The Trans Canada Trail begins at joins Reesor Lake Campground causeway parking lot. It connects with Reesor Viewpoint and Spruce Coulee Campground. The trail is a moderately strenuous climb to the top of the plateau. There are spectacular views of the surrounding countryside along the trail and from the plateau. The trail then follows an abandoned road before veering off to follow grassland to Reesor Viewpoint. Continuing north, the trail winds through a mix of forest and grassland before emerging at Spruce Coulee Reservoir.
