Helena has become Montana's Spring riding destination. Our extensive lower elevation trail network adjacent to town combined with lower precipitation levels makes Helena the ideal riding venue for those suffering from Spring Fever. With the first hints of Spring weather we know many of you are anxious to ride but please remember riding when trails are wet not only damages trails but damages access opportunities for all mountain bike riders. These updates are ment to help you determine when riding Helena's trail system is appropriate.
4/1/2014 - As with most areas in Western Montana Helena recieved abundent snowfall this past winter and we're still dealing with the consequences. The South Hills trail system is currently still snow covered and/or wet. We realize it has been a long winter and you may be temped to "check it out"...please don't. If you just can't wait the Scratch Gravel Hills are dry and rideable. Expect South Hills riding opportunities to open up on lower elevation trail near the end of April.
