Plan Your Summer Adventure in Montana’s Trailhead
Your perfect summer adventure awaits in Billings Montana’s Trailhead. Home to more than a few spectacular must-sees, Billings is a bucket list destination you’ll be talking about for years to come.
- Beartooth Highway. This scenic pass is the most beautiful gateway to Yellowstone National Park allowing breathtaking vistas and Montana’s highest mountain – Grizzly Peak. Open Memorial Day through Labor Day, visitors will see glacial lakes, mountain meadows and, even in the height of summer, impressive snowpack! This drive will leave you with a memory that will last a lifetime. Don’t miss it.
- Billings Rims. Sandstone bluffs surround the Billings community, varying in height from 300 – 500 feet above the city. These bluffs, affectionately known as the Rims or Rimrocks, offer miles of trails and history and are a favorite among visitors and locals alike. From the top, enjoy a view of five different mountain ranges: Beartooths, Bulls, Pryors, Crazies, and Bighorn Mountains. Adventurers can enjoy biking or hiking along the cliffs, while some may even rappel over the edge or climb the rocks along the trail system! You’ll also take in the spectacular Yellowstone River below. Plan to kayak, fish or simply explore this gem running through town.
- Pictograph Caves, Pompeys Pillar and Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument. Billings is filled with historical beauty nestled alongside outdoor adventure. Pictograph Caves State Park combines easy trails with cave paintings done over 2,000 years ago. Pompeys Pillar National Monument offers the only physical evidence of the Lewis and Clark Expedition – look upon Clark’s signature carved over 200 years ago. At the Battlefield, look upon the same sights General Custer did in 1976 when he made his last stand against Sitting Bull and the Lakota. Adventurers immerse in these historical sites by hiking or walking through them.
