A long day hike or backpack from Happy Valley to the summit of Rincon Peak. As the trail moves upward, outstanding views unfold to the east. The arid foothills dwindle like ripples in a grassy sea, finally ending in the pastoral basin of Happy Valley. Beyond this grassy bowl, the Little Rincons rise to low, tortured summits that stretch toward the northern horizon. 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, 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.
