Spruce Mountain
Monroe, MA


Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below. "Summit" photos may in fact not be at the actual summit - but instead at the best nearby vista.

Spruce Hill Trail

I'd looked at Spruce Mountain for years in passing on Route 2, gradually gaining more interest in it. I also looked at the DCR map and wondered if there were any views, being that there wasn't a view symbol on the summit. Unless someone goes up there with a saw, I don't see myself hiking to this peak again.
