Copper Avenue-plus

We will hike most of the typical Copper Avenue loop, then add some trail to the north. This is a good end-of-day, after-work workout.
Three uphills will get you huffing and puffing.
I hike at what I consider to be a moderate pace.
If you do not carry at least a pint of water, you might wish you had.
Total distance is less than 4 miles. Time, less than 75 minutes.
No exposure. No scrambling.
No dogs, please.
For newcomers who have not tried this trail, you'll find the trailhead where Copper Avenue dead-ends at the foothills, seven-tenths of a mile east of Tramway Boulevard. Park along the sidewalk near the barricade.

    Jim, I am glad I came out yesterday. It was a nice, challenging little hike, great way to end my day. And great views as well. I will try to come out again sometime soon. Nice meeting you all, and thanks for watching my back. Nice group :)

    It's before sunrise today, and the forecast for the time of our hike calls for mid-50s and a light wind out of the northwest. Good hike conditions!

    Like this hike route. Thank you Jim. My clinic that's scheduled for Wednesday should get done early enough for me to make this one.
