    About the Central Divide Region


    The Central Divide Region is based in Helena, the capital of Montana, at the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Our city is nestled between Mount Helena and Mount Ascension, both city parks boasting a combined 80 miles of trail just a moment’s walk from the city’s charming historic downtown. Zooming out, Helena is conveniently located halfway between Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks as well as Montana’s larger cities. Helena is within reach of high plains, great rivers and rugged mountains just as wild as when the Lewis and Clark expedition passed through the area more than 200 years ago. In Montana, where the mountains meet the plains, you’ll find “the Queen City of the Rockies.”
