Copperhead Road is an enjoyable 2-way trail that runs the length of the drainage on the "East" side of Whiskey Run Road. This trail is primarily used as an easy climbing trail to access back to the top of the one-way descent trails and parking area. Riders can also use Copperhead Road to access the two green loop trails Meadow Skipper and Papa Wheelie.

Expect a moderate green climb with a few short punches. It's an easy going downhill with switchbacks, in sloped turns, and grade reversals. Use Copperhead Road to climb back up for more laps on the blue and black descending trails.

Leads to top of Gnome Wrecker, Boot Scoot n' Boogie, and Meadow Skipper trails.
Use Landing Pad Road to access Re-Boot which intersects Copperhead Road.

Lower portion is primarily used as a climbing trails, so use caution when descending as it is not build for high speed pedaling.

Access Info

Copperhead Road can be accessed from the east parking lot on Whiskey Run Road. Look for the trail crossing the end of the parking area.

Do not block trail at parking lot
