Trail shared by Mikhaila Redovian

A scenic fire road with a 1,000 foot climb.

Description

While this trail doesn't offer anything too technical, it is an effective 1,000 foot climb to connect the "upper trails" with Happy Valley. The surface of the road is loose gravel, which makes climbing a bit of a challenge at times. This is a great choice if the trails are overly soggy or if you just want a longish hike through the woods.

There is nice scenery along the way with mountain views, lake views, and plenty of wildlife.
