We drove up to Zimmerman Park on the rimrocks for walk. The park is simply a network of trails on the Billings rimrocks. It is a great place for an easy stroll or a scamper around the sandstone rock formations.

The Rims are pretty cool and about all the scenery Billings, MT has to offer. On a recent visit to Swords park (I use a very generous term with "park"), the window of my car was smashed and my purse stolen about 2 minutes after I left my car. The police and many Billings folks assured me that this was... More

Trails, such as in Zimmerman park, along the rims are fabulous. My husband and I recently hiked there and had a wonderful time. There are several different trails to choose from ranging from easy to more difficult. Also there are wonderful views and interesting rock formations throughout.

Two of my favorite things to do are to climb around on rocks and look at amazing vistas. This park lets me do both at once! The great sandstone formations made me feel like a kid again by climbing to the top of them. The view of downtown Billings and the mountains and river in the distance was breathtaking. Few... More

I visit the rims frequently. The main walking trail is paved. I've seen people do everything from walk, to roller blade on the rims. The trail follows the natural landscae winding up and down. It's not a boring walk, and I enjoy walking it frequently. It's also a great place for picnics. There are a few scattered benches and tables.... More

We were amazed by the rimrocks when we were flying in to Billings. So different to anything else we had ever seen. Beautiful views over Billings on the way from the airport into town.

I spent about an hour up here. The trails didn't really interest me but it was a way to wind down after a long weekend of working and traveling. Just sitting on the bluffs was spectacular taking the scenic drive was nice as well. I wish I had more time to spend and explore this area.

The rims are the main landmark of Billings, and they stand like sentinels along the northern edge of the city. Nice for a walk along the top or a hike from bottom to top.

This trail system is convenient to downtown Billings and offers nice views of the Billings valley (not that it's too impressive) and has some actual pine trees, which is rare in the Billings area. The Rimrocks are made of sandstone, which have ancient sea worm holes in certain levels of the stone, which is fun for rock hounds. The trail... More
