A consultant was selected by the NMTAC in 2009 to complete a master plan and preliminary trail design for an east-west route through town known as the Centennial Trail.
This preliminary 4.75 mile route starts at Spring Meadow Lake, follows the Spring Meadow Trail to Centennial Park, then east to the Montana Avenue/Lyndale Avenue/Helena Avenue intersection, along Boulder Avenue, Billings Avenue and 18TH Street, then connecting with the East Helena bicycle path.
The Centennial Trail Master Plan is available for download. A hard copy is also available at the Lewis & Clark Library.
Centennial Trail Pavers
The Friends are selling brick pavers as a fundraiser for the Centennial Trail. An order form for the pavers is available, and you are encouraged to donate for one or more bricks to help build the trail. We request that your donation be at minimum $100.
Bricks may be inscribed with your name, the name of a business or organization, or the name of someone you wish to honor. Again, proceeds will be used to complete Helena’s Centennial Trail.
These brick pavers will be placed at the site of a meeting spot along the trail, located in Centennial Park. This meeting spots for cyclists and walkers will feature a place to sit, get a drink of water, and will feature a kiosk with maps of the trail, announcements, and so forth.
Thanks for your help. Through buying a brick paver, you are not only leaving your mark along the trail, you are helping us all get it built.
