Really snowy, but a great trail!

This was my first Hike in the park. It was beautiful! I am not in outstanding physical condition and I needed to stop and rest several times on my way to the summit but so worth it! The trail is rocky and snow covered in winter I recommend using Yak trax .

Fantastic trail. Enough said.

With all the recent wood chipping it smells wonderful!!! This trail is a little steeper than 1906 but is more direct and will get you to the top faster. I suggest going up Powerline and down 1906 for a nice loop.

What a great trail with beautiful views!

Great view of Helena at the top!

Trail is not clearly marked

It's a good loop.

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

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.

Grizzly Gulch Drive is a porous road that continues after Helena's Park/Main Streets end. There are plenty of residential drivers, dogs and the potential for grizzly bears (yes, seriously, very seriously, the road's name is not cutely named, it's realistic, grizzlies are known to attack sheep outside Helena and there are many signs posted in this area warning of the bear threat). So it's not a great place for trail running, as I found out the hard way, but Grizzly Gulch seems like a nice access road for mountain biking. Take bear spray.

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.

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