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.

      Trail is great. There is a second turn off past the camp, make sure you take the left fork or you will end up at the bottom of the Spruce Lake Trail and you will have to hike-a-bike back up to camp. reporter

      Trail was great. There was a rope tied across a tree at head height. This trail is on private property so maybe people aren't welcome. We turned around. reporter
