The hike to Spruce Lake is a nice hike. I have been to this lake before - last year as a matter of fact. For most of the hike I had the trail to myself, I only saw two people at the lake and they were on their way out, so I had some good time to myself at the lake. On the downside this is the hike I lost a GoPro camera I was wearing - someplace very close to the lake. I lost on my final push through some thick scrub to get the lake shore. Other than the lose of the camera it was a great day, perfect weather.
