      The Happy Creek Trail System is a series of connecting singletrack trails with a wide range of options for all skill levels. Rolling terrain and an interesting mix of roots, sidehills, climbs, stunts, boardwalks and viewpoints make up the signature trails of this area.

      Most intersections have maps or markers but it is easy to get lost or disoriented. Cougars and bears are sighted every year, bring bear spray. Watch out for dog walkers and trail runners, use extreme etiquette and slow speeds on the gravel town trails and boardwalks which are popular with families, photographers, nature watchers etc.

      E-BIKES: for information on the use of e-bikes within Town limits contact the Town Of Hinton Bylaw department for clarification https://www.hinton.ca/119/Bylaw-Services (780-865-6009)

      2021 UPDATE: The Trans Mountain pipeline project is currently under construction and intersects many of the main trail arteries. The pipeline sections are usually taped off and clear, prepare for closures or disruptions. Do not trespass and use caution if crossing the pipeline.
