Difficulty: Moderate Distance: 12 miles

This is a trail with access to Cop­per Lake. Cop­per Lake has oppor­tu­ni­ties for Lake Trout, Grayling, and Bur­bot fish­ing. The first 2.5 miles are suit­able for hik­ing, then the trail crosss­es Tana­da Creek, which can be high and fast, and trail con­di­tions deteriorate. 

Walk in pub­lic fish­ing access to Sil­ver Lake and Van Lake; you’ll find won­der­ful scenery and good rain­bow trout fish­ing in both lakes.

MP 27.8, Nabesna Rd. This is now called the Kendesnii Camp­ground. This is now a devel­oped camp­ground with 10 sites, with pic­nic tables, fire rings, trails, and restrooms. Kendesnii Camp­ground is a great place to fish and view wildlife. A hie of about a half mile to the south and over the ridge will take you to Jack Lake and more beau­ti­ful views of the Wrangell Mountains.

Mile 21.8 Nabesna Road. This rest area has a pic­nic table and vault toi­let, and looks out over a lake with a view of the Wrangell Mountains.

This is a great site to take a break for some wildlife view­ing or bird watch­ing. There are views of wet­lands, a small lake, and bore­al for­est. Moose are often seen here and cari­bou migrate through this area in the spring and fall. Dur­ing spring and sum­mer, look for nest­ing ducks and trum­peter swans. Vault toilets.
