Spruce Mountain is located in LR Jones State Forest, the oldest State Forest in Vermont. The 2.2 mile trail to the summit of Spruce Mountain, a 3,037 foot peak, climbs moderately as it passes through hardwood forests. As it approaches and goes through spruce and fir forest, it becomes rocker and steeper.
At the top, there is a climbable fire tower that offers a 360° view of the surrounding area.
For more information on the trail or the L.R. Jones State Forest, visit the Vermont State Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation online, or contact:
