Located in Mount Helena City Park, on the southwest edge of Helena's Upper West Side neighborhood. This is the most technically difficult approach to the summit of Mount Helena. A rideable line is almost always obvious, but obstacles are varied and occur over long stretches; it's a fun test piece. There's good access to other trails, including the Mount Helena ridge National Recreation Trail.
