Trail Overview

This 3-mile RT track takes you to Hedges Mountain in the Helena National Forest at an elevation of 7131 feet. The scenery is spectacular, the forest is healthy and well-maintained, and the wildlife includes deer, elk, moose, and bears. All private property crossings are allowed if you stay on the trail. You may encounter some downed timber in some places, so carrying a saw, a snatch block, as well as a tow rope and other recovery equipment, is a good idea. Take extra fuel, lots of water, and snacks.
