This is an easy hike on a paved trail, which makes it great for wetter months when non-paved trails are muddy, or if you happen to be pushing a stroller as I was. If you have any interest in the century long history of the Copper mining and smelter in this area, don't miss this easy two mile walk. The historic landmarks and ruins provide incredible details. Dogs welcome. Great for runners. No motorized vehicles.
