This is an excellent length day hike that takes around 5.5 - 6 hours round trip to the Spruce Knob summit and back. There is light bushwhacking for the first mile and typical muddy portions of trail on Huckleberry. None of the land marks are difficult to find but it takes some mental toughness to continue when there seems to be no trail at the beginning of the trek. There is parking on the turnoff to the left.
