Trailhead / Access
This course description for this course starts at the Spruce Mountain Trailhead parking area rather than the actual Spruce Meadows parking area at Greenland Road. Either trailhead is good for access to this trail however, the Spruce Mountain trailhead is smaller so parking might be tight at high use times.
The Spruce Meadows trailhead starts at a parking lot off of Spruce Meadows Road. Access to the trailhead can be found by taking Spruce Meadows Road from Palmer Lake. County Line Road, Hwy 105 (Perry Park Rd) and Spruce Meadows Road all come together in Palmer Lake just north of the lake. You can also get to the trail head from Greeland Open Space by following Greenland Rd / W Noe Rd west to Spruce Mountain Rd then turning left. If you park at the Greenland Open Space Spruce Meadows trail heads, there are two parking areas. One labeled Greenland Open Space and one a little further west labled Spruce Meadows Open Space. The Greenland Open Space lot has a porta-potty but there is no facilities at the Spruce Meadows trailhead lot.
