Discover Unspoiled Scenic Trails

Are you ready to play on the happiest trails in America? Helena’s backyard trail system includes 75+ miles of singletrack in the South Hills, 50+ miles in the North Valley, the Continental Divide Trail west of town, and countless trails in York. Whether you’re a seasoned outdoor enthusiast or a first-time visitor, the Helena trails invite you to hike, run, bike, and delight in our wild places.

We have a growing network of accessible trails, too! People of all ages and abilities flock to Tenmile Creek Park, this 180-acre former ranchland provides a peaceful escape with three miles of accessible trails. North of the park, the Scratchgravel Hills feature about 50 miles of trails popular with mountain bikers, equestrians, and hikers. Visit Helena is here to help discover, plan, and share the trails with our community and visitors. Utilize this site to help find maps and resources to have an epic trip in Helena.

With over 150+ miles of trails surrounding Helena, we are passionate about preserving our access to the lands and are forever indebted to those who preserved the land.

Happy Trails Tips

HAVE FUN. We’re all neighbors on the trail. Smile, say hello, share the trail, and let adventure be your guide.

LEAVE NO TRACE. Pack out your trash, leave what you find (even the wildflowers), observe wildlife from a distance, and stay off muddy trails.

HEALTHY HABITS. Know your body’s limits and stay hydrated. Dress for the weather. Carry a map. Respect private property. Share your plans with a friend.

DOGS ARE WELCOME. Furry friends are great trail companions. Always pack out dog waste and follow leash rules.

We’re a community of trail lovers, and we can’t wait to share the fun with you. See you at the trailhead!
