Boucle du Lac Spruce

Parc d'environnement naturel de Sutton

The ideal loop for family, as it has an interpretation area and a nice small lake (with a shelter). One of the most popular trails is accessible year-round. The longest part is a loop that passes by the lake, and two ponds... The climb to Spruce Lake features 10 interpretation panels inviting you to discover the adventures of the glacial boulder, characteristics of various species of trees, and the inhabitants of the forest. The descent is a one-way via the Round Top trail. Although the terrain is rather rough, this trail is often taken by young hikers, because of its short distance.
