High Alpine Hiking

Thoughts of summer in the Colorado Rockies conjure up images of beautiful scenery, majestic wildflowers and incredible encounters with wildlife. At Copper, those experiences are magnified as the resortís high alpine environment plays host to all these elements at elevations in excess of 12,000 feet. While visitors are welcome to explore all of Copperís hiking trails on their own, the resortís new Hiking Center, located in the Mountain Adventure Center, offers a variety of free guided hiking trips. A newly established Nature Center at the top of the American Eagle lift also allows guests of the resort the opportunity to get up close and personal with the surrounding environment.

Interpretive Nature Hike - Led by a naturalist, these guided hikes depart each day at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Hikers ride the American Eagle lift up to 11,250 feet before embarking on a 1/2 mile
loop that brings them to the base of Hallelujah Bowl. Here participants can observe pika, marmots, birds, and other wildlife.

Alpine Adventure Hike - Offered Mondays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to approximately 2:30 p.m., hikers explore Copperís alpine environment as they make their way from the top of the American Eagle lift to the top of Copper Peak, an elevation of 12,444 feet.

Nature Detectives - Kids can join a Copper Naturalist every Tuesday and Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in search of clues left by animals. Use of hand lenses and binoculars are available to help in the search. This hike is designed for kids ages 5-10 who are joined by an adult.

Village Discovery Hike - For those looking for a mellow hike, every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. groups depart the Hiking Center and take guided walks through The Village at Copper. Hikers will learn about the plants, animals, and people who make up Copperís past, present and future.

Fireside Talks - Curious visitors join a Copper Naturalist for informative and entertaining weekly talks by the fire circle at West Lake. Visit with Smoky the Bear, experience the gold rush days, or learn about elk, mountain lions, and other indigenous wildlife. Fireside talks are held every Friday from 7:00 p.m. Ė 8:00 p.m. Topics vary each week.
