Located in the South Hills, about seven blocks south of Broadway between Last Chance Gulch and the Capitol Complex. A great singletrack right out of one of Helena's oldest neighborhoods. The long ridge ride offers outstanding 360-degree views, a diabolic downhill, and a good chance of seeing deer and other wildlife. Much of the open space adjoining the old neighborhood is slated for a housing development. Landowners higher upslope have posted many trails against trespass. Obey all posted property lines; ask for permission before crossing private land.
