Steady and steep incline but not a bad hike for being so close to town. Nice views as you go along

Great hike! Longer than I thought it would be, but worth the effort.

Pleasant.

This trail is definitely tough but worth the hike once you get to the summit!

This was a great trail for a nice day hike. Although it is an in town trail, the fairly dense woods can make you forget you are not away from town. The views from the summit are gorgeous and are well worth the time.

very nice, fun with lots of side trails to explore

I used to hike on Mount Helena regularly and summited a handful of times. It's definitely a tough one for those who don't hike regularly! I love the mix between woodland and meadows. And the views all around are stunning.

Gets lot of use even in winter on a good day. Has an awesome cave as you're going up. Need to be in relatively good shape if you plan on getting to the top. Incredible view of Helena and surrounding areas. Should be a requirement if you're just visiting/new to Helena.

"Must do" trail in the Helena Area! Excellent vistas, well maintained and doable 24/7. It's a climb... 1300ft from downtown, about 1000 from the Adam's Street trailhead, but well worth it. Can be icy but slow and easy will get you there anyway

The Prairie Trail is one that can be used to add distance to sister trails on Mount Helena. It pretty much skirts the base of the mountain. It has open field areas as well as portions with good tree coverage.

Because this is an in-town hike, the trail gets a LOT of use. Although it make for an easy access the heavy usage also means that if you are seeking solitude you probably won't find it often on this trail. The 1906 trail is primarily north facing. This means that in winter, once snow is packed down to ice, it does not melt very quickly. Hiking this trail without traction devices that have "teeth" will mean you are bound to end up with a more than your feet hitting the ground.

A nice and flat trail, some rolling. Very pretty and popular for the locals.

first off. This trail is rated as Easy, I think that really depends on who you are and what your intent is. Taking your new to hiking young kids? not easy, anyone nit in great ir at least fairly decent shape will not find this an easy trail. its 1.6 miles escalating over 1300 feet on dirt, scree and rocky trails. Mediocre would probabky fit better. its a lovely trail though. I travelled from GF first hike after a resp. illness so I had to stop frequently. I hike often, but this whiped me out, in fairness my health isnt top after being sick. its well worth it when you summit though the views are breathtaking.

LeGrande Cannon is a great trail for going out for a Sunday stroll. Their are no real climbs or decents involved, its pretty level. For those who crave a little more excitment. Half way down is a few trails that head up the NW side of Mt. Helena.

Nothing is real special about this trail. Great for those getting started. Has a few small gradual climbs but nothing to get off your seat for.
