Spruce Mountain, Prescott

Directions:  From Prescott take Mount Vernon which will eventually lead into Senator Highway.  Go for about 6.8 miles and the trail head is on you left.  The trail number is 307.

Trail Information:  The trail is 9 miles long.  You can go right which is a brutal 5.5 mile ascent, filled with switchbacks and water bars.  It finally reaches the summit of Spruce Mountain.  Descending on the other side is filled with big rocks and more water bars.  Little sandy, nothing that good trail shoes can't stand.
