If you are in great falls, mt and want a good walk, I recommend the river's edge trail. Parts of it are not on the edge but most of it is.

We wanted to walk along the river, and noticed this trail on the map. It turned out to involved walking about a mile, just to get to the beginning. Then it was a pleasant ramble along the river with a few good birds to be found in the river and trees.

I just want to let visitors know that there are in fact 17 convenient parking areas available along the urban section of the trail. These are shown on the River's Edge Trail map, which is available at the Visitor Center, Park Department, and many hotels and businesses. The map can also be seen and downloaded on the River's Edge Trail... More

There is nothing better that a brisk morning walk along the rivers' edge. Everything is clearly marked and you get to see some of the most eye-pleasing sights and sounds. Loved the bridge details, as well.

It is a pretty river trail that take's you around some of the city. The path way breaks in a few areas but it was no problem finding the path again. Enjoy.

Lovely walking/biking trail along the Missouri River in Great Falls. It covers several miles, however, we only walked a couple miles of it, as it was getting dark. There is construction going on along some of the portions, so we did not walk during the work hours. We were staying at a hotel along River Drive, and equipment was noisy... More

Thank you to everyone for letting us know you enjoy the trail. Here is some updated information: There is a half-mile section of trail along River Drive South, near Oddfellows Park and the motels, that has been disrupted by a city water main project. We expect the contractors to repair the trail and surrounding park land when the project is... More

The trail is blocked off for a huge section. Pumping is occurring and culverts are being placed. Under the railroad overpass the birds have nested. Be careful of being pooped on as they are numerous. The trail follows the Missouri River and although construction is happening and there was a sewer smell it is still an enjoyable walk.

we were only able to walk some of the trail but enjoyed it very much. Great Falls is doing a great job for the population there. AS usual we enjoyed our stay with our daughter and grand kids.

This trail is mostly paved with blacktop and extends past the waterfalls around Great Falls along the Missouri River. It is used by walkers, joggers, skaters and bicyclists and a variety of wildlife can be viewed along its path. The trail grows every year and even has dirt trails for mountain bike enthusiasts. It meanders along the Missouri River, goes... More

Love walking Rivers edge, I don't do it enough. Very peaceful, with beautiful view of the Missouri River. Great walking area for families with children of all ages and dogs too.
