Armstrong Canyon Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Pass mines on way to great camp spot in secluded wooded canyon. Wildflowers and dramatic views of lava domes from 8,300 feet. Narrow, tippy shelf road with tight switchbacks. The last half mile is rocky and susceptible to rock slides. Overgrown and brushy in places. Suitable for stock SUVs with low-range gearing."

I really enjoyed the trail. It is not too difficult but becomes very narrow in places between manzanitas and other shrubs eager to pin-stripe your ride. At the top you are rewarded with a phenomenal camping spot under tall pines.
