Trail Report: 8/17

Wednesday, August 17, 2016 LIFT UPDATE: The additional anchors have been installed to the summit terminal. These anchors have increased the safety of the chairlift by approximately three times the State of New Hampshire requirement. Thank you for your understanding and patience.   Trail UPDATE: In the mean time the Trail Crew has taken full advantage of the much needed rain and some down time to get out and maintain beat up sections of trail all across the mountain. Things are looking great for our reopening of the mountain on Thursday and we will continue to work on trails and take advantage of this awesome weather pattern. Thank you for your patience as things tend to deteriorate after over a month with no rain we look forward to getting the rest of the hill riding better than ever as we head into fall! NEW Freedom Trail After a month of work…

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
