Bike along the Missouri River as it flows through Great Falls and beyond for over 57 miles. You’ll pass by five hydroelectric power dams, a canyon area and waterfalls. The trail passes by Giant Springs State Park, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 4 Headquarters, Giant Springs State Fish Hatchery and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Interpretive Center. Wildlife and waterfowl frequent the area adjacent to the trail.
Several city parks and riverfront attractions are connected with over twenty miles of paved urban trails, along with a connection to downtown Great Falls. There are overlooks at Rainbow Falls and Crooked Falls. A free telescope at the Warden Park gazebo gives viewers a panoramic view of the city.
There are 29 miles of marked dirt single track trails east of Great Falls, with a good portion constructed to IMBA standards.
River’s Edge Trail is open year round during daylight hours for non-motorized recreation. North shore and south shore trails have 14 paved trailhead parking areas.
Local bike shops, Great Falls Park & Recreation office, Giant Springs State Park visitor center and the Great Falls visitor center near Warden Park all have free copies of the River’s Edge Trail map.
