Description

The Highlands Trail stays on the plateau from the Lollypop Trail and Nike Trail via the Nike Trail to Highlands Trail Connector to the Hemlocks Trail right before its descent to the valley where it meets the Cave Trail.

This is a more beginner-friendly alternative to the lower section of the Hemlocks Trail.

Thank you to whoever re-routed the trail to avoid that perpetual mud pit area! Mar 23, 2016
