Spruce Mountain Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Spruce Mountain is a forested island in the sky rimmed with rock ledges. Views include Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain, the old Greenland Ranch, thousands of acres of protected Douglas County Open Space, and points north to Longs Peak. Numerous view opportunities lie along the south rim, culminating at Windy Point on the southwest end. You can circle the top of Spruce Mountain or drop down and ?nish the hike around the north end of this pleasant mesa between the prairie and the foothills."

Great trail! Easy to find to find the trailhead and the trail was easy to follow along the way. It was a pretty easy trail to navigate and would be a great hike for kids. The views from the loop at the top are awesome. Great hike for the effort.
