The path we followed was Copper Mine Trailhead and parking lot to Appalachian Trail to Garvey Springs Trailhead back to Douglas parking lot. Decent little summer hike with an easy-moderate uphill path to the AT and then a few hours hiking along a rocky ridge then back down another rocky path to a large expanse of ferns. A couple of lookout points with the large pile of rocks being the best viewpoint. Recorded time says 3.5 hours. Douglas trailhead has a good parking lot and actual bathrooms. Old Mine Rd is closed during the winter so this is a seasonal location.
