Highlands is an excellent descent off the Ednamvaara. The trail features outstanding views and starts off with great technical riding over rocks and then flows down to the treeline.

Access is only up and down the trail and as such all users should be aware of both climbing and descending users. Always control your speed and be polite to everyone you meet, on wheels or feet.

It's critical that users respect the alpine environment while using this trail and always remain on trail.

Access Info

The trail is accessed by riding to the top of The Ednam Lodge trail and continuing up.
