Come prepared with layers, gaiters, poles and all protection needed from possible wind, Pace will be moderate not casual.

The trail follows Peru Creek Road up the Peru Creek drainage on a steady ascent from the trailhead past several private homes.
After approximately 0.5 miles, Morgan Peak comes into view on the right and soon thereafter Copper Mountain is visible to your left across the valley.
Another 0.5 miles further on you will come to an overhead power line and cross Peru Creek itself.
Approximately 0.6 miles past Peru Creek and you will see Lenawee Trail (FDT 34) to the left. Travel another 0.5 miles and Chihuahua Gulch Road (FDR 263) will be on the left.
Travel approximately 1.6 miles further from here we may be able to see the Pennsylvania Mine that is right up Cinnamon Gulch 0.4 miles.


A good day for all. We had 2 brand new members - their first trip. All members were prepared for the cold. We traveled along the road until we got to the meadow with a ranch style wood fence for a lunch break. 15 degrees for the high but hardly any wind and some sun. We started on the trailhead about 9:45, lunch at noon, back to the cars by 1:45. Could easily make this a longer trip.
Half the group saw 4 moose close to the trail.
