Description

Happy Trail in the Pemberton/Mackenzie trail system is one of the most common ways to start a ride, and is often described as one of the best climbing trails you may ever ride.

The trail begins alongside the Lillooet River and switchbacks up the hillside through dense stands of evergreens before terminating at the Waco Connector. From there, a popular ride is to take a right on the Waco Connector, then left onto Nimby, one of the area's classic trails.

From there, you can access other trails like McKenzie Cruise, Cop Killer and 46.

Each offers it's own unique take on the area's renowned slab riding. In addition to Gravel Pit, Happy Trail can be ridden to access Mosquito Lake and popular trails such as Cream Puff, Mission Impossible and Meat Grinder.
