Went with my dad and some buddies to HP yesterday for the first time in two or three months. All-in-all a great day of riding!!! We rode a good combination of track and trails. All three tracks were in great shape, MX2 was well prepped and ended up having some nice ruts form as the day went on. Traction on MX2 was primo for most of the day. We rode mostly 2,3, and 4 diamond trails that were all in great shape despite the rain that we've had over the last few weeks. We saw Paul hard at work smoothing out the outer perimeter loop a few times! As always the staff was helpful and courteous. Without a doubt the best staff at any ride park in Georgia. Can't wait to go back!

you go pay the fee to ride and are left alone by the staff to have fun. the trails are marked well. some are rough but you know what you are getting your self into before you go down them . the loops are fun and fast. the trails are rated appropriately. its also nice to ride a place that's not full of red necks on 4 wheelers and side by sides. trashing the trails with beer cans and Marlboro packs like durhamtown.

HP is simply too far away (we hail from SW FL and are looking at a 10-hour drive) so it'd be even better if the park was closer.
Actually, I was disappointed that the spa day was moved to accommodate the many as I really, really, really wanted to join the ladies. Since HP is so far away, I need to plan ahead several weeks.

The Absolute biggest letdown imaginable, The track was bone dry,no water truck/system whatsoever.Rain ruts,rocks(BASEBALL SIZE) Nice layout though.
Least Favorite
No water truck/system.For the price they charge for riding,and as long as they have been opened now, there could be something(even rent a water truck)when they have a large turnout. Not a safe place for kids, Wild and crazy four wheelers going everywhere, I saw a least 3 with no helmet, popping 3rd gear wheelies in the parking lot.I told the staff about it, at the shop,but no one ever did anything.
Most Favorite
The whole idea/concept of the place is very cool. Nice MX track layout. Nice trails.Nice shop. But It fell way short on maintenance.I could understand, if the place was brand new, but it has been opened now for awhile! Riders from that region, in Georgia, don't have anything else, so they are just happy to go ride. On the west coast, there are so many facilities in competition, that they have to have a groomed track w/water for anybody to even show up.You get the impression that the owner doesn't want to put anymore into the place,than he has too.The bare minimum, to keep it running.(It seems like).PLEASE GET A WATER TRUCK!(Or charge a discounted rate)

Parking lot was FULL of trash, but not the kind you put in the garbage.Can you say jimbob billybob sarahbob Bubber jethrow bowdean cuz bubba cooter ..., you name it, all in attendance,THEY ALL LIKED MY PURDEE MOTOR-CICLE, and were fascinated that it had only had one "sprang" on the shock, and that it was "wata cooled" or the other one, "wheres the carbarator on this thang"

The new MXGP track gets better every time that we go! The track was prepped great today. Very wide track that allows for passing on the whole track. This track has high speed areas, some tight turns, lots of elevation changes, off camber uphill and downhill turns, lots of tabletops, a few small but safe doubles, and nice viewing areas.

The only thing that would make this track any better would be a watering system but that would cost mega bucks.

The only bad thing I could find was the fact that you can't see the track from the parking area. Maybe in the future there will be an area for spectators to watch from. The track is great with good speed and jumps are big enough but safe if you come up short unlike a normal supercross design.

The MX track is ok, but nothing to write home about. The trails on the other hand are awesome! I'm still a beginner on the trails, so I mainly rode the 2 and 3 diamond ones. The trails were in excellent condition, with enough variation in difficulty and terrain for any rider.

My only real complaints about Highland Park are the MX track, which I understand they are building a new one (can't wait to ride it), and the distance from my house (which is not really relevent).

Love the 1-way trails, because you don't have to worry about oncoming traffic, especially important for the younger riders. I also like the perimeter road setup, because it makes it easy to meet-up with people. Our party often times split up and road different trails (2,3,4 diamond).

The facilities are great. Real bathrooms and showers, picnic tables, and plenty of trash cans.

