Great place to watch a sunrise, sunset, lunar eclipse or the stars.

The view from the Rimrocks changes as the seasons do. Nice place to walk for exercise or take a slow stroll.

You can' come to Billings and not see the Rimrocks. They stand alone as the number one landscape feature in Billings. Be sure to travel to the top up by the airport and see the great views of the city and the Yellowstone valley. Fun hiking, running and biking trails. Pretty much the go to spot to end a romantic...

Great view as you go down the road or after you get to the top. Nice to just stop and take a look at the city and the rest of the area surrounding Billings.

An unusual feature of billings and surrounding areas are the sandstone cliffs of the rimrocks. They are not as colorful as some of the Southwestern geological features, but they tell the story of a time when the middle of North America was covered by a vast inland sea. Erosion carves a channel through the sea bed producing cliffs that now... More

There are many places to park and view the city and the mountains to the SW, night or day. Nighttime it's popular as a lover's lane. In the summer if you walk along the Rims be aware that there are ticks, so check yourself afterwards.

I was raised climbing these rimrocks some sixty five years and they will always be a thing of beauty in my eyes. The airport has grown as well of what is there. The rimrocks are as the beautiful city. The majesty of the rimrocks that surround Billings will always be one of the most beautiful sights in the state. There... More

The Rims of Billings are the most noticeable but approachable thing to do in the area. The airport is on top of the rims that look down over the valley where most of Billings lies. You must get out of your car and just walk. There are paved paths that follow a couple miles from east to west. There are... More

This is a must for anyone visiting Billings. Easy on and off the road access. The people in our group who just wanted to sit and enjoy the view needed to walk about 30 feet to sit on the rocks. Others could walk up and down the trails for hours. Only down side is the bathrooms needed attention and were... More

Beautiful view of the city down below. Fall colors really pop in October. I wanted to go here as I read other recommendations. I didn't know that I would stumble upon it on my way to town from the airport. I noticed many cars parked on the side of the road, so I decided to stop on my way in.... More
