Although this is a permitted event, trails are open to the general public. Riders must be under control at all times.
The 2018 Helenduro is the 10th anniversary of one of North America's longest-running enduro races. We wanted to make this one special, so it's a mix of classic Helenduro stages and local favorites that have never been raced before.
This year's race crosses the South Hills over six stages, and ends with a classic view of downtown Helena as you race towards post-ride refreshment at Karmadillos Southwest Cafe.
Stage 1: Wide open rocky gnar on Hogsback Trail, across Backside Trail to Prairie Trail, where you'll need to be on your A game to thread the tight trees. Finish up by descending Swaney Trail and Direttissima Trail.
Stage 2: Helena's classic Show-Me-The-Horse Trail. Not much more to add.
Stage 3: Descend north from Wakina Sky meadow via Wakina Sky Trail and Evan's Trail. Watch out for Evan's - it's sneaky at race speed.
Stage 4: Another Helena classic: Rent Money Trail down to Davis Gulch via Rodney Ridge Trail.
Stage 5: This is another long one - off the top of Mount Ascension via 2006 Trail, Ridge Rider Trail, and Little Moab Trail. Little Moab is a local's favorite with some choose-your-own-adventure lines across the bedrock.
Stage 6: Bring it home in full view of the finish on the Acropolis Crest Trails. Watch out for tight turns that sneak up on you in a hurry.
