helena is home to most of our countY'S population with 31,000 people living in the city limits.
Helena, besides being the state capitol and playing host to a nicely restored and historic downtown district, is located in a very scenic area. Just to the west of town is the Continental Divide and the Helena National Forest. The National Forest has excellent hiking and hunting opportunities – not to mention some serious off road, mountain bike and 4x4 trails for the adventurous. The Helena National Forest is quite literally located a stone's throw away from downtown, while the Lewis and Clark National Forest is scattered around in various spots to the north of the city.
