[R] clustering: single linkage path in minimum spanning tree

My understanding is that single linkage clustering is equivalent to 
finding the minimum spanning tree. Hclust works very nicely for finding 
the clusters but I am unable to find enough information in its output to 
construct the minimum spanning tree.  In particular, I want to find a 
minimum spanning tree path between two items in the tree.  Is this 
possible with hclust or is there another package that I should be using?

Thanks for your help!
