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.

Disclaimer

West Main Street is closed to bikes until fall due to construction. Riders descending Horse will need to climb back out of Grizzly Gulch.

Two or three wet spots with a couple inches of snow. Fun all the way day and no walking needed ????

Not recommended, still deep snow in upper meadow and parts of lower gully. May need several weeks.
