Prospect Shafts Trail Professional Review and Guide

"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."
