Trails and Walking Paths
River's Edge Trail (RET) – Great Falls' nationally-known, 44 mile trail along the Missouri River connects many urban parks and attractions with all the waterfalls and reservoirs east of the city. Paved trail extends from Warden Park to Crooked Falls on the South shore and from Garden Home Park to Black Eagle Memorial Island on the North shore. Challenging single-track trails follow the river canyon as far as Box Elder Creek on the South shore and from Rainbow Dam to Sulphur Spring on the North Shore.
Park Paths – The system of paved paths in and connecting Gibson and Elks' Riverside Parks predate the River's Edge Trail
