Armstrong Trail is 4 miles of sustained moderate climbing to the Tahoe Rim Trail. The lower section features moderately banked turns, but overall the trail is narrow with good traction and the occasional moderately technical section. From Armstrong Pass, ride south on the TRT to access Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

Access Info

The lower trailhead is at the end of Fountain Place Rd on the south side. The upper trailhead is off the Tahoe Rim Trail at Armstrong Pass.
