Trail Description
About this trail

Spruce Mountain is part of a favorite equestrian park in the middle of Prescott National Forest. The area is generally 15–20 degrees cooler than Phoenix and Tucson, and bikers from points south show up all summer in droves to escape the oven-like heat. But we all know that the whole point of going up is to come down. Spruce Mountain is one of those blessed rarities: The uphill grind is shorter than the downhill back to your car. And what a downhill run it is! When it isn’t pristinely groomed singletrack, the trail is crisscrossed with roots, rock outcroppings, some sand, and erosion-control logs so high and frequent the trail looks like a staircase. This roller-coaster ride continues for five-and-a-half miles, all of it demanding your utmost attention at all times.

Review: 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
