This 3.5-mile walk begins on a bark dust trail near the Happy Valley Library. It connects to a natural trail that goes through woods near Sieben Creek and then into older neighborhoods. From there we will enter the Taralon Community to explore a network of gravel and paved paths, cross wooden bridges, and pass wetlands on this 97-acre development. Then we will head uphill to the Happy Valley Sculpture Garden at City Hall, before returning downhill to the library.

  • Round-trip travel: 19 miles
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Elevation gain: Minimal
  • Suggested donation per hiker: $2

For lunch we will walk uphill from the library for a few blocks to Happy Valley Station, an enclosed eating area surrounded by 19 food carts. You may purchase your lunch from a food cart or bring one from home to eat in the enclosed pavilion. Good walking shoes or hiking boots are recommended, as the natural trails can be muddy.
