Spruce Meadows Open Space and Trail


Open Space Enjoyment and Social Distancing

As you anticipate an enjoyable day on Douglas County Open Space properties, please be aware that some trails, due to the location and terrain, have limited space for remaining socially distant from those other than in your immediate party. Please be aware when you encounter these circumstances, adjust accordingly, and help keep our community safe by adhering to
COVID-19 social distancing requirements.


Spruce Meadows is a long-distance recreator’s dream.  The terrain is relatively flat and the trail is 8.5-miles long, with wide-open views of adjacent mountains, buttes, and the Greenland area.  The parking lot is ideal for horse trailers as riders can access Spruce Mountain Open Space.  Cattle grazing occurs on the property from May 1 through Sept. 15.
