Always nice to walk around Highland where you can take a short hike in the trails, watch the frogs jump in the pond or find fireflies at night.

A very good place to walk, sit and take in the quiet. Is very safe, and all the people seem friendly. You can skate on the pond in winter.

This is a beautiful area with many fairly level hiking trails with some mild elevation. Frequently used by dog walkers and for recreation. Free all year availability for hiking and during the winter for informal snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The pond was originally used...More

When I was a kid in the 60's, Highland Pond was the most fun in the winter. It had a side sectioned off for the hockey players, and the rest of it, 2/3 of the pond, was for everyone else. I walked almost a mile...More

The pond used to be used for ice skating in winter but no longer is. People mostly go there to walk their dogs or jog along the cool wooded road/path. A few take their lunch breaks there, eating mostly in their cars. Some kids try...More
