Highland Forest Nature Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Highland Forest County Park comes alive in winter with the sounds of people having fun. In addition to 20 miles of ski trails which are monitored by a volunteer Nordic Ski Patrol, there’s Skyline Hill for sledding, horse-drawn sleigh rides on weekends and holidays, and even a pioneer museum which transports you back to the 19th century, when settlers skied for survival. The park is a network of trails, fire lanes, and truck trails that sits in a high land area, with Arab Hill being the high point (1,940 feet). Terrain: Varied."

"Here’s a forest sampler: A 2-mile loop through hardwood and evergreen woodlands to discover one of the area’s most popular wilderness parklands."

"Long loop trails are hard to find in the region, but the Phil Suters Memorial Main Trail around Highland Forest is among those treasured few. ough a popular destination, this trail proves that distance is the best assurance for solitude. You will definitely encounter people along the trails but only in passing. e trail system here is a veritable maze of intersecting hiking/skiing and biking trails. ere are shorter options available and, more important, many alternative routes to explore on your own for future visits."

Trails are good, however with all the rain we have had, they are very muddy. Plus many of them allow bikes, which causes even more erosion. I did both the 3.0 and 4.2 mile loops.
