Snowy, Icy: Trail is packed snow, can be done without snowshoes. Off trail, I was sinking to my knees in places without snowshoes. History

Getting forecast...

Spruce Meadows is a perfect beginner route for someone looking for a slightly longer option.

Description

The Spruce Meadows Trail winds through grassy meadows between Greenland Open Space and Spruce Mountain. With outstanding views of the surrounding buttes, Pikes Peak, Spruce Mountain and the Rampart Range, this easy trail offers something for everyone! The trail crosses over (or under) Spruce Mountain Road twice at marked crossings, and crosses over Noe Road twice before looping back to the parking area.

Flora & Fauna

The Spruce Meadows Trail winds through rolling fields of grasses and wildflowers. Keep an eye out as rattlesnakes and coyotes make Spruce Meadows home.
