Great place to view Billings.

Really nice park that sits above the city. So glad they didn't allow it to be developed for housing.

If you've been to places in Utah probably you won't find this very impressive. Drive up was pretty. Apparently there have been car break-ins as there was a big warning sign the day I went there.

You get a decent view of Billings from on top of the Rimrocks, but, of course, you get a better view driving along Rimrock Road below. The top is a decent walking trail. Better off driving along Rimrock Road and parking in the Montana State University parking lot for views of the cliffs.

When we put Rimrocks in Google map, it put us in a nice neighborhood at a vacant lot with a great view, The real views were back on the main road. Great views of Billings and plenty of parking spots along the road. It is amust do in Billings and it can take 15 minutes or as long as you... More

We happened upon The Rimrocks by accident. We were driving around the beautiful city of Billings and became lost. Our natural tendency when lost is to head for higher ground. At the top of Rimrock Road, across from the airport is a small parking lot. The nice thing about this well used and maintained walking trail is that you don't... More

Don't follow the directions as on trip advisor- it takes you to the bottom of the Rim and in a housing development. Go on the main upper road to Zimmerman park or up Zimmerman Trail. Not much walking to do but a must do to experience the view

We enjoyed the view...but it was hot and didn't walk too far. Offers a nice view of the area and some nice walking paths. We only walked a little way, but it would be nice to go further.

We drove up to the rimrocks thinking it was going to be more of a hiking area than what it was. It does offer a nice view of the city, but it's more like a flat bike path type of trail along the top and just not what we were really expecting. Good spot of you're just looking for a... More

If visiting Billings, I highly recommend going to the Rimrocks, especially at night. If you drive along the Airport Road, you will see spectacular views of the city. A must if in Billings.
