Highlands will be officially opening this weekend! It will be good to see this local jewel up and running. Been going up there to help since last late summer and it has really come a long way. The thought there is quality, not quantity. The place will just continue to improve as time goes on.
The owners are all sick riders who have spent nearly 3 full years working on the project around the clock.
The riding there will favor at least strong intermediate-expert riders initially until more beginner trails are added. We defiantely plan to be involved at the mountain, hosting demos, putting on jump jams and doing clinics. It will be our local testing ground for sure.
Good to see such an emphasis on flow too! you could do all the trails on a Ridge if you are a competent hardtail rider...which somehow I am not anymore.I've hit the trails on both my r-9 and a prototype 7 inch travel freeride bike and both have advantages, but I'd say a freeride bike will be way more fun on the jump trail.
Pretty sure they are the only lift access freeride bike only park in the nation! right in Northfield NH, which is 20 minutes north of the state capitol, Concord.
