Details

Come show off your new outdoors toys while also working off all the cookies. Spruce Mountain is a pleasant, easier hike. But don't be fooled; it's winter and icy. Much of the trail is south facing, but some sections are north facing so expect cold, ice, and snow. Please bring traction for shoes (YakTraks, Microspikes, etc.). And it is cold, so layer up! 



Any people and dog friendly dogs are also welcome to join (hopefully they didn't eat too many cookies). Leashes are required on this trail for the pups.



Given this trailhead gets quite busy, we will have an optional carpool from Colorado Springs, meeting at 7:45 at the Woodmen Park'n'Ride: Woodmen Park & Ride, 6800 Corporate Dr, Colorado Springs, CO 80919. Please let me know if you intend to join the carpool so we do not leave you behind.
