Other Things You Might Like
Lewistown Trail System
The Lewistown Trail System consists of 20 miles of multi-purpose trail winding through the community. The trails are usable year-round. Every few miles, the terrain switches, from paved urban pathways connecting businesses and schools downtown, to the crushed gravel cutting swaths through remarkable natural areas. Whether you choose to walk, hike or bike, the Lewistown Trails present the best of the quintessential Montana vistas of mountains, prairies and farmland.
Big Springs Trout Hatchery
Located just a few miles southeast of town, this spot is a perfect casual hangout and has something for everyone. The first thing you’ll notice when arriving at the park is a large shelter and picnic tables surrounded by lush grass and trees. This pavilion is great for a quick afternoon picnic, or it can be reserved for the day (with a $20 fee) and is used for everything from wedding receptions to retirement parties. Just north of the picnic area, the famous Big Spring Creek cuts a cool, bubbling path through the greenery. For a relaxing evening walk, follow the dirt trail that runs over the bridge and across the stream to tour the rest of the park.
Creekside Marketplace & Pavilion
Creekside Marketplace and Pavilion is a family-friendly community gathering facility and event center in Lewistown’s downtown corridor. The site, an abandoned industrial property, is located on Main Street near historical downtown, restaurants, hotels, and a brewery. Beautiful Spring Creek meanders along the northern boundaries of the site.
Lewistown Community Labyrinth Garden
The public garden is for everyone to visit a seven-circuit flower maze. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world.
