“Waterfowl and a great walk”
Review of Fort Benton Bridge

Attraction details
Reviewed 23 May 2013

When in Fort Benton walking the historical bridge is a great way to observe waterfowl and become acquainted with the free running Missouri River. Along the river walk there are plenty of posters describing the historical events of the town and the mighty Missouri.

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

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.

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.

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.
