  • Interesting to see the shortest river in the world. Took our younger children to the fish hatchery. They had the small fish blocked off but we could feed the larger fish  more »
  • This is a great place to stop and relax. The details of the springs is most interesting and the adjacent fish hatchery is fun to see.  more »
  • Wanted to go for a run while I was in town. Saw the reviews about the trail and views and wanted to give it a try. The trails are in great condition and you can not beat the views. Glad I was able to ...  more »

  • We love this place. My daughter loves watching the pelicans, geese, ducks and fish and the springs are always gorgeous any time of the year. It's connection with the River's Edge Trail is super nice as well. Great place to hang out on a Sunday afternoon
  • Giant Springs State Park is home to a freshwater spring that feeds into the Missouri River. It’s a perfect stop to take in the beauty of the falls and the Missouri River. Great little picnic area, amazing walking and biking trail along the Missouri, home to the shortest river in the world, as well as a fish hatchery. Don’t miss out!
  • Spent afternoon with family. Kids loved it. There was a bull snake next to the sidewalk but the nice lady Ranger put it in a bucket and Let It Go down by the river. It is a beautiful place to spend the day and to go fishing if you'd like.
  • Giant Springs is a wonderful jewel of a place. If you get there before 5pm you can feed the fish. Amazing hatchery! Make sure to check out Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center (Museum) just up the road. World class! (Use caution of course on trails to watch for rattlers and around river where fast currents are dangerous)
  • I always love to enjoy the outdoor life of Great Falls. The Rivers Edge Trail is a winding, up and down, scenic area with a little bit of challenge. My dog was having fun. Meet people enjoying family or personal time. The raging Missouri River was coming through the dam in spectacular fashion. I would like to see the dog park was open sooner. And the water fountains aren't operational yet.
