Absolutely breathtaking, must see, must do, Spruce canyon hike.
These pictures do not do it justice.
I'll definitely do it again. There are other trails we can too.
Almost 7 miles and 3 1/2 hours. We could have added another 3 miles, but he had to get back. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. There were parts that were very narrow and at one point walking sideways on a rock. The creek ran along side the whole trail, so you can listen to the water the whole way through. I was in awe of all the beauty of this trail.

Amazing! This hike was breathtaking! Raging creek and waterfalls right next to the trail the entire hike! Definitely coming back for many more adventures on this trail! Where this trail is located you can literally spend all day hiking on all the numerous trails that connect together. Outhouse toilets are awful though, you are better off popping a squat somewhere seriously! Dont forget your adventure pass for parking because you will get fined if you don't have it.

Nice little trail. Very crowded at the beginning, but once you get past the falls, the crowds drops off drastically. A lot of running water at Spruce Grove this time of year. Very shaded. Good place to do an overnight. Camp fires are permitted and there are also stoves at select spots. Pit toilets are pretty bad. I would rather dig a cat hole than use one anyways like regular backpacking.

Previous comments about restrooms and parking are accurate! On a Labor Day weekend Saturday we had to park nearly a mile downhill from Chantry Flats. And beware, you need a parking permit anywhere on that highway. $100 fine. Otherwise a beautiful hike in a shady canyon. That half mile you walk down from Chantry is a killer on the way back out.
