“Great Views”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

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.

“AMAZING VIEW OF BILLINGS FROM THE RIMROCKS”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

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 along the bluffs or drive down the very narrow road. Stop at the grave of Yellowstone Kelly and read about his adventurous life on the large informational sign. A huge cement slab marks his grave. It seems like the marker was missing.

The view of the Billings Plateau is stunning and there is a nice walking trail along the rimrocks. If you are afraid of heights, stay well away from the edge. There is no fence between you and the long drop to the bottom. The location is perfect for a visit if you are in Billings and you can visit anytime during the time. It is literally in front of LOGAN AIRPORT. My flight was delayed by 2 hours so I simply walked out the airport, carefully crosses the street and I walked along the Rimrocks. The location is incredibly convenient and the view is an absolute must see in Billings.

“Great views!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Great views of Billings. Best views of the sunset in Billings. The running trails are new and extremely popular. Rain or shine this is a great place to visit for a fantastic view of the Magic City.

“See the views of the city”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

North of town, adjacent to the airport, highway 3 traverses the rimrock view of the city. It is a place you need to drive in day or night. Take the Zimmerman road if it is open.

“Go to Zimmerman Park for a walk with views”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We drove up to Zimmerman Park on the rimrocks for walk. The park is simply a network of trails on the Billings rimrocks. It is a great place for an easy stroll or a scamper around the sandstone rock formations.
