This is a shady trail through an older-growth forest. The main features of the trail are the remains of an old gold and copper mine. Prospectors were first lured here after they found gold in quartz veins in 1891. A commercial mine, however, only extracted copper ore 66. Coppermine Trail here during its operation from 1891 to 1910. Some pieces of quartz and tiny amounts of copper can be found in the tailings. Only the tailings and an old steam boiler remain today. The returning part of the trail features some fine views across the Bay of Fundy. Trail Condition: dry, rooty.

Our second day hike was at CopperMine Trail (It was another beautiful day in Fundy National Park! This trail is very well maintained. There is a moderate ascent for about 1.5 km, then it starts the decent towards the great vistas and views of the Bay of Fundy along the cliff walls. Several nice creeks along the way.
