As of 12/18/2018, trails at Highland Springs are closed to bikes and horses temporarily. Due to the recent rain events and future rain events, trails will be closed to non-hikers for erosion control measures. We will routinely assess the trails as weather dries up and will notify the public in the following months once trails are safe again for all users of Highland Springs trails. In the meantime, stay safe, stay dry and enjoy the park!
The Lake County Watershed Protection District owns approximately 3,200 acres of property in the Adobe Creek Watershed commonly known as the Highland Springs Recreation Area.
