Downstream of Copper River bridge is a nice loop that borders the 2 rivers and private property. Multiple trails zig-zag through the center of the red trail track. Look for waypoints indicating trail junctions and nice sandy beaches. Approx. time to complete loop with side trails to beaches etc. is 1 hour. Trails are wide and be prepared to share them with vehicle traffic. 1-way trail on upstream side of Copper River bridge leads to a nice rock outcropping viewpoint of the Copper River. Trail starts by following a dyke then follows an overgrown trail before finally you just follow the rocky beach upstream to the end destination (which is easily spotted from a ways off due to the presence of the old bridge pilings). Approx time to bridge and back of 1 hour, 15 minutes.
