Show Me the Horse is a local favorite with wicked-fast descending, banked corners, and flow beyond belief! This is a must-ride.

    This is really only a down-sloping cross-country trail that is a bit more curvy than most. It is fast but don't expect a lot of interesting technical features. It drops about 250 feet in about two miles.

    This is an awesome descent off of Mount Helena Ridge Trail that will test how fast you can go on a mountain bike. Jumps and a few berms spice up the fun too. My only complaint is that, for a hardtail rider, the braking bumps in the turns are extremely big and suck the energy from your body. Lucky, most of the time you can just ride the outside or inside of the berm and keep on shredding!

    This is an absolutely RIPPING descent--of all the trails that I rode during my 3-day trip to Helena, this was the best descent! Flowing turns, banks, a few jumps, but just flipping' FAST!!
