Description

From the Spruce Creek trailhead climb to the end of Spruce Creek Road (approximately 2 miles) to a small, upper trailhead parking area. The Spruce Creek Trail begins on the left side of the parking area.

Pass both the Burro Trail and Wheeler Trail intersections along the way.

Take a left onto the Spruce Creek Trail, crossing the Wheeler Trail again after 1/2 mile at a four-way intersection. There will be a large, picturesque meadow on the left offering views of Continental Falls. This is a good place for a rest.

Continue downhill on Spruce Creek Trail for a mile to a narrow bridge over Spruce Creek. The descent is very rooty, and can be exceptionally dangerous when wet. After crossing the creek, Spruce Creek Trail is more rolling and eventually terminates at the Spruce Creek trailhead parking lot.
