ABOUT

the trail & foundation

Stretching almost 60 miles along both sides of the Missouri River, River’s Edge Trail provides the perfect opportunity for walking, hiking, jogging, skating, cycling, and mountain biking. The paved and singletrack trails encompass spectacular views of the mountains, prairies, river canyons, waterfalls, reservoirs, and five hydroelectric dams while also connecting to Great Falls’ historic downtown, numerous parks, dining options, and attractions.

The River’s Edge Trail Foundation’s mission is to provide trails for people to explore Great Falls’ outdoor opportunities and to improve the community’s quality of life.
