Follow a steep trail alongside crashing Copper Creek through a deep and narrow ravine. Explore a couple of old mine sites, and then continue onward through primeval forest to a high and narrow shoulder of Lightning Peak. Built originally in 1915 by prospectors searching for copper and manganese, this long-abandoned Trail No. 876 was rebuilt in the early 2000s by volunteers. Integrating some of the original tread, the new trail is just as steep and challenging as the original. It’s just as wild and beautiful too.
