Pelicans, Rainbow trout,
Giant springs; Great trail for all ages. Bugs will pester you and become part of your diet really quickly.

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
