Armstrong Cyn in a Toyota Tundra?

Postby J ney » Mon Aug 18, 2014 5:21 pm

Looking to head up Pinchot via Armstrong Cyn but I'm concerned with how narrow the road will be. Has anyone ever done this in a tundra before (without undue scratches and stress)?
I have 4wd but my truck is on the wide side

Found this info J ney:

Richard Carey reports as of August 2013: Turning on the Division Creek Road there
was a temporary sign saying Road Closed Ahead. Driving past the power station it
looked a mess with a lot of work going on. I later realized it was from storm damage.
Up ahead water trucks were dumping water on the newly graded road. It didn't look
good and near the end I talked to a backhoe driver who was winding down for the day.
He said the road to Scotty's Spring was wiped out by a recent storm. He suggested I
drive up to the end and see for myself. Yes, it was a mess. A huge torrent must have
come down Division Creek. This is just before the road makes a turn north to go up
the slopes. He said they would fix it to the spring and I asked about further up, but
I am not sure he understood my question so I don't know if they are going to fix the
upper 4WD section and it may be in bad shape with rocks on the road.

Thanks Mav! Looks a bit sketchy to take my daily driver up there.

Your Tundra is probably too wide for the road if it is any wider than a Tacoma. My Tacoma was way too close to the edge when I drove up that road a couple years ago and there was a big boulder that blocked the road not to far from where it ended; so you had to park a little ways before the end of the road. If there was that much storm damage, it might not even be suitable for a jeep now.
