Trail shared by Tad Davis

A trail taking you from the primary parking lot into the Mt. Helena Park trail system.

Description

Starting from the large parking lot, head south. The trial begins flat heading south but soon turns west. After a short distance, the trail will begin to climb and wind a bit entering a more forested area. At the end, the trail connects with the Hogsback Trail for a short climb straight up the ridge to the peak of Mt. Helena.
