High Point

This is a locals' favorite way to add on to a Mount Helena Ridge ride, by descending Emmett's Trail, and climbing back onto the Ridge before continuing on to Show Me the Horse. Watch your handlebars on Emmett's. There are some tight trees.

This route begins at the Trail Rider drop-off point at Prospector Gulch Road, and ends at the Park Avenue Building parking lot.
