5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

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.

I love the Rimrocks view it allows you so see the city on a hole new perspective on Billings. you can see so much more from a higher point of view and its a great spot to go for a walk or a little rock climb.

“Loved the beauty up there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

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 sunrise or sunset when the lighting is stunning. A must see!

“Nice Overlook”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

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.

“A complete waste of time”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

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, there's one paved trail that leads 50 yards out to a monument to the Zimmermen Brothers. From there you are left to a hodgepodge of unmaintained dirt paths that spread out in several directions. There is no signage or discernible loop. The entire park is littered with broken glass - a mind-boggling amount actually. The Billings Parks Dept or whoever maintains this area should be embarrassed!! Finally, while it is true that the Rimrocks provide a panoramic vista to take in Billings, may of the scenic Vistas have phone and power lines directly in your line of sight.

This place is a complete waste of time.

** PET OWNERS - lots of glass, foxtails and rattlesnakes **
