The guided horseback rides occasionally use Lower Spruce Road. If you encounter a tour, do not make any sudden movements and follow the directions from the guide.

Before starting your run, stop by the Mountain Adventure Center in the village for a backcountry trail map and current trail updates.

Description

Lower Spruce Road is an improved fire road with varying sized gravel and a few large rocks embedded into the tread. After running Fire Tower Trail to the river, take Lower Spruce Road to the south on Upper Spruce Road back to Powder Puff or North West Ridge Road. From the Shavers Fork River, Lower Spruce Road is a steady climb back up the mountain.
