The Highlands Point Overlook is at an elevation of roughly 6,300 feet. It's a relatively short uphill hike from the parking lots at Mountain Vista High School or Red Tail Park.

The Highlands Point Overlook is located along the Douglas County East West Trail, and can also be accessed by a flat trail from the parking lots at the Grigs Road Pavillion. The walk from The Grigs Road Pavillion to Highlands Point is a great sunset walk. It's flat, easy walking, but you're above the surrounding terrain, and can see out in all directions, while you are walking in a westerly direction.
