Prospect Rock Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"From the parking area on VT 11/30, cross the road, ascend the highway bank, and enter the woods (also a boulder field). Hike nearly half a mile, and cross a stream and then the old abandoned overgrown VT 30. Hike another 0.25 mile, cross another stream, and begin to ascend steeply. Almost 1 mile after beginning your hike, you will pass two vistas (one to the south and one to the northwest), reach a ridgetop, and descend a narrow ridge through a hardwood forest.
Hike another 0.9 mile, cross an old woods road and a small brook, and ascend west and then south. At mile 2.4, reach the junction with a side trail that leads a short distance to Spruce Peak (elevation 2,040'). At this side trail, head left along the A.T. another 0.4 mile to the side trail to Spruce Peak Shelter. Water is available from a spring just south of the shelter, which is 0.1 mile off the Trail."
