We used this as tracking toward Copper Creek Hut as it was sourced at the lower Snowpark - though we didn’t follow the recording entirely. Mount Tahoma Trails Association runs CC and rents it out. We had a good time snowshoeing and extended by following the Cal trail a bit for a beautiful sunset on Mt Rainier. Road without too much to see but fun company and the hut made it worth it! We tracked about 11.4 (to and from the hut) plus the extension that was 2.7 miles extra. ***Update: I suggested a trail change on this and All Trails granted it and updated the listing. So this is now accurate (and named) Copper Creek now.

We found the trail without problem and it was nicely groomed up to the junction with two other trail heads. We decided to take the overlook trail around instead of continuing on the Copper Creek Hut Trail. It was a nice wide trail, but not groomed (a bit of added challenge after a foot of new snow.) It ends at a beautiful overlook of Mount Rainier. The overlook trail is about five miles from the lower lot round trip.
