About Helena, Montana
There are few better areas in Montana to discover the crossroads of iconic “Big Sky” landscapes and early western expansion than MCC’s Central Divide region. Based in Helena, the state’s capital city, the area was first charted by Americans during the famed Lewis and Clark Expedition. Much of these high plains, great rivers, and rugged mountains are just as wild as when the group trudged up mighty Missouri over two hundred years ago. Today the area is largely comprised of the Helena National Forest, a nearly one million acre forest that includes wilderness and a game preserve, and is a safe haven for large predators. This region was also home to the Last Chance Gulch gold claim that produced some 50 millionaires and dispersed $3.6 billion (in today’s dollars) into the economy. The end result is a region packed with unique western history and classic Montana recreational opportunities.
