This is a locals' favorite way to add a little more to a Trail Rider shuttle to the Mount Helena Ridge. As long as you're already on the Ridge, it doesn't take much more climbing to get to the summit of Mount Helena for a rowdy Hogsback - Backside ride. And it's an easy pedal back out to Show Me the Horse.
This route starts at the Trail Rider drop-off point at Prospector Gulch Road, and ends at the Park Avenue Building parking lot. The Trail Rider picks up from the Women's Mural on Broadway. The schedule is available at the Bike Helena website.
