Uphill Access

Highland offers uphill access on Wednesday and Thursday evenings throughout the season. These nights are referred to as “Wednesduro” and “Thursduro.”

How does it work? During the specified hours,  Freedom Trail is opened to uphill traffic only. Pedal up and then descend on any of our downhill trails. (You can check out our trail map here.) It’s the perfect way to earn your turns! 

Uphill access is only permitted during designated hours. You may not pedal up the mountain when the lift is running.

Riders please note: There is no artificial lighting on any of our trails. Please come prepared with appropriate personal lights (headlamps, bike lights, etc.) so that you don’t find yourself caught in the dark.

WEDNESDAY FOR WINGS: For every day pass sold on a Wednesday in 2022, Highland will donate $1 to Wings for Life, supporting their mission to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
