Uphill Access

Several years ago, a group of die-hard enduro riders started showing up at Highland on Wednesday nights after the lift had closed and pedaling to the summit. They called this weekly habit “Wednesduro.” Over time it caught on, and we now offer official uphill access on designated evenings throughout the season.

How does it work? During 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.
