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.

Chunks of snow along the way. A foot occasionally went through. Walked often as a result. Great trail to start getting in shape though. No spikes. 8.4mi — 2h 03m
