Trail Alert for Copper Mine Falls Trail (1 May 2018):

The major storms which impacted this area over the winter have caused significant damage to this trail. A large section leading to the falls has been washed out and is no longer passable. OBIEC intends to work to restore this popular trail, but as a non-profit volunteer organization funded by donations, we cannot set a timescale as to the repairs. We apologize for any inconvenience.
