Riverfront Walking Trail
The riverfront walking trail lines the north and south shores of the Clark Fork River in Downtown Missoula. A walk along the trail can take you past McCormick Park, the Old Milwaukee Depot, John H. Toole Park and other scenic treasures in Missoula. Parks and Recreation has put together a great riverfront walking & biking tour here.
Caras Park is in the heart of Downtown Missoula on the Clark Fork River. The Park Pavilion is home to many popular Missoula events like Missoula's Out to Lunch, Downtown Tonight, Brewfests and more. Caras Park is a great spot to hop on the Riverfront Walking trail, watch kayakers at Brennan's Wave or sit back with a beer and enjoy some live music during one of Missoula's premiere events. Find out more about Caras Park events by checking the Events Calendar and our Annual Events.
