Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
This is a GREAT ride.  Tons of climbing rewarded with a perfect downhill.  The Armstrong trail section of this ride was awesome. It had great flow and many stunts on the sides that even an expert rider would enjoy.  Intermediate riders will probably opt to avoid most of the jumps and drops.
Would you ride again?
YES.
Any suggestions?
Uses the better part of a day so make sure you have plenty of food and fluids. An early start is advised if there is any chance of thunder showers.  You are extremely exposed for much of the trail.  Don't forget the camera.
