Description

From the Spence Mountain trailhead off of Highway 140, the trail starts right behind the kiosk. At Junction 1, (about 200 meters after the kiosk), stay right. The trail climbs gradually and is pretty mellow all the way up to the summit of Spence Mountain. A couple of short, doable rock gardens are present.

On the way to the summit, the trail crosses old logging roads three or four times. The trail continues on the other side of the road each time, so navigation should not be an issue. There are also signs at most intersections. Once you've reached the high point, take a short detour and check out the actual summit of Spence Mountain before heading down.

Pretty good climb. Some loose rocks that may take you off your stride. The last mile was the worst of the climb. It turned into a less gradual climb. 5.7mi

A great mellow climb with periodic rock sections to test your technical climbing skills. Great views throughout and rewarding descents from the top. Also an awesome descent from the summit back down this trail. Worth riding both directions. A great loop is up South Ridge, down North Ridge, back to the summit via the climb to Captain Jack, then down South Ridge. Oct 27, 2018
