Steep climb, great workout to the top. No switch-backs, just straight up but fairly short.

During our first visit to Helena, we hiked the Powerline trail to the summit and took 1906 down the mountain. Being from the Midwest, I found this first climb to be moderately challenging. I consider myself relatively fit, but have to admit the altitude and steep incline in a short amount of time was not expected. After spending a week in that altitude, I returned to the same hike and did it in half the time.

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.
