Camps & Lessons / Camps / Overview /
Here at Highland Mountain Bike Park, we understand how important choosing a summer camp experience is for you and your family. That’s why we’re here to help make the adventure-seeking a little easier.
What is a bike park?
At Highland, a specially outfitted chairlift transports bikes and riders to the mountain summit. The park offers a vast network of carefully designed trails built for riders of all ability levels. 100% dedicated to biking — we are “America’s Bike Park.”
