High Point

Sometimes it seems like a lot of work to get to the top of Mount Helena. While you're already on top of the Ridge, why not add another local gem? This route includes two local favorite downhills: Hogback Trail and Show-Me-The-Horse Trail. It takes in iconic views of Helena from the top of Mount Helena. 1906 Trail is popular with hikers, so please be polite as you climb.

This route was the first stage of the 2014 Helenduro.
