Spring snowmelt brings wildflowers and mule deer out in droves. Summers offers an array of hiking opportunities and PCT travelers from everywhere. Fall ushers in a myriad of colors when the oaks shed their leaves in preparation for snow. And winter bestows a place to ski and escape from the hustle and bustle of the cities. Mountain High is situated in an ideal hub of outdoor activities. Everything from hiking, geocaching, hunting, camping, disc golfing, mountain biking... you name it, it’s there. It offers a little of everything with merging trailheads and campgrounds situated in and around its perimeter. For me, it’s a great place to hike and explore. To visit friends who work the resort. To go skiing and get lost looking for geocaches. To look for the little bits of history left behind by the great outdoor recreation boom from the 1920’s. I adore this place and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants an adventure no matter the time of year.

If you do the frisbee golf course at Mountain High you can do about a 4.5 mile hike. Go up the mountain at the fork for Jackson Lake and Palmdale. Absolutely beautify scenery and a treehouse on hole 21. Best part is the lodge serves the best wood fired pizza on hole 10 to stop for lunch. $7 to play the course, hiking is free. Free parking.
