Great walking trail. Fun to see the fish in the hatchery. Very high traffic and lots of wind.

Easy access and a great spot for bird watchers!! The trail runs along the Missouri River and is paved 100% of the way.

For more information go to http://thetrail.org/ or the Face Book page.
The official start of the trail is in Broadwater Bay park but, it can be accessed in many places.
There are even a few hotels along the river and the trail goes by them so, it can be a great place to unwind at the end of the day.
A lot of the trail is paved but, on the East end past Rainbow Falls it turns to dirt and is a great place to mountain bike. Take water and snacks as there are no facilities once you go past Giant Springs Park.
On the West side there is a nice view of Great Falls from West Bank part.
This is a wonderful trail to walk or bike
