Armour Mountain Trail Description

Hiking the Armour Mountain Trail is a great half-day hiking option that will take you to the summit of this small mountain for some amazing views over the surrounding landscape. The trail sets out from the side of the road and makes its way up the ATV track to the south before meeting up with a junction. Take the path to the left and continue along the gradual climb through stretches of beautiful forest and exposed hillside. When you reach another junction in the trail, keep left to begin the steeper portion of the hike towards the summit. Once there, you will have an amazing view looking over the town of Barriere and the surrounding rolling hills. After taking in the views, head back downhill and follow the trail to the left for an alternate route to the parking area below.
