      Copper City is a new trail center on BLM land north of Three Forks, Montana. Trails are arranged in a series of nonmotorized, stacked loops. The mining theme of the area is kept alive with trail names and high end but rustic flair that can be seen at the parking lot or in the signage.

      Construction is complete as of 2019 with just some fine tuning for next year, thanks to extremely generous help from the surrounding communities
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Trailhead and Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Turn right onto the Copper City Road, 4.5 miles north of I-90. Continue down the dirt road to an obvious jackleg fenced parking lot.
