While Copper Mountain is your homebase for food, drink, and fun activities, we realize that you have to get out into nature for the best views. Luckily, Copper Mountain has several scenic hikes nearby. Before you head out, make sure that you are fed, hydrated, and have all the tools that you will need on the trail. This includes up to 3 liters of water, plenty of snacks, hiking boots or study footwear and several layers to be prepared for rapidly changing weather.
