Highland Mt. from the west.
Highland Mt. is 19 miles east of state line and 40 miles NW of Laughlin. Due to a fallen Yucca tree blocking the road the roundtrip distance is about 5 miles. Instead of following the gully/wash route Zdon recommends, I hiked along the west ridge of the peak to see where I was going and even more importantly, memorize how to get back to the vehicle. There is some exposure on the final section of the summit ridge.
