De Pencier Bluffs and the Upper Perimeter Route are both relatively unknown and lightly traveled; a bit unfortunate as this duo offers so much. This hike begins on the Old Cabin trail across from the parking lot and then continues on to the Perimeter Trail. But the real adventure starts when you turn off onto the Upper Perimeter Route. This is a completely unmaintained and unsanctioned route. There are at least thirty large trees that have fallen across the trail, safety signs laying smashed on the ground, and a broken but usable bridge. The trail also becomes very steep as you approach De Pencier Bluffs. However, none of this should be taken as a negative. Anybody who enjoys getting off the beaten path will love this trail. Please note that the city park sign pole now calls the Upper Perimeter Route the Dead End trail; probably to discourage casual hikers. The Bluffs at the end are huge and you could spend 30 minutes just exploring the top. The views of the city to the South as well as Mount Baker are amazing as you would expect. But even more impressive are the views of the mountain ranges to the North and East making this a great hike for photographers.

Great trail, went today and there was a ton of snow but trail decently packed down. Definitely recommend snowshoes or skis as we came across a few hikers sinking waist deep into the trail at times. Quite snowy, foggy, and a little freezing rainy today. But made for a beautiful and very quiet hike. Snow is probably 1.5 m deep. Watch out for big heavy snow falling from the trees. My girlfriend almost got buried when one fell on her. Be prepared when you go (compass, map, emergency clothing and shelter, water, food, headlamps etc).
