The Backcountry Wilderness Area is 8,200 acres of conserved open space. In January of 2006, Shea Homes graciously completed early conveyance of 874 acres to the HRCA to build the Wildcat Mountain Trail System. In May 2009 the rest of the Backcountry was conveyed to the HRCA. In August of 2009 the HRCA opened The Highlands Point Trail System.
Follow us on Facebook to get occasional updates on trail conditions and closures.
The trails meander through grasslands, scrub oak and mountain mahogany shrubs, and ponderosa pines. Beautiful rock outcroppings are visible in several areas of the trails. Native plants and wildlife are both plentiful and diverse.
Five and a half miles of beginner to intermediate trails. Trails can be accessed from Rocky Heights Middle School or 11950 Monarch Blvd. Trails close annually from January 1 – March 31 for wintering wildlife. Trails within the system may close for eagle nesting.
Six point seven miles of intermediate trails. Trails can be accessed from Mountain Vista High School, Douglas County East/West Trailhead (1170 Grigs Road).
