There is no designated campsite this night. You are allowed to camp in the backcountry but please respect the environment and practice no impact camping. Pack out what you pack in.

This is the second day of the Backcountry Adventure South Chilcotin trip. After waking up at Hummingbird Lake, make your way to the north end of Spruce Lake to pick up your additional gear (if you decided to do a gear drop). Enjoy the lake and let the heat of the day burn off before making your way up High Trail. Find somewhere to setup camp just below the alpine and Windy Pass.

Windy Pass is a spectacular place to take in the sunset, so if you have extra energy, make your way up to the viewpoint after setting up camp!

Expect this route to take 4-6 hours given how much time is spent at Spruce Lake and hiking your bike up some STEEP sections of High Trail.

A 700 meter section of this trail has been deactivated on the east side of Pearson Pass. The trail now connects to High Trail South at the top of the ridge so there is one trail to the pass in this area. The old trail section is being rehabilitated, so please try and stay off.
