      This region is Unsanctioned, Ride at your own Risk!

      The North Elkhorns (aka Strawberry Butte) riding area includes Helena-area favorites such as Pinecrest. Much of the lower area is on private land, while the higher portions are USFS. Please respect the landowners to ensure continued access. The majority of the trails in this area are unsanctioned, non-system trails shown for informational purposes. Accordingly, their future is uncertain and trail clearing and maintenance is not legal. USFS planning efforts may result in adoption of some existing routes; however this cannot be guaranteed.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      eBikes Allowed: No
      Shuttleable: YES
