Mountain Biking Armstrong Pass (Armstrong Connector)
#57 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California
Ridden as a shuttle or accessed from the Tahoe Rim Trail, this trail is fun!! It is typically ridden in one direction, beginning with a climb to the top of the pass, and then it is downhill from there. It has some technical sections and fun granite rock, with beautiful meadows at the end.

The trail can be accessed by parking off Hwy 89 near Luther Pass and ridden to by way of dirt road or it can be shuttled to.
Drove up Horse Meadow off of Hwy 89. Did the climb to the top of the pass where the trail crosses TRT. Then the long downhill on Armstrong, Armstrong Connector, Corral, and Railroad back home. Nice downhill run - and with a shuttle drop off, not a bad trade: 1 mile of uphill for 12 miles of downhill.Thank |
