This trail follows the old FR 4020 doubletrack straight up the fall line. It features several very steep pitches, deep ruts, and is becoming overgrown. Climbing it is an old-school South Hills challenge. The USFS has attempted to close this route in the past, but equipment access was an issue - so it's still here to challenge us.

This trail is unsanctioned.

Disclaimer

The Helena Ranger District posted closure signs on this trail in 2021.
