“An out and back run starting from 800ft Perpetua down to a 500 year old spruce tree.”— William Lefler
About 1 mile in, cross the road and head down to the campground. At 1.2 miles, you'll briefly enter a campground. Head straight and turn right near the bathrooms to get back on the trail. Soon, you'll need to take a left to get on the Giant Spruce Trail #1365.
The Giant Spruce Trail is easy to follow, just keep to the right at all turns to avoid turning back into the campground.
At the end, you'll see a 550 year old spruce.
Now turn around, and get ready for a quad burner back up to your car.
