Featuring four waterfalls, one of which is near the end of the trail, the Copperfield crosses a ridge above a deep canyon housing both Copperfield and Walnut Creeks. While the canyon walls are about 150 feet high, the narrow, 10-foot width of the ridge trail captures your attention as you and Fido traverse it in view of the creeks below. Several overlooks afford views of small ponds, and while there is a short section of sidewalk hiking, the area you pass through is an oasis.
With multiple bodies of water available, it would be a shame if the pooch doesn't get a short, refreshing dip, especially in the summer. If getting into the water isn't appealing to you or the pup, be reassured knowing that each water crossing is equipped with a footbridge or stepping stones so your and Fido's feet will stay dry.
Along the trail, you won't see much in the way of wildlife, but furbulously barktiful wildflowers will capture your eye and add a shot of color to all the green and brown of the trail, which is studded with rocks amidst the hard-packed soil. There also aren't any amenities, so be sure to bring any essentials, such as water to share, and clean-up bags!
It's worth a bit of digging to find the Copperfield Trail, but you'll be glad you grabbed a leash and your pupster and headed on over there!
