3 Crosses View of Meeker

Hiking the Trail



Majestic mountain views, tranquil aspen groves, wild animals in their native habitat, starry skies, and vibrant sunrises and sunsets are only a part of the Highlands experience.  Located at the foot of Mt. Meeker, our 285 acre site includes a great variety of streams, ridges, meadows, rock outcroppings, aspen groves, and pine forests.

Hiking Trails:
  Our trails range from a gentle meadow loop to the popular hike to the Hidden Room.  For the bold, the nearest ridge provides an excellent sunrise hike to the crosses on top.  Most of the hikes on our site will take one to two hours to complete (but they will take as long as you wish if you stop, sit on a rock, and meditate for a while).  Within a five minute drive are entrance points for Rocky Mountain National Park, the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area, and the Roosevelt National Forest.

Nature Trail:
  Designed by a qualified naturalist, the Highlands Camp Nature Trail has 20 stations in a wide variety of nature situations.  On the trail, you can explore not only meadows and forests, but also stream valleys and beaver ponds.  Additionally, we have reference books available for the more than 200 wildflowers that flourish on our site.

Meditation Trail:
  Our meditation trail, designed by a local pastor, has several stations where you may stop for contemplation or to reflect on our Presbyterian faith symbols.

Air Hockey
Indoor/Outdoor Fun:  Horseshoe pits, sand volleyball court, softball field, a sledding hill in the winter, frisbee golf course, air hockey, ping-pong, foosball, puzzles and table games are all available for use by our guests.

The following features of our site are available for a reasonable fee and must be reserved prior to your arrival.  Please see our rate sheet for details.  Our facilitators will be on hand for safety and insurance reasons.
