A long day hike or backpack from Happy Valley to the summit of Rincon Peak, 8.1 miles one way.
This popular hike climbs from Happy Valley on the east side of the Rincon Mountains to the summit of Rincon Peak. The Miller Creek portion of the trail is closed to horses. Horse parties bound for Rincon Peak can follow the Turkey Creek Trail to the crest of the range and then follow the Heartbreak Ridge Trail westward to link up with the Rincon Peak Trail at Happy Valley Saddle. Horse users must tether their horses about 0.5 mile short of the summit, because the final pitch is extremely steep and vulnerable to erosion.
