Brockway Mtn is probably the most popular spot near Copper Harbor. Geologically speaking Brockway Mountain is a sister to the north facing cliffs of the Greenstone Ridge. Both formed at about the same time, they are opposite ends of a continuous formation that sank in the middle (called a geosyncline), forming Lake Superior:

If you take state hwy M26 out of Phoenix instead of US41 all the way, then Brockway is an easy and quick diversion (plus Eagle Harbor and Eagle River are cool). Good article but not enough pictures. Here's some more.
