Spruce River Highlands Trail
Everything Leaves a Track
Glaciers have left behind great hills and valleys with panoramic views! Wildflowers and fall colours are especially alluring.
Climb a tower that rises 10 metres above a hilltop and enjoy a spectacular vista of the Spruce River. Continue clockwise over rollercoaster terrain to a ridge with Anglin Lake in the distance. Soon the trail branches; stay to the right. Open slopes give way to level landscape that may have wet spots. At the end of the loop keep left to return home.
