The ride should be done in a clockwise direction in order to enjoy the climbing only trails for the massive ascent.
Need to Know
The trails are located at altitude above high mountain deserts. Bring plenty of water, food and clothing and be prepared for large temperature fluctuations and variable conditions throughout.
There are multiple intersections along the route that can lead into other drainages or even other towns. Have a map, have a plan and be prepared for a long day out.
Armstrong is steady up but a fairly easy pedal while Pine Cone will test you a bit. The punchiest parts come right before topping out on the Wasatch Crest.
Bask in the awesome views to west from the Crest. Ride north along a generally descending route with a few little climbs here and there.
These are in the form of a series of red dirt bluffs called the Fakies.
After the technical rock ridge, keep descending to the Dog Lake intersection. Stay right for a short easy climb.
After this climb, continue to stay left at the intersections that lead to view points on the ridge until arriving at a big meadow. Here a Y intersection will take users back to Park City or into Salt Lake City. Staying right into Park City is the only way to go. There is a big brown sign on the left hand trail saying No Bikes Allowed.
From the meadow intersection, the trail continues to descend with a short climb on the Crest Connector trail to the Mid Mountain Trail intersection. Bear left here and continue down to Ambush.
Follow Ambush to the end and bear left to ride out to Hwy 224, pedaling back to the beginning of the ride.
