Markings could be clearer. Fantastic views. Much harder than moderate, though. Steep, with scrabbly spots.

No real directions. We kind of wandered around but it was a beautiful hike.

Description should be added to include all trail names needed to get to the top but it was a great hike.

Began the hike around 12:30. Left around 3:00. It we a warm November evening an snow had not yet arrived, so we gave it a shot. This was my second mountain biking experience, and I guess I just expected it to be more epic. You hike for 1- 1 1/2 hours and a 1/2 downhill. What can I say? It's not Big Sky.

Great trail close enough to town for a quick hike, but far enough away to forget that you're in Helena.

A series of well marked trails offering a decent ascent to Mt. Ascension. At the saddle, heading to the peak away from My. Ascension affords even better views.
