“One of the coolest trails I have ever been on.
By ebduda in June, 2015
All the history of the mining belt region of is right there. The path is very smooth asphalt and in very good condition. The views on this trail are simply awesome as you have views the the two largest peaks in Colorado. We have a second home at Copper Mountain Ski resort and this trail is a must do for me and my family every year.”
