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.

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.

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.
