The climb to Top of the World crosses private land, and is accessed via Lupine Drive, a private road. Please respect the landowners and help preserve access to this valuable area.

This two-summit loop is a Helena classic and includes two locals'-favorite downhills: Entertainment Trail and Top of the World / Rent Money. The options for varying the route are many, especially on Rodney Ridge. Suggested alternative routes off of Rodney Ridge include the T.R. Trail or Don't Fence Me In Trail.
