Helena History Hikes and Walks ready for another season


The Montana History Foundation is launching the 2022 season of its Helena History Hikes and Walks program.

Three tours will run several times per week starting Memorial Day weekend and ending Labor Day weekend.

Helena History Hikes and Walks promotes heritage tourism, outdoor recreation and downtown businesses.

“We are excited to build on last season’s program and offer a wider variety of history tours this summer,” said President/CEO Charlene Porsild. “Our goal is to have the tours connect residents and visitors with Helena’s rich landscape and history.”

The three tours are as follows:
