CLARK FORK RIVERFRONT

Paths along the downtown riverfront are at the heart of Missoula's trail network. Walking, bicycling and, in some places, horseback-riding paths along the Clark's Fork of the Columbia River connect city parks and open space, neighborhoods, businesses and the University of Montana. Routes branching off this central corridor link urban Missoula with its surroundings and provide far-reaching access to the great Montana outdoors.

Riverfront trails extend from west of downtown Missoula into Hellgate Canyon, east of town. You can cross the river on any one of the three street bridges across the Clark Fork within this zone – the Orange Street, Higgins Avenue and Madison Street bridges. There's also a footbridge off Van Buren Street, just north of the University of Montana campus and another off California Street.

Missoulians of all ages enjoy these trails from sunrise to sunset. All the trails are wide and level, with virtually no change in elevation. You'll find some nice views of the mountains surrounding Missoula. Dogs are allowed on these trails, but please keep them on a leash and clean up after them.

The riverfront is a favorite place to take a midday break or an evening stroll after dining out. If you're a visitor to our city, go to the riverfront to stretch your legs and clear your mind after a day on the road. You'll get a look at Missoula and a feel for its unique character.
