Happy Hour is mainly a 24' groomed fat bike trail that runs from Mike Harris to WY/ID state line. The trail offers a picturesque ski through spruce-fir forest along Trail Creek. It is not common to see people, unless travelling on the weekend. The trail is groomed by Caribou-Targhee US Forest Service team.

NOTE: Dogs are not allowed on this trail from Dec 1st to April 15th.

The trail can be biked or classic cross-country skied as an "out-and-back", and can be connected to “Rush Hour” (summertime mtn. bike trail) if you cross the highway at WY22 /ID 33 state line parking lot.

Begin on the summer gravel campground road, cross Harris Creek to the south and travel southeast along Trail Creek. At the bend in the campground road (mile 0.3) continue southeast along Trail Creek following a marked summer trail (an old forest 2-track). About 1.25 miles in the trail starts to climb at a moderate rate up an unnamed side drainage. The max. gradient is 10% lasting only about 15 yards. Just before the descent to the state line parking lot (about mile 1.75) you come out onto a ridge and have nice views south towards the flanks of Mt. Oliver.

The trail travels from the Mike Harris TH to Wyoming stateline. At this point the grooming ends but a recently constructed bridge provides passage over trail creek and the route could continue along trail creek and Hwy 22 to Trail Creek CG. An underpass is slated for construction at this location during the summer of 2022 and may provide a connection to the newly constructed Centennial Pathway.
