Spruce Railroad Trail

Spruce Railroad Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A perfect trail for the whole family, this old railroad grade runs alongside Lake Crescent and is wide enough for even a bike trailer! Everyone can enjoy riding on the dirt road, then advancing to its mountain trail.

With a two-car shuttle, you may choose to continue all the way to the beach along a paved road; otherwise, just make it an out-and-back and enjoy the trail in both directions. This is a very pretty ride and also very popular, especially in the summer."

The description of this trail is somewhat deceiving. It is a beautiful trail, however, not as easy as described. We took our 8 year old (thinking this was a "family" trail)...there's some areas of single track ascent/descent that were not any fun at all for him. There's lots of areas of washout to be careful of...It is a very cool trail though!
