I hiked this from the trailhead up Grizzly Gulch after dropping a vehicle of at Mt. Helena.This is a very nice hike with lots of great views.This trail is traveled quite often,so the trail is very easy to follow.

Great hike, or mountain bike, when in the Helena area. Starts with a well layed out climb to the ridge and then levels off on the ridgetop as you travel into Mt. Helena City Park. 360 degree views as the well marked trail passes through forest and grassland. Year round access. Free Shuttle service from downtown to trailhead on weekends during the summer (call Prickly Pear Land Trust for details).

We began in town with the free trolley ride to the upper trailhead. The toughest part of this trail is at this end, going up. Once you're on top of the ridge, however, it is a fairly gentle trail with few ups and downs. Beware of the numerous rocks that protrude out of the dirt trail. After reaching the end, make for a quick clean-up and head to the Mediterrainin Grill for an early dinner.
