City of Highland Community Trails Day

April 13, 2019 8:00 AM –11:00 AM
Event Information

“Take a hike.  Hit the trails and see Highland" is this year’s theme for the 25th Annual Community Trails Day.  This event will be held on April 13 from 8-11 a.m. beginning at Aurantia Park on Greenspot Road.  The purpose of this event is to promote Highland’s community trails system, and to engage everyone in a healthy and beneficial outdoor activity.

This year’s selected hiking and biking trail route will start from the trailhead in Aurantia Park going north to the new segment of the Aplin Trail which connects to the Red Hill Trail behind Cram Elementary School.  Hikers will then head east on a loop of trails including the North Fork Trail, a portion of the Shelton Trail, then back onto the Red Hill Trail, returning to the Aplin Trail and back to the park.  This loop is approximately 3.5 miles long and includes easy to moderate elevation gains.  

Along the North Fork Trail hikers have the option of visiting Plunge Creek and the Natural Parkland Trails, adding a short, yet moderate to strenuous trail loop, for a longer and more invigorating hike.  This extra excursion would add approximately 0.8 miles to the hike for an overall total of 4.3 miles.  

The Shelton Trail segment will provide hikers with the opportunity to attend an Open House event at Fire Station 2 in conjunction with the Community Trails Day Event.  All are welcome to stop in.

If you are interested in joining the fun, we will meet at 8 a.m. at Aurantia Park off of Greenspot Road.  If you would like more information or a map, please visit the cityofhighland.org/Events/ page on the City’s website or send a message to: trails@cityofhighland.org
