Awesome! So fun and Mild hardness!

nice trail, but I'd rate it as heavily trafficked. the parking lot was packed and lots of folks at the summit, tho it was a lovely day so I'm not too surprised.

the trail was easy to follow and was only steep for the last half mile or so. great views from the fire tower. The description in the GMC 50 hikes guidebook says there is an overlook just before the summit but we did not see it, perhaps its over grown?

good views, use bug spray.

Very rocky but a pretty easy hike for a beginner. The views at the top are worth it. It took us about 2 hours round trip.

7/6/17
A nice short hike but kinda buggy so bring some bug repellent. There were some muddy spots along the way but nothing a little step planning couldn't get ya through.
Overall a good day on the trail.

Hiked the trail 7/4/17. The trail had heavy traffic. I've hiked this mountain many times. This is the first time I've seen the trail look a little run down. It's definitely wet with all of the rain. Several areas were quite deep with mud. I used my poles to find the stepping stones so my boots didn't take a beating. Once at the summit, we went into the observation tower. It was very windy today and the tower felt a little unsafe due to higher wind speeds. This is a great hike- lots of steep granite to climb.

We had a great hike up spruce mountain with our kiddos. Even with all the water, the rocks were not slippery. Lots of black flies at the top. Cool caves along the way.
