The section of trails at Highlands Point can be accessed from Mountain Vista High School or via the East-West Regional trail parking lot on Griggs rd. Note that all but two of these trails are gated for HR residents only. Trail is accessed by taking the paved bike path in back of Mountain Vista HS until it turns to gravel, then just follow that up the hill. The first trail on the right and ahead are the East-West Regional Trail, open to everyone. Continuing straight up the hill, the first trail on the left is the Metro Districts Big-Dry trail, also open to everyone. You can turn left or continue straight up the gravel path to the top (Highlands Point) and continue on the East-West Regional trail to the Griggs rd. parking lot. The view at the top of Highlands Point is excellent, markers point out Devil's Head Peak, Mt. Evans, Chatfield, etc. The gated trails off to the left and right provide access to approx 7mi of private HR trails. Trail builders built large "bumps" every 100ft or so on some sections to prevent erosion. Overall, a mixture of narrow and wide singletrack, great views, along with intervals of short uphill and downhill sections make this a really fun trail with a roller coaster feel to it.
