Description

After a short climb right out of the parking lot, the trail winds through the trees to the start of the switchbacks and a short steep climb up to Armstrong Pass.

The next four miles, however, is good downhill singletrack through the woods. The trail pops out at a small parking area at the top of the Fountain Place Road.
