Summer is finally here! 


The weather has been great this season. The days have been sunny and in the 70’s and low 80’s. The cool mountain weather is perfect for a stroll through town or to go on a hike. Whiteside Mountain is a beautiful easy 2 mile hike with a forever view on top. For an evening of winding down and looking over the town, Sunset Rock has a magnificent view especially when the sun is setting. If you would rather see some scenery without the walk, Highlands has Dry Falls where you can actually walk behind and and Bridal Veil Falls which you can drive under.


Other than the scenery in Highlands, there are many activities and tourist attractions.


For some adventurous fun, the Highlands Aerial Park features 7 ziplines including the "Squealing Mare,” which is their ¼ mile long zipline 210 feet above the ground.
