For fifteen years, Highland has been dedicated to fostering a bike community that welcomes everyone, from first-time riders to world-class athletes. This year we’re celebrating our Highland Family with a six-part video series exploring what inspires so many of us to call Highland home. New episodes will drop the last week of every month! #highlandishome
When you think of the Highland Family, who do you think of? For Highland’s staff, the Highland Family means more than just the people they ride with. This month, we hear from Nick, Joe, Josh, and Cari about why they chose to build their lives here, and why they now call Highland “home.” Read More
We wouldn’t have a Highland to call home without the dedicated team of builders who design, construct, and maintain the trails we all love to ride. In this month’s episode of Highland is Home, we hear from trail crew members James, Jordan, Whitney, Zach, and Justin about what brought them to this mountain, and why they continue to do what they do.

Highland Mountain was built with a vision of creating a park that would cater to riders of all ages, abilities, and disciplines: a home for any style. This month Wayne, Anthony, Kyle, Dustin, and Kajay tell us about what they love to ride and how they’ve found a shared passion among the Highland family. Read More.
“We’re doing things we never thought were possible.” Once generally considered outliers in the sport, in recent years the women of Highland have set the stage for an explosion of female ridership and progression. In this month’s episode of Highland Is Home we talk to Chelsea, Brooke, Dawn, and Tania about the importance of community and what they’re excited to see from women on bikes next. Read More.
Over the last fifteen years, the Highland Family has grown in ways we could have never imagined. In this year’s final episode of Highland Is Home, we talk to four of the families who have found a second home at Highland, where they can share their passion for bikes and bring up a new generation of rider: meet the Bensons, the Andersons, the Morrises, and the Paysons.

One of the many common denominators the Highland community shares is a passion for progression: in the sport, in the terrain, and as individuals. In this season of Highland Is Home we’ll be exploring the myriad ways that passion can manifest, from those first careful laps down Freedom Trail to the exhilaration of the slopestyle course and everything in between. Episodes will release on the third Friday of the month. Episode 1 drops November 19th. #highlandfamily #highlandishome
What do you remember of your first downhill experience? Was it thrilling? Harrowing? A bit of both? We all start somewhere! This month we’re highlighting five different riders who share a common Highland introduction: the Find Your Ride program. Meet Jason and Danielle, who visited Highland for the first time this summer; Justin, who has built a career coaching and racing; Jill, who used the FYR to get back to basics with a year of downhill already under her belt; and Joe, who went from taking Find Your Ride lessons to leading them and is now Highland’s Patrol Manager. #Americasbikepark
When Highland started offering summer camp programs in 2011, the mountain biking industry looked a lot different than it does now. Ten years later, we’ve watched the first few generations of Highland kids grow up alongside an evolving sport. In this episode of Highland Is Home, we’re highlighting three Highland Camps alumni who are taking the passion they’ve had for mountain biking from an early age and forging their own unique career paths in the industry. This won’t be the last you hear from Kaidan, James, and Peter. #highlandishome Music by James Angiulo (IG @james.angiulo) – “Ambitious” & “It’s Alright”
When developing the second season of Highland Is Home we really wanted to highlight the progression we witness every season, both from individual riders and our community as a whole. In this month’s episode, we hear from VP Dave Smutok about the evolution of Highland’s trail design and training programs through the years. Riders Tom Smith, Lachlan Becker, and Amanda Vansant tell us about their own experiences of ‘leveling up’ at Highland–from Wednesduro to the Slopestyle course–and how the Highland Family ties it all together. #highlandishome
