trail was mostly clear and really dry/dusty. D had a fresh tree down around 14mi. The horse flys were brutal!
Don't worry. It's all downhill from here.

Yep Highland is my favorite trail for this reason, I started riding it in the 90s and it still has that same remote feeling today. I really hope Highland can avoid the machine cut swoopy berm craze, those are fun to ride but good old gnarly singletrack beats it all.


I am glad I am not the only one with this opinion.

AMEN.

I love the variety that highland offers compared to the other trails. I was recently disappointed to see that bench cutting has started out on the Orchards loop on Gruber's Grinder....I've always enjoyed that raw lack of flow technical remoteness of grubers.

Did it rain a lot here? Wanting to ride this today as it seems to be the driest in the area after a rain.

Trail is good. Deluge made some of the fall line descents a little steeper. Large dead tree down between .5 and 1 mile mark on the switchbacks.
