Description

If you came up the steep Horse Meadows Trail #21566 all the slogging you did to get to the top of the Armstrong Pass Trail #18E09 was worth it. The next 4.0 miles is ripping good singletrack through the woods. Then you pop-out at a small parking area at the top of the Fountain Place Road and hit the Armstrong Connector #18E09A.

Lots of fun. For those of us who live at sea level, even easy stuff seems difficult at 9k feet.
