“A mellow fire road with nice scenery and plenty of wildlife.”

Happy Valley is the fire road that connects all the lower trails in the Carvins Cove trail system. Nothing difficult here, just a 16 mile round trip from one end to the other. Nice scenery along the way with mountain views, lake views, and plenty of wildlife.

It's a great ride if the trails are overly soggy or if you just want a longish ride through the woods.
