Description

This shared use path follows abandoned rail lines, rural parks, and urban parks along the Missouri's southern bank all the way from the Lewis and Clark Overlook Trailhead to Downtown Great Falls.

Be sure to check out Giant Springs State Park, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and the Riverside Skate Park along the way. Mountain Bikes are allowed in the skate park if you really want to test your riding skills...!!!

Lots of wildlife, historic sites, scenic viewpoints, and easy ridin' along the way.
