Spruceton Trail is a 7.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Hunter, NY. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for hiking.
Wonderful wide trail that goes up to the Hunter fire tower. Mild incline the entire first half then steep incline for around a mile & then the top is flat. Still was a little snow at the top but easy without any snow gear. One warning, in the first 1/2 mile we spotted a copperhead that crossed the trail right in front of us. Watch out for them in the leaf piles!
