“Odd bridge to nowhere”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

A cool little girder bridge that leads to nowhere... The bridge is quite photogenic - and is ironically best appreciated from the river banks.

“Step in time”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Walking on the bridge and continuing on the foot path, you could visualize in your mind the history of the settlers, trappers and Indians and what their life might have been like.

“Northern Plains and Agricultural Museum”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

Ft. Benton has several museums including the old fort, but the Northern Plains was above and beyond our expectations. It was off the beaten path (over by the High School), but the exhibits and the "old town" were exceptionally well done. Don't miss it. Ft Benton is a delightful town on the Missouri River with tons of early explorer history, a wonderful park with river access and a great bridge for walking and relaxing.. It is less than an hour out of Great Falls. Definitely worth a day trip.

“Nice View”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

A nice place to stop and have lunch or take a break for a short walk. Has been refurbished for pedestrians. Benches to sit and relax and just watch the water flow beneath you. The bridge is old but nothing spectacular.

“Beautiful and historic.”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

This bridge has spanned centuries and still stands majestically for all to wal out on and view up and down the river. I love this old bridge.
