Trail Description
About this trail
Armstrong is a 3-mile climb that begins near the Crescent Lift and climbs all the way up to Ham and the Mid-Mountain trail. While most of the trails at PCMR are two-way trails, Armstrong is an uphill-only trail. That means that if you're climbing you don't have to worry about dodging riders who are screaming down the mountain, making this the perfect start to a big loop ride.

Review: Visiting PC from TN and everyone said not to miss riding up this trail. Well - it's a cool trail and I'm glad I rode it BUT- we rode it on a Monday in mid-Sept and still ran into several hikers i.e. cant imagine the hassle of trying to ride it on a weekend or during a more busy season. As it is a tremendous challenge in so far as the elevation gained - there is nothing technical going up. You only need a set of good lungs and to expect a good workout. We are old and intermediate mountain bikers at best so this was challenging. Great views -.

Review: Nice climb in PC, nice escape from the heat in SLC. It is uphill only but watch out for rogue hikers.
