5.93 miles of hiking • 2750' elevation gain •

The ONP entrance to Staircase remains closed due to construction so a lot of people were parking near the Copper Creek TH to enter the park via the Shady Lane Trail. As usual little traffic on the Copper Creek Trail which was snow free. Completed the upper loop counter clock wise where in typical PNW weather it was nice & sunny on the climb up and breezy, cold with sleet/snow at the top.