The day started out more than a bit wet and slick. Fortunately, the trails became much better as the day went on. We had a blast on them.
Least Favorite
Watch out for the manager, he can be one nasty character. I could tell you a story about treatment of one customer (not me) but it seems space does not permit here. Suffice it to say, you don't want to aggravate him; although that can be challenge since is is not at all clear as to what aggravates him.

As for the other staff, they always have and still do seem to be nice folks. In the past we’ve also met the owner, who also seems to be a nice guy. So how they ended up with this current manager is a mystery.
Most Favorite
Our rider group (5 of us today) found the trails challenging and fun as usual - with variations in speed and difficulty. And the MXGPX track was a pleasure. However, HP cannot compare to Duramhamtown Plantation in the pure MX track category; although it looks like HP might be in the process of substantially upgrading in the MX category right now. However, on the trail side, HP is heads above DP. While there are public trail areas like Houston Valley that have great trails, HP has very good trails combined with good facilities and the greater safety of a one-way trail system.
Extras
The facilities, now including toilet & showers were fine. I sure appreciated being able to shower up before heading home.

Most Favorite
For those who have not been here before, I have been coming every week now since discovering 2 months ago. Conditions have always been terrific. A rainy spring in GA makes this park even better. The outer perimeter loop is about 5 miles long, and the inner loop is about 3. All the other trails branch off of these. Trails are one way and really nice. They have nice jumps and elevation changes. I can ride the 5 diamonds but find that some of the 2 and 3 are actually more fun. I actually like to rip around the outer perimeter more than anything. It is fast and a fun ride. The MXGP track is fun with a lot of smaller jumps. Nothing intimidating at all, even the few doubles are very small and easy. Beginners will even like them. It is a little bit rocky and hard pack, but I got a sneak peak at the new MX track that will be open soon, and let me tell you...that thing is awesome. Wide, long, fast and fun. Reminds me of something in Europe. It's gonna be great. I hope it opens soon. Come ride this place. You will be so happy you came here. If you have a little rising star, there is a great Pee Wee track, and mind you...it is a track and it is nice and long (relatively speaking). You can see every portion of it from any spot so no worries about the little one going astray.
Extras
There are bathrooms and showers. Not porta-potties. A real building. There are also a handful of cabins to rent. Really cool. After a days ride, get the grill going, open the cooler and relax and spend the night thinking about how you are going to attack the trails in the morning. There is a new huge parking area, but I prefer parking near the cabins where there are picnic tables and trees. It's like being in a camp ground. The trash barrels are always empty and the place is very clean. Just go already. If you are a KTM owner you are in luck because of the KTM shop right on site. If you are not a KTM rider, buy your pre-mix, filter oil, chain lube and other stuff here because I found the prices to be better than my local Honda/Suzuki dealer, and it helps keep the park financed. It has never been crowded when I go. I normally ride during the week but have been on Saturday's, which is the busiest day there (but still the trails are by no means even close to crowded). Go and have fun. If you have a camper, bring it and stay a couple of days.

I had A friend from Knoxville, Tennessee to come down and ride with me for my 49th birthday. We rented one of the cabins for two days and it was great to have a nice bed to lay down in at night. The showers were another great addition. This was the first time either one of us had been to Highland Park. We had a awesome time. We started riding anound 2:00 on Friday and quit around 2:00 on Sunday. We put 135 miles on the bikes. We rode on everything from the primiter road to 3D trails. We didn't try any 4 or 5D trails. That will be for the next trip. I had a blast on the MXGP track. Great for remembering old times ( no triples or dangerous stuff). We had a great time and hope to come back soon.

After traveling from South Florida and setting up a 36' Camper and 31' Toyhauler management requested we relocate. Mangement said we were blocking the roadway, but our photos prove otherwise. We were very carfull not to block any roadways. The problem was there was not another spot even close to being level enough to relocate to. The only other level spot was already taken by a class A being used by employees. Management was very rude about the issue and didn't care to take care of us proper. We paid our overnight camping fee and left.

