Happy Camp’s Town Trail

May 24, 2007

Happy Camp

By Linda Martin

It is surprising how many people you’ll meet on Happy Camp’s Town Trail. When we hike the trail, we nearly always run into someone. It may be Forest Service employees getting into shape for backwoods exertion, teachers, friends, or teenagers. The funniest was when two horses came up the trail complete with riders. Our dog had never seen a horse before and was so frightened he hid behind us.

It takes me almost an hour to get to the end of the trail – all uphill. When I arrive, there’s a picnic table to sit at and the beautiful view of Happy Camp to look at. It is well-worth the climb.

To get to the Town Trail, cross the Elk Creek Bridge to the south side of the Klamath River in Happy Camp. It is about a mile to the Town Trail sign on Elk Creek Road where you can park and start hiking. Hiking is a great way to lose weight and stay in shape. Take lots of water, especially on hot summer days.


  1. Soon I would like to hike
    the town Trail. I have lived
    in Happy Camp 7 months. However , I have not hiked
    up the town trail yet.
    Thanks for the idea.
