This short trail connects Rails to River to Jawbreaker. It is a short descent from Jawbreaker, with two switchbacks. The trail surface is almost entirely a mixture of shale and carefully positioned larger rocks.

When ridden uphill, Copperhead Connector presents two distinct rocky obstacles/sections to negotiate. Continuing upward on Jawbreaker, riders encounter a third (and more difficult) obstacle. These three sections, collectively known as The Three Bears, represent some of the most technically challenging climbing in Lake Fairfax Park.
