Mountain bikers may only bike uphill on this trail. Other users may use it in either direction.

Description

The Armstrong Trail is a relatively new, multi-use trail. Its popularity is increasing because it helps spread out traffic on the mountain and improves users' experiences. Armstrong is a directional trail for bikers (uphill only) but hikers can go up or down.

Armstrong climbs at a remarkably constant, moderate grade that makes the uphill pretty enjoyable. To start, the trail contours around the hillside mostly shaded by aspen trees. After passing the base of the King Con chairlift, the serious switchbacking begins, although this ascent feels gentler than the Spiro Trail.

Armstrong makes major connections with a number of trails including the Mid Mountain Trail. To reach the start of the Armstrong Trail, either take the Silver Spur trail from the ski area base or head through the Silver Star and golf course neighborhood to where the Spiro Trail and Armstrong trails hit Crescent Road.