When we first arrived, it seemed like the place was packed. A dozen or so in line at the check-in and the parking area seemed pretty full also. A group of on-line riding junkies from the Usenet newsgroup rec.motorcycles.dirt had been planning a trip to a Southeast destination for several months and a chance meeting in the ATL for one of the members delivering a grandson back to his folks set the date. HPR was chosen as our destination of choice and there was something for everyone. Riders ranged from newbie youngsters to seasoned HS, Endoro and DS veterans. Rain prior in the week left behind a few puddles and slick spots, but overall traction was great and dust was minimal. Once we left the parking area, we hardly saw another soul all day. Trails are well-marked and ONE-WAY (WooHoo). What few riders we did encounter (2 and 4-wheel) were courteous and offered help the time or 2 we had a rider down. The rating system seemed right on target. Those of us riding with the little ones didn't venture on anything above a 2D but still saw some good challenging terrain that put the little guys to the test. The other group rode pretty much everything and they were suitably impressed with the 4D & 5D trails. (This coming from a group of guys that have ridden at >10K ft in the Sawtooth Mtn's in Idaho and other such spots.

Would've like to see the PeeWee area a little closer to the parking area. The non-riding parents would have liked to be able to drive their car down to the track (maybe you can, we didn't ask) to watch the guys tear it up. Will be glad when showers are available. Wish it was closer than 2.5 hours from the house :-(

There are enough trails to take a significant number of riders without feeling crowded. Very kid-friendly and like the idea of the Ranger program.

The variety of trails, the on-site KTM dealership -- wow! It may be me but those ratings are every bit the diificulty they say they are...I didn't attempt any 5 diamond trails after the 4 diamond gave me everything I wanted from it--saw KTM Bob & wife out there ripping around as well.
Extras
Bathrooms are portajohns, it would be nice to have an area to wash up, parking was nice, some shaded, sme pinic tables. I would rate this place 3rd of the biggre three: 1. Durhamtown (even though the staff isn't very friendly)2. Broad River (just a journey from the ATL but best staff and best fun, notenough trail variety like DP or track variety but what is there is great and #3 Highland. Close.

This place has it. Tight single track. you can make a good loop out of the whole place.
Like enter on 6, then 14 then 13 then 10 or 11 then back to 2 then do the whole outer loop to 15. then back to parking for bed.

Cool place first time being here. rode it all in one day. coming back next year.

Oddly enough, all the one-way roads- it makes it difficult if you're looking for a trail, and you see it as you shoot past it at 40mph on loose traction surfaces.
Perhaps some "Trail #1:Right 200 yards" markers would help??

The 10 minutes of explanation of the map, riding area, and trail suggestions.

All the atv trails were not very much of a challange for the more experienced riders.For the moment it is geared more for the 2 wheelers and they thought they owned the place to boot. On more than once i had bad thoughts of what my 500 polaris could to to one of those 2 wheelers.The owners promised that harder trails are in the development stages and were coming very soon. I guess we will wait and see. Also please update your website and let me know when the trails are finished. for now highland is not worth the money for atv riders.

Been there 5 or 6 times now and had dust for the first time on these last 2 visits! One or two days after a big rain the middle and perimeter roads can be SLICK, but the trails remain in surprisingly good shape, nice and loamy. The tough trails are #4, #7, #10, portions of #12, and #13(from what I hear, haven't been on #13). Those have steep up and downs and are mostly off-camber. You have to be on your toes or you'll be on your butt in a hurry. The downhills, in my opinion, are hairier than the uphills. The easier trails are #1, #2, #3, #5, #6, #11, and #15, all ATV-wide, off-camber, up and down. #15 is probably the hardest of the ATV-wide trails but it's also the most fun. It's a rollercoaster, has only been open about a week and will only get better when it smooths out a little.
Least Favorite
Just for sanity's sake I wish there was more flat stuff besides the middle & perimeter roads. You need some time to recover. Also, when you exit some of the trails you have to go all the way around the middle or perimeter roads to enter a different trail.
Most Favorite
The staff is friendly and actually heads out onto the trails to check for trouble. It's good to know that bike maintenance is available on site if needed, too. They'll match some of the lowest prices I've seen on tires.

