Helena, a gold rush town, was a “Last Chance” for 4 gold miners who struck it rich in 1864.

Located near the Continental Divide, hiking, mountain biking, fishing and rafting are located minutes from town. For an interesting overview of the town’s history, the Last Chance Tour Train travels through town and time with its narrated tour of historic buildings.  Skip to Best Time to Visit. View Map.
