We were four on this 4.2 miles hike up Spruce Peak in Central Vermont. The trail condition were a bit icy but nothing microspikes couldn't handle. It was on the widy side at the top of the fire tower.
We trailed down in a little over an hour before heading to the local Irish pub and and made right one time before a band of showers popped in. It was a very pleasant day with great company.
