While Billings MT is a small town in the scheme of things it was still a pleasant surprise to get up to The Rimrocks and get a different view of the area. You have a good walking track or jogging track which gives you views over all downtown and the Yellowstone Kelly memorial and Boothill as well. A nice side... More

This has... More

If you visit Billings going to the rims is a must. Just keep a tight grip on the kiddos, because, while scenic, you are on a cliff. There are good trails along much of the rims for hiking or running.

The view was quite good but it was pretty rundown. They could spend a small amount of money and make it into something people would stop in to see since it is right across from the Airport.

It's a shelf outcropping above the town. Sorry nothing special. We left the town from this area so it was not out of our way. Honestly, not worth a special trip

Sandy trails to the bluffs overlooking Billings. Explore as much or little as you please. Great for dog walking and mountain biking too. Fantastic views.

The paths are not well marked but that's a big part of the draw. Once you explore beyond the area immediately adjacent to the parking lot atop Zimmerman Trail you realize the topography is fantastic and the views stunning. The parkland goes on and on for acres and much of it is unspoiled. Go on a clear day or perhaps... More
