Description

Parking for this trail is on the right, shortly after the Western Summit House. This trail follows white blazes with red dots. The trail climbs moderately, then climbs over a few switchbacks to the junction with the Sunset Rock Spur. Sunset Rock Spur provides an alternative to the direct route. The main trail turns right, at this junction.

The trail loops around to the upper terminus of the Sunset Rock Spur. It continues to the right and follows the ridge. The trail winds its way over and around slabs of schist. When the trail passes beneath the powerlines, you're standing directly above the Hoosac Tunnel. According to the blazes, the trail ends at the spur to the summit of Spruce Peak.
