Copper Creek Trail #876

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

The Copper Creek Trail is a short but steep jaunt up Copper Ridge above Lake Cushman.

This is a steep trail that forms a short loop at the ridge top. At 0.2 miles the trail passes the Brown Mule mine site, then continues to follow Copper Creek canyon to the abandoned Apex Mine site at 1.4 miles. At 1.3 miles the trail branches and ascends to the ridge crest separating Copper and Elk Creek watersheds. At 1.9 miles the trail branches again, with both branches of the trail leading to the ridge crest. A “way trail” along the ridge connects these two branches to form a loop (the ridge leads toward Timber Mountain and Lightning Peak). The trail begins at Forest Service Road 2451.
