Big Falls Professional Review and Guide

"At 90 feet high, Big Falls is the tallest of the five waterfalls known as the Great Falls of the Missouri.

Before being dammed in 1915, it was undoubtedly one of the most dynamic waterfalls in Montana. Although the Ryan Dam and powerhouse now detract from the wildness of the location, these noble falls are still worth a visit. It’s a very short stroll to the overlook on Ryan Island."
