Park at Burlington Highschool, head away from the lake and go to the right! It's kind of tricky to find from google maps, but it's worth it when you get there! (a little underwhelming but a really awesome piece of Vermont's geological history!)

Awesome trail with lots of pretty views in the snow. Icy close to the end at the falls,, so it was difficult to get a good view at the end, so poles and micro spikes are helpful at that point. Micro spikes were needed at a few crossings of little tributaries to the falls along the way, but not needed for the entire hike. Absolutely stunning in the snow!

Beautiful trail with unique views! Hiked in peak foliage in October and definitely could not beat it! The only issue was that at the top, someone stepped on a beehive, and many people were stung! Mostly children unfortunately. I was stung twice as well. Definitely a cool trail worth seeing, but be wary of what you’re walking on! Great for families aside from the bees!

Good little hike with a nice view from an overlook at one point where you can see both MT Mansfield and camels hump.

Loved this short hike to an old quarry. I did it in winter and there were kids playing ice hockey inside.

It’s a beautiful hike, but once you get past the waterfalls it’s not moderate it’s considered very hard it’s very leggy very rocky and very slippery. It’s more than 2.5 miles to the pond. It’s about 3 miles exactly to the pond . It was 6 miles for this hike . Well worth it but bring good shoes and water !

Windy & cold day. Plenty of snow. Packed trail so small 25” MSR’s worked well. I see they added steps on one spot 2/3 the way up. In winter, with a packed trail, it’s a nice smooth path & can move right along. Always a good outing on Spruce Mt. Appears trail is used a lot year round.

Nice trail, not at all steep for the 1st 2/3, then pitches up. After passing the cabin it’s still a nice trail but even more steep. We were able to slowly ascend this last section with our MSR Lightning Ascent snowshoes with heels lifts up. Coming down we had to slide on our butts. Note that we took the winter route CC ski trail at the bottom.

The conditions are great right now. Packed snow. Only icy at the end near the falls. Completely worth the hike to see the frozen falls.

Great trail for relaxing easy hike. Scenery was beautiful especially return portion along creek. Extent hike a little further to bridge. Worth the extra trek! Trail is currently snow covered with icy areas but very doable.

Day after snowfall the trail was beautiful.

Great hike - best views.

Wonderful winter hike. I was the only one on the trail and it took about 1.5 hours to the peak and back. The overlook was a fantastic reward.

The ice in the cave is not frozen all the way through, but the ice was still frozen enough to make it to the cave. There are definitely patches of thin ice about, though, as my kid fell through one such spot today (he's fine! and the spot was obviously too thin to walk on to an adult).

Excellent trail. Easy conditions to overlook but definitely needed snowshoes on the loop portion. Beautiful views at the overlook and not windy at all except for the peaks.
