"This is a backpack from Happy Valley to Manning Camp, 10.3 miles one way. This trek combines the Miller Creek Trail with a well-worn path running along Heartbreak Ridge. The route passes Happy Valley Lookout along the way and ends by connecting with the Mica Mountain complex of trails. It provides a rather long but scenic route for travelers who are destined for Manning Camp. There is no water along the route, but there are several fairly dependable springs a short distance away from the trail as it enters the Mica Mountain complex; Manning Camp, at trail’s end, has a permanent supply of water."
