Good place to walk near town and see the native vegetation. There are porta potty type toilets and no water. If it is the least bit warm be sure to bring water. You can stay on fairly level ground or hike a few hundred feet down to the Yellowstone River.

We had a couple if hours before our flight and stopped here, well worth it! The views are beautiful all the way around. Small hike, located in the nesting grounds of peregrine falcons, so we had to watch were we hiked. Very interesting to see where they neat in such a beautiful rugged place

We went geocashing and there were 5 in this section. The park is just kind of there. Its got a picnic area with a roof. You can see the town of Billings from here.

The views are stunning when you hike out to the bluffs, and look out over the Yellowstone River. The other trail down to the river is a serious hike, with a sharp drop in elevation, and a steep climb back up. If you only have time for one trail, stay up on the bluffs. The area is steeped in Native... More

The views are what make this place great, and there are Native American stories that enrich the experience of standing on the spot where momentous events occurred.

We enjoyed hiking in Four Dances RA, climbing up to the ridge line and dropping down toward the river. We were on our way to Yellowstone, and considered this a "warm-up" hike. It definitely got our hiking legs going with the hills, and we enjoyed the views of the Billings area from the clifftops. We got to watch a hawk... More

This place is easily accessible off Coburn Rd and is on the way to the pictograph caves so you can easily do both in a couple hours as we did. No amenities at this site, so bring water. A 5 min hike up to the bluff gives great views of the Yellowstone river and Billings valley. A longer walk (or... More

This is a great view of the city, looking northwest over the power plant and the refinery! But if you have the legs it is a unique place to access the river also, just be careful and watch for snakes and nesting birds in the spring/early summer.

Don't be fooled by the unassuming entrance to this nature area. Hike the short distance up the hill for a fantastic view of the Yellowstone River and the hills and mountains. The two most interesting views were on the south spur trail and on the river trail. The river trail is definitely more rugged, though, so if you don't like... More
