Details

Spruce Mountain open space is mostly open and rolling prairie terrain with a primitive Rampart Range roadless area as backdrop just to the west.This trail is a big loop. Hike Southwest on Spruce Mountain Trail taking the upper loop, then down to Eagle Ridge trail and have lunch at the picnic tables at the old grave site. Then return via the Eagle Pass trail. There may be ice so bring traction devices (yaktrax or microspikes).
