In honor of “Take a Hike Month,” the city of Highland invites the residents to hit the trails and see Highland with a community hike of City Creek Levee Trail Loop from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23.

The hike will begin at the main entrance to the trail along Base Line near the Albertson’s shopping center at Boulder Avenue. The purpose of this event is to promote Highland’s community trails system and to engage everyone in a healthy and beneficial outdoor activity.

This year’s selected hiking trail route will start from the trailhead (along Base Line) in City Creek Levee Trail Loop going north to Highland, then hikers will head east across the bridge, loop to the other side of the trail, and ending back to Base Line. This loop is approximately 2.3 miles long and includes easy to moderate elevation gains.

Along the City Creek Levee Trail Loop hikers have the option of visiting various stations along the trail, which include newly installed interpretive signs that mention the history of city of Highland.

Those interested in joining in the fun will meet at 8 a.m. at trailhead along of Base Line, adjacent to Albertson’s. Attendees can park at the Highland Village Plaza and walk over to the trailhead. For more information or a map, visit the or send a message to
