A section of the valley during the Fall of Reach.

Longhorn Valley was a geographical location in the Military Wilderness Training Preserve within the Highland Mountains of the planet Reach. It was a sloped region ten kilometers across that contained a thick forest of Douglas firs and trampled fields. The Big Horn River ran through the middle of the valley.


During their training, the SPARTAN-IIs became familiar with the valley during their many training exercises in the area.

On July 23rd, 2552, the night of the initial Covenant incursion, the UNSC Army fireteam 3 Charlie was on patrol in the valley. They were then sent to investigate a disturbance at the Visegrad Relay.[1]

During the Fall of Reach on August 30th, the valley was occupied by the Covenant, who built large defensive encampments in preparation for excavating the Forerunner complex beneath Menachite Mountain.[2] The valley was scorched when a team of SPARTANs used a Fury Tactical Nuclear Weapon to destroy a Covenant cruiser that was holding position overhead. The valley was presumably glassed.
