Trail is not clearly marked

It's a good loop.

Intense.

This was a great day hike, and the view from the top is unbelievable. Big sky country here for sure.

A local treasure. Soaring views with lots of interesting terrain. Great day for hiking or mountain biking. Shuttle on Saturday mornings to trailhead.

nice trail!

Hiked​ the ridge through from the Prospector Rd trailhead to Adams St. The views on the
ascent to the south are spectacular with mountains and trees galore. As soon as you round the mountain, your view north includes Helena, the rest of Mt Helena, and the rest of this basin we call home.

Fewer hikers and greater chance of seeing wildlife have brought me back to the Prospector side of the mountain numerous times. I'll gladly risk the bears to enjoy the solitude.

Easy, nice views of Helena valley.

The 1906 is a fairly easy trail. For more of a challenge and for the better in shape, go straight up Powerline and take Prairie Trail or go higher and come down the 1906 back to the trailhead/parking lot. Need ice trekkers in Feb as the snow turns to ice. The varying terrain keeps it interesting.

Excellent views of Helena.

beautiful but definitely a climb

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.
