Wildlife on the Highland Rustic Trails

While exploring the Highland Rustic Trails, our guests have the opportunity to encounter a variety of native animals as they scurry, scamper, and fly through the forest and pastures. This rich ecosystem is also home to many shy animals that prefer to keep their distance. Through the efforts of our dedicated trails volunteers, we are pleased to share trail camera footage of some of our most elusive wilderness friends. Make sure to bookmark this page as we will update the videos when we capture new and exciting footage!
