Currently closed for restoration but you can still walk around the grounds. We took our dog and she got completely COVERED in ticks so be careful! Trails are really overgrown and in bad shape. Hopefully restoration will finish soon and they'll allow entry into the actual prison and copper mines.

Trail has not been kept up- it was very difficult to find it and continue on it. It starts right next to the big wooden sign in the parking lot. There are stairs that go down the hill.
