Important Message Regarding Construction

Please take a moment to review this important information regarding the construction on N. Main in Helena which will strongly impact the Trail Rider and mountain bikers during Spring & Summer of 2018. 

The good news: West Main from Carriage Lane to the Oro Fino Gulch/Grizzly Gulch “Y” will be getting a much needed face-lift this summer.

The not as good news: Travel via foot and bicycle from some of the areas of the trail system back to downtown Helena will be more challenging. This year we will have a different type of adventurous trail season – bear with us!

 

The West Main Street Reconstruction Project creates a complete road closure from now until August 8th.

 

This affects trail usage in this area! Trail runners, hikers, and bikers can no longer pass through the construction zone via pilot car nor after operating hours.Please utilize an interactive map or download Prickly Pear Land Trust's FREE Avenza App to help reroute to other trails!https://pricklypearlt.org/trails

Bike Helena’s trail rider will still be making runs to the Mt. Helena Ridge trailhead this year, just be prepared with alternate plans to get back to town.

The most important part of this construction: remain courteous and patient–on the trail and avoid the construction site–navigating these areas with a smile goes a long way to keeping our trails happy.

Questions or concerns regarding the construction can be directed to: Helena Sand & Gravel 459-2003
