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.
