Awful potholed road getting there and a big disappointment on arrival. I cannot recommend wasting gas visiting this place.

Without a doubt, the River's Edge trail is the best of it's kind in the state, affording beautiful scenery, historical information, and a lot of miles to explore. With it being on both sides of the Missouri River and several bridges to get from one side to the other, it is a great recreational attraction. The Lewis and Clark Interpretive... More

Our family visits here once a week. Feed the trout for a nickle, walk through the well maintained park. Gaze at the massive rainbow trout, and look at one of the most beautiful springs in the lower 48. No complaints. Fairly quiet too as not enough folks have discovered this gem.

Great trail! It runs the length of Great Falls and then beyond too, so a nice variety of scenery to match whatever mood you're in.

I took a walk along this trail for about an hour and enjoyed the walk. The river is very scenic and offers several opportunities to view wildlife and a beautiful shoreline. This trail is great for walking and biking. This is a must see in Great Falls.

The area of this trail that we walked--which we accessed from the Lewis and Clark Center--was magnificent. The Missouri River was always in view, and of course the history of the river, and Lewis & Clark, adds to the experience.

We enjoy walking (also a great bike trail) the River's Edge Trial on our visits to Great Falls. Extending over 40 miles along both sides of the Missouri River, and linking a number of smaller parks, this trail provides nice views of the river gorge and all the hydro-electric dams, reservoirs and waterfalls along the Missouri.

Family Fun and Free - Walk, Hike or Bike. Worth the trip on a sunny day. We go at least once a month as a family and I find that its relaxing and more beautiful each time we go

Have been walking this trail for 15 years, and have discovered new things every time. Great place to commune with nature, and get exercise with history too....

Very well-done trail. Some of it is paved, while the part downstream is single track path. If you're not afraid to put one foot in front of the other, it's a great trail.
