Helena, like most towns in Montana, is surrounded by hundreds of miles of backcountry singletrack, up high in the mountains. But unlike many other Montana towns, they also have absolutely fantastic riding located directly adjacent to town–75 miles of it, in fact.

This area is known as the “South Hills Trail System.” This trail network is accessible at the end of almost every street in Helena, with 28 different access points–8 of which sport parking lots and full trailhead amenities.
