Mountain Adventures and Recreation

Since its earliest days, Highlands has promoted itself as a healthy escape from the stresses of the rest of the world.  Dr. Mary Lapham’s pioneering medical work here in Highlands during that latter part of the 1800s was predicated upon this nugget of wisdom, “Get up and get busy!”  It’s clear that this tiny community has taken the Good Doctor’s advice to heart.

You’ll find an abundance of things to do that’ll ensure that you’re following in this cherished Highlands tradition. Be inspired to make the most of every moment with recreation and adventure on our mountains.

Your guide to Mountain Adventures is here or pick up our brochure at the Welcome Center, 108 Main Street, Highlands, NC.
