Colorado › Spruce Mountain Open Space Trailhead
Added by Billy DiMirra
This is a great hike right outside of Colorado Springs that boasts great views of the front range.
Spruce mountain is a 5.5 mile loop outside of Colorado Springs near Palmer lake. The hike is a pretty easy one, that has some great views of the Front Range including peak a boo views of Pikes Peak. Starting at the Trailhead, you can either take the right or left trail which will take you to the top of the bluff overlooking the valley. Once at the top there are plenty of spots to catch views of the valleys and mountains.
