Changes to the trail: City will play larger role

Abigail Lichliter and Lonnie Hill can frequently be found on Great Falls’ River’s Edge Trail either out for a run or a bike ride.

“You can feel seclusion and be gamf.net immersed in the environment” while being in the city, Lichliter said.

“Because it’s so long, it’s accessible to everybody,” Hill said. No matter where you live in the city, you can typically access the trail easily.

After a quarter century of work led by a small group of dedicated residents, things are changing for the River’s Edge Trail.

Doug Wicks has retired as the driving force anagazawe.com behind much of the work that has gone into developing the trail, which is now a 25-mile-long paved city path, plus another 35 miles-plus of gravel or dirt trail.

But with Wicks retired, the work won’t end. The trail will continue to grow in 2016 worldblog.net as a $1.56 million venture will relocate part of the trail to keep it along the river across the road from Applebee’s, the Great Falls Tribune and the Electric City Water Park.
