“An easy, meandering downhill trail.”
— Matt Goodman on Jul 11, 2014
RestrictionsAccess and lift pass through Spirit Mountain office.
** Can be ridden uphill during non-lift hours. Downhill only during lift hours!
DescriptionThis is a relatively easy, meandering, rolling length of singletrack geared toward beginners.
From the top of the lift/parking areas, cross Skyline Parkway (paved road) and enter the singletrack on relatively flat terrain. At this point, you're passing through Spirit Mountain's camping area (hence the name "Happy Camper"). Note the trailside campsites!
After passing the campground, cross Skyline Parkway again, and start getting into the downhill section. There are no difficult features (no jumps, gaps, drops, etc.) on this run. It essentially descends the hill in a long series of bermed switchbacks and small rollers.
NOTE: This run provides access to some very difficult trails & jump areas (Boss Hog, etc.). Watch the signs to stay on Happy Camper.
The run really ends when it intersects with the long, straight doubletrack that makes a bee-line for the lift (this section looks like an old overgrown rail grade).
