Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Highlands trail is an admirable poster child for new-school sustainable singletrack, carved like a slithering rattlesnake out of the hillsides between the bottom of Bob’s trail and the beginning of Corrals trail, and forming a great loop with those trails. Most of Highlands is a moderate, steady climb or descent, with corners for days. But there’s one section where the trail picks up a piece of legacy singletrack and plunges steeply to the creek. That means either way you travel, you’ll have some moments of pain and some moments of giddy delight.

    Corrals is covered with a layer of packed snow. Not a bad option for when the lower trails turn into soup.

    Highlands is clear and dry.
    Corrals is clear (for sure) from highlands to Bob’s
    Bob’s is clear and dry with creek crossings.
