HikingGreat!Icy

Butt kicker for sure! Loved it though and great views from the top! Icy patches to watch out for but otherwise great trail! Took No Trail to Powerline and about died, that trail is definitely straight up.

Beautiful morning for a hike. Yesterday was the warmest day this season. However, after midnight a quick storm crossed and cooler temperatures were perfect!

HikingNo shadeRocky

arrived at 930 a.m. on Saturday 8/3. plenty of parking I would not say this hike is little kid friendly. it's a big incline. no flattening out. no shade. lots of loose rocks. be sure to wear good shoes and bring lots of water. the top of powerline has a nice view of helena. and literally has a powerline pole at the top of the hill. I would recommend coming up from one of the other trails and coming down this one. the others are much more enjoyable.
