A great ride to get away from the summer heat. Spruce Mountain’s starting elevation is about 6300 feet above sea level and climbs to about 7700 feet. This ride is full of beautiful singletrack and awesome views. The 3.3 mile climb to the top is pretty strenuous, with plenty of switchbacks, rocks and roots. The 5.5 mile descent is every bit worth the climb. A ripping singletrack descent among the ponderosa pine forest. I suffer up the climb on my heavy dual suspension just for the descent. The trails are marked fairly well by the forest service. There is a self-pay parking fee in the parking lot of 2 dollars. I think it is 2 dollars? Remember horses have the right of way and there are plenty of them on the weekends. The trails get slippery and muddy during the frequent Monsoon rains in July and August, so watch out
