Allmusic.com gave Happy Trails a 5 star review:

Without question, this follow-up to Quicksilver Messenger Service’s self-titled debut release is the most accurate in portraying the band on vinyl in the same light as the group’s critically and enthusiastically acclaimed live performances…. The perpetually inventive chops of QMS are what is truly on display here. The musicians’ unmitigated instrumental prowess and practically psychic interaction allow them to seamlessly weave into and back out of the main theme. Yet all the while, each player takes center stage for uncompromising solos. …The brief title track, a cover of Roy Rogers and Dale Evans’ “Happy Trails,” seems almost insignificant in the wake of such virtuoso playing. It clears the sonic palette and also bids adieu to this particular fab foursome of psychedelia.
