The Push for Sustainability at Highland

Sustainability has always been one of the core values of the Highland Trails business. Maintaining the land we ride on requires planning and careful attention to detail, and it’s something we pride ourselves on. Highland’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond our work on the trails. In recent years Highland has partnered with CLIF to ramp up sustainability efforts in other areas of mountain operations. With CLIF’s support, we’ve been able to implement incremental changes around the park that address our environmental impact day-to-day. Our first target was plastic bottle waste. As mountain bikers, we drink a lot of water. Single-use plastic water bottles are notorious for having a short frame of usefulness and a long-lasting breakdown period. The CLIF water station, located at the base of the lift, provides fresh potable water for refilling your reusable bottle. Similarly, we installed a water fountain in the lower level of the lodge….

Closure for Trail Maintenance and Lift Service

Highland Mountain Bike park will be closed next week, Monday, August 15th–Wednesday, August 17th and will re-open on Thursday August 18th. Highland will be working in conjunction with the New Hampshire Tramway board to make necessary enhancements to our chairlift. Additional anchors will be installed to the summit terminal. These anchors will increase the safety of the chairlift by approximately three times the State of New Hampshire requirement. While the chairlift terminal is being enhanced, the trail crew will be working round the clock to perform trail maintenance throughout the mountain. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. Highland will be open the remainder of August everyday! There is still lots of riding left for the 2016 season. Check out our Calendar of events for all the Highland happenings this season. We are lucky to have such an amazing community of riders who support Highland year after year! #Americasbikepark
