The hike to Copper Canyon via Buckhorn Campground is on the Buckhart Trail which makes a moderate decent through a dry pine forest to Copper Creek and the Pacific Crest Trail. Here you have the option of returning to the campground, relaxing near the stream, or continuing on the Buckhart Trail for a short distance to a ridge with excellent views toward Burkhart Saddle. There is also a nice campsite near the intersection of the Burkhart Trail and the PCT.
