Description

The Mount Helena Ridge Trail is located only a short distance from the city of Helena, Montana and is connected to the Mount Helena City Park. The Mount Helena Ridge Trail is 5.9 miles long. The trail begins at a trailhead near Park City, approximately 5 miles south of Helena.

This ridge trail is nearly six miles of outrageous singletrack, with great views of surrounding mountains and valleys, including a distant Helena townscape.
