Description

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.

Turns have deep-ish loose gravel on the outside, making them more difficult to take at medium to high speeds. 10mi — 1h 45m
