      The South Hills are Helena's backyard. With nearly 80 miles of singletrack and trailheads in many neighborhoods, even downtown, the South Hills trail network makes it easy to get out for rides ranging from 4 to 40 miles. The network is spread out across a series of four ridges that are separated by gulches.

      The open lands are a patchwork of public and private ownership, and good trail etiquette helps maintain and expand our access. Please respect other trail users on our popular network.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
