I recently visited the Coppereid Site at White Cloud Canyon out of Fallon, NV. I have been told that the town had two sections, the mining section that was built at the bottom of the canyon and washed out when the mine flooded and the residential section which was built further of the mountain. Is there a road to the upper residential section or to the mine its-self?

The ruins at the mouth of the canyon are that of White Cloud City, which predate Copperied.

When I was last there in 2001, the road was completely obliterated to Copperied and the creekside growth was too thick to convieniently tackle.
