Mexico's Copper Canyon Trails

Barranca de Cobre • Batopilas • Urique • Oteros • Candamena • Oteros • Sinforosa • Chinipas

Mexico's Copper Canyon is much more than just one canyon. The vast northwestern Sierra Madre and Sierra Tarahumara include at least 15 major canyons, the homeland of tens of thousands of Tarahumara (Raramuri) Indians, traditional Mexican ranchers, and prospectors. Just a day's travel south of the U.S. border, the Copper Canyon is still remarkably untouched by progress. This is one of America's best, yet least-known regions for hiking, camping, and do-it-yourself adventure.
