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

On a clear day you can see the whole Billings area. The road runs past the airport. It was the Fourth of July and all the Cliffside parking was roped off. The houses in the area were spectacular.

First of all, there is basically little to no signage, so good luck finding the place w/o a map app on your handheld. The road up is easy enough, it's the same one that takes you to the airport, but there's not much to point you west to Zimmerman Park (about 5 miles west). Once you get to Zimmerman Park,... More

The Rimrocks are unique to Billings, and they provide magnificent views of the city! We walked the trails in Zimmerman Park and were able to see for miles. Very remarkable experience, don't miss this!

We drove up here twice to look around and take a hike. Loved the drive up Zimmerman Trail, as well as the view from the top. Billings is a great place to visit.

The Rims provide great views of the city. They also provide nice walking/biking paths. Stay away around Independence Day. They have everything locked up tight.

There are a few things to say about THE RIMROCKS in Billings, Montana. First you can’t miss them and second, if you fly into Logan International Airport you are already there. Third, the view is outstanding and visiting Rimrocks is free. Who could ask for more? These high bluffs overlook Billings. The view is amazing. You can park and walk... More
