From the relatively flat Kautz Creek Trail, head into Indian Henry's Hunting Ground. At the junction with the Wonderland Trail, turn south (onto the Wonderland) and hike for about a quarter or a mile and then head cross country to the northeast. Hike through open forest and huckleberry bushes as you make your way to the saddle between Iron and Copper Mountains.

Descend to the saddle and cross a steep grassy slope, cutting back to the right into trees. Look for a steep path that leads up to a flat area below the summit of Copper Mountain.
