Ferron is the base camp for this trip and there are is camping at Millsite State Park, and lodging at Big Mountain Lodge. We have stayed in both places. There is a real grocery store in town and two places to buy gas. Food is available at the Big Mountain Lodge, the Grub Box, and a light menu at the Freckled Cow.
This trail is open to all types of vehicles and it is common to see dirt bikes, adventure bikes, atvs, utvs, and full size jeeps on this route. If you travel from Ferron on this route, you need to have a street legal machine.
This trail will be flat desert dirt and slickrock that winds down into the bottoms of draws and back on to the tops, the route below I-70 has quite a few twists and turns. You will be traveling along many dry washes. Keep an eye out as if a substantial rain comes, they won’t be dry. Keep an eye on high ground you can get to.
This trail does have direction signs at the major intersections, but there are few carbonite route posts along the way and many side spurs that could get you off track. This can be alleviated by downloading this route and having a device with you, even if it is just stored on your phone. (We recommend the Gaia app downloaded onto your phone).

Copper globe is a perfect family day is the desert. The route is challenging enough that you won’t get bored making the trip, and secure enough that mom won’t be worried about the kids. The terrain itself is worth it, but there are lots of other discoveries to make the trip one for the memory books. Along the it is not uncommon to see antelope and you might see Rocky Mountain Sheep, I have seen evidence of wild burros below I 70 as well. If you see them, get you pictures from the machine as they don’t know what to make of a machine. As soon as you get off, they sense a predator and off they will go.

Plan to take time at the Copper Globe Mine. There are lots of old artifacts around the mine and a good learning moment for young and old alike. Pack lots of water! (twice what you think you will need) and ample sunscreen. Brimmed hats are good as well (there is very little shade out there.
