Spruce Tree House reviews
When we went in March 2021, there were no tours, but the view behind the visitor center was quite good. In fact, it was a lot closer than our other views of Cliff House, Oak House and Square House... more »
Most amazing thing ever! So cool. Allow 3 to 4 hours, walk the trails, they're short. Dont miss anything. This is totally worth it. Wow!! more »
One of the best ruins in the park that have survived and we'll preserved due to the location and how they built these magnificent dwellings. Everything you can possibly find in the area have been well taken care of and protected so we can enjoy what these amazing people were able to accomplish with so little. This as most sites are worth observation. A+
This is one of only 2 houses that you can take a self guided tour of. Unfortunately it was closed during our visit. You can still get nice views of it from the trail head.
