Trail Overview

The York Gulch Trail connects York Road to Hedges Mountain, Oregon Gulch, Kingsberry Spur, and the Magpie Creek to Avalanche Creek Trails. You go from 3900 feet to just over 6200 feet in the Helena National Forest. 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
