Spruce Peak is nestled among the greens-between Spruce, Mansfield, Sterling and Madonna peaks – surrounded by 2,000 acres of protected and conserved wilderness. The intimate community provides abundant ways to connect with these majestic surroundings. From a dedicated trail network, to a golf course that traverses the mountain sides and stream basins, Spruce Peak is a place where we are inspired by our surroundings, and in turn, we look to protect our environment at every opportunity.
