I recently visited the Happy Valley Tract of the York Regional Forest, south of Pottageville, on the west side of King's 7th Concession. It is a well-established hiking trail of approximately 1 kilometre, with a lookout high on a knoll with a great view over western King Township. The loop trail is well-maintained and the footing is good. A sign at the entrance asks users to allow space for physical distancing due to Covid 19.
There is a bulletin board with a trail map and information about things to look for along the way. You are advised to keep dogs on a leash at all times. There is off-road parking for several vehicles
The view from the lookout knoll has two log beam benchs for those wanting to sit and contemplate what nature has to offer. A look up may allow you to see a Turkey Vulture (right) soaring above the King Ridge. Trail photos will appear in another blog a few days from now.
More photos tomorrow...
if you wish.
