This section of the Trans Canada Trail runs from Spruston Road to Timberland Lake.
The trail is half single track near the Spruston Road end, then turns into logging road. It's well signed. Some of the signs can be tough to see in the trees though so keep a lookout at logging road forks to make sure you are the right track.
Note: There's no bridge over the Nanaimo River right now.

Take Spruston Road off the highway near Cassidy. You can only access from the southbound lane on the highway. Drive 8km along Spruston Road until you get to the Trans Canada Trail signs on the left. There is a pullout with multiple trails leading off into the woods.
