Looking for a big day in the mountains, with primitive trails and commanding views of the Helena region? Look no farther than Casey Peak! It's hard to believe a backcountry ride like this can be found only a few miles from Helena, but here it is. Expect some hike-a-bike on the spur trail leading to the Casey Peak summit. Take the McClellan Creek Road southeast from Montana City, and park near the confluence with East Fork McClellan Creek.
Helena boasts a trail at the end of every street and a brewery at the end of every ride. With over 400 miles of trails in the area, and 80 miles accessible from downtown you can easily explore the nationally recognized mountain biking and hiking trails.
