The Lost Hiker is a fun, down-to-earth bar that offers two pool tables, darts, pac woman and video cornhole. There's karaoke 🎤 on Tuesday nights, though I've not been. Drinks are reasonably priced and the people are nice. Quite different than many Highlands restaurants and...More

It's Highlands and you never know who you'll run into in town or at the Hiker. One of the local Hot spots. We love to meet with friends here after dinner in town. Nice walk and did I mention it's Highlands?

This is one of the few bars in Highlands. Good place to watch a game in the afternoon and they have great lice music on the weekend nights. Laid back atmosphere and have a solid selection.

Enjoyed a few beers here after a 30 mile Appalachian trail hike. No food so we had to order pizza. I would definitely go back!

We have a cabin outside of Highlands with no TV or internet. The Lost Hiker is great about letting us hang out, watch sports games, drink beer, eat our carry-in pizza, and check internet. They've even let us come in when they've been closed before....More

Lost or not, the Lost Hiker is a fun place to hangout. The bartenders are always nice and attentive. We usually go in the afternoons when it is on the quiet side so we can talk, but if you want to catch some good music...More
