Ascent Trip Report

Went up Spruceton Trail, nice hike up and only steep for a short section. Lots of mud towards the top, but impressive evergreen forest near the summit. Took the Hunter Mtn Trail to the Devil's Path to Diamond Notch on the way back, which took a bit longer than anticipated. Overall, a great hike!
