Hillsboro Trail Reviews

Too Bumpy

Nice trail, espevially for walking. Tree roots are heaving the pavement all along the trail making it very unpleasant for cycling.

Hillsboro Trail

Nice ride but some of the pavement was extra bumpy. Great fall views.

nice easy ride in Helena

A good ride for the family. Relatively flat with some exception at one end. 299ft total evaluation change. Good shade for most. Walkers common but wide enough for all to enjoy.
