Okay, to be fair, G. Falls is centrally located and most outdoor activities require a bit of a drive. That said, River's Edge Trail is an excellent place for running, biking, rollerblading, etc. Some areas are a little on the rough side for blading. Recently discovered the trail area near Rainbow dam/good for trail running and mountain biking. River's Edge... More

A lovely walk with lots to see and has many information post along the way, which I found helpful since I am not from the area. We walked from the Lewis and Clark interpretive centre to the Giant Springs/fish hatchery. It was a very nice way to spend the morning.

We have visited different sections of this trail on different visits to Great Falls and loved it every time. It's a beautiful, paved, right-on-the-Missouri-River path that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy, and connects many of Great Falls' best landmarks. This trail is truly one of the best features of GF!
