The Prairie Trail has two distinct zones. The upper zone runs through a steep, densely timbered slope. Watch your handlebars! There are many tight switchbacks, and the tree gaps are tight. The lower zone runs across the front of Mount Helena, through open meadows and isolated stands of trees. This part of Mount Helena is very popular with hikers and dog walkers, as it is adjacent to residential neighborhoods. Please ride with care.
