Copper Butte Trail

Copper Butte Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Occupying the transition zones between the Cascades and Rockies, the steppe and interior highlands, the Kettles contain incredible biological diversity.

A hike to the range’s highest summit, 7140-foot Copper Butte, makes for a wonderful introduction to this isolated range. By way of the Marcus trail you’ll traverse old-growth, fire-succession, and subalpine forests, as well as alpine meadows. Especially meadows. Nearly half of the Marcus trail climbs gracefully through some of the largest and most prolific alpine meadows in the entire range. And where there are meadows, there are flowers—a score of varieties and a near-infinite number of blossoms."
