Description

This is the main trail into the Happy Jack trail system from the Summit trailhead Parking area. A short fairly easy climb to the highest point of the trail offers a great view of Happy Jack (especially in the fall). Then it's a pretty easy descent (not too steep with only minor rocky and rooty sections) all the way to the Headquarters parking area.

Make sure you have a good idea were you're headed, or bring the Hiking Project mobile app with you, as this trail intersects with other trails.
