This event only happens a couple times a year; ride, run, walk across Cochrane Dam! The Dam will be open for the public to cross from 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday, August 22nd. There are multiple ways to enjoy this event. You can access the Dam from Rainbow Trailhead at the end of Rainbow Dam Rd and take a leisurely bike ride to the Dam, about 2.5 miles to the Dam. At that point you can relax on the Dam and take in the views and head back to your vehicle. If you are a little more adventurous you can take the single track from Rainbow Trailhead, medium difficulty and about 4 miles.
If you are wanting a full day adventure, park your vehicle on the South Shore trailhead, Lewis and Clark Overlook and take one of the many trails along the South Shore to Cochrane Dam, cross it and then head to Rainbow Trailhead on the North Shore. Remember to set up a shuttle!
This event made possible through Montana State Parks, Giant Springs State Park, NorthWestern Energy, Recreational Trails Inc, City of Great Falls Parks & Recreation, Race Montana, Great Falls Bicycle Club and the Central Montana Trails Group.
