Mountain biking in the Helena National Forest is fantastic. Today, my first time here, I went on two ride totaling over 20 miles and didn't even scratch the surface of well marked and categorized as to difficulty trails.

For the first ride I caught a free shuttle from Women's Mural park in town which took a whole buss load of riders and hikers to the Helena Ridge Trailhead which ended up right back in town.

Loving the first ride so much I decided to haul myself back up Grizzly Gulch for a second more difficult ride on the Walkina Ridge / Stairway To Heaven Trail and then down the hill through Uniontown back to my truck.

Great day of riding for sure.

What more do you want? First, hike up a mountain right from downtown and then come back for a fresh, cold beer at the quaint local Black Foot River Brewing Co.!

I driven through, picnic, and hiked a few times, but plan to come back when I can spend more time and do some fishing and camping. Absolutely beautiful from the mountain.

What can you say, it was a typical forest, full of trees, moose, elk, bears, rocks, ticks etc. OK, it was a little boring, but a forest none the less.
