Show-Me-The-Horse is Helena's most popular downhill trail. It starts in open meadows, drops into open ponderosa pine forest, and ends in a tight, wooded gully. The trail empties onto Grizzly Gulch Road, and watch for traffic when exiting. It is not formally directional, and is multi-use, so be on the lookout for trail runners or hikers. There is no parking available at the bottom.
West Main Street is closed to bikes until fall due to construction. Riders descending Horse will need to climb back out of Grizzly Gulch.
