When attending the last metabolism class of the semester (or ever) became optional yesterday, my good friend from school Krista and I decided to hike Spruce Mountain. Located just outside Saratoga in Corinth, it was a quick one hour drive from Troy.
The trail itself was great-not too rocky and not too steep. It would be great for beginners!
In about 36 minutes we were at the summit. Unfortunately there are no views unless you climb the tower.
I think the tower itself is fairly new. There are windows inside that provide protection from the wind.
It was a great little hike!
