Looking for a big day in the mountains, with primitive trails and commanding views of the Helena region? Look no farther than Casey Peak! It's hard to believe a backcountry ride like this can be found only a few miles from Helena, but here it is. Expect some hike-a-bike on the spur trail leading to the Casey Peak summit. Take the McClellan Creek Road southeast from Montana City, and park near the confluence with East Fork McClellan Creek.

 Fun loop, we did it clockwise and would recommend going that way.