The porta-poopers were clean and amazingly didn't burn my eyes when I went it.

About 45 miles of riding now, with trail ratings from 1 to 5 diamonds, Novice to Super Expert. Those who have been down the 4 and 5 diamond trails know we are not kidding about the difficulty level, but we also have many miles of moderate to easy trails to ride.

Cabins and bathroom/shower facility not yet built, but they are coming! Porta Potties suffice in the meantime.

If you like interesting and challenging terrain, we have it. If you like scenic views, we have it. You can cruise around the perimeter road, or if you are up to a good physical workout and you are a well experienced rider, you can spend some time on trails 10 and 13 - five diamond rated, with huge elevation changes.

Nice shaded parking area, clean park-like setting in mountain forest, large supply of on-hand parts and accessories as well as a complete shop to handle all your service needs

Highlands is currently about 35 miles of 1 way trails. The only 2 way is the main trail into the perimeter loop and a short section at the end of trail #6. The lower perimeter to the middle ridge road is all wide ATV type trails and is suitable for anyone including kids on smaller bikes. Over the course of this smaller loop, there are 2 bridges, and a few jumps here and there. The other wide open trail is the Spur rd to the Upper Perimeter Road. It was a very fun trail to ride as it takes you to the top of a ridge and the scenery is awesome.

When you decide to leave the wider trails to try out some of the tighter trails. Trail #5 & #6 are still both rated a 1D and would be the first two trails to attempt if you are a newer rider or have younger kids. Trail #5 is a fun trail and should be one of the first a new rider attempts after venturing off the main loops. Trail #6 starts off pretty easy going through the woods down in a valley with a few bridge crossings over a small creek. It does have some moderate hill climbs towards the end, but isn't too bad.

The next level of trails goes up to a 2D rating, and starts throwing in some steeper hill climbs and off camber spots to add some excitement. Trail #2 makes a small loop and comes back out almost where you started on the West Perimeter Rd. Itís more in the open and higher up, so it should be drier if itís a wet day. It has some decent hills and a few off camber spots. Trail #3 is a short steep downhill section that breaks off of trail #2 and connects you to Trail #5.

Trail #1 you will find on your way back to camp. It's hidden off to the side of West Perimeter road and basically follows the road back to camp. It's a pretty easily trail except for 2 technical down hill to uphill sections. The 2nd combo could give newer riders some problems. It dumps you out on the West Perimeter right at the entrance to Trail #5.

Trail #12 is very secluded and can be found on the upper Perimeter Rd. (It's and old Still Loop). It is labeled 2D for motorcycles and 3D for ATVís, but some sections of this trail have extremely steep hill climbs and lots of off camber sections that to me would almost would push it to the 3D mark for MC also. If it's wet, this trail definitely needs your attention.

Trail #7 is an awesome motorcycle trail that branches off of trail #6, but involves a technical hill climb right from the start.

If you get on any of the trails above 2D, you definitely need your wits about hill climbing, tight technical sections, and off camber sections.
Least Favorite
It gets quite slick after a rain and add 2 diamonds to any trail, especially the tight woods trails.
Most Favorite
The scenery is awesome, especially high up on the ridge.

They have all the trails well marked with arrows, ribbons and other signs telling you which way to go or not go. All the difficulties of the trail are marked at their entrance. They also have caution signs when you are approaching a trail intersection.
Extras
The staff was very friendly and helpful. At this point, they are just starting out so there is no electricity or running water, but I'm sure those ammenities will be coming.
