Fresh snow on Sat Dec 12th. Hiked the deer trails between the main trail down to the river, and the east facing rims. As always quiet and beautiful. Tried to post some pictures though, for some reason they never get posted. Not sure what I’m doing wrong, used to have no problem. I’ll give All Trails 1 star in that department.

Some people say the trail is not well marked, but it is a loop - so just don't follow the dried up creek beds! Be prepared for all up hill on the way back. Fun spot to take my 17.5 year old dog. Beautiful views.

X. Went for a quiet walk during lightly falling snow on Wednesday Nov 11th. Took the main trail towards the river, then cut off through the forested area back towards the trail that winds it’s way along the high rims that face south. So beautiful!

I rate this short hike a 3/5 stars because of how poorly marked it is once you reach the river level. I was very immersed in nature for a while as I was pushing through brush up to my knees to find the trail. There are some views “that rock” making this one worth the quick trip if you want to get out into nature. There is only one short stretch that is steep on the return hike. You will still hear Billings, but it’s easy to get lost in the beauty of the great outdoors.

We are VERY inexperienced and didn’t make it all the way to the river, but we are loving our new hiking adventures.

HikingGreat!

Hiked it with my 4 daughters (19, 14, 11 and 8) and our 14 year old dog. We really enjoyed the hike. Had to hold our old lady pooch on parts of the in and then a lot of the way out as it’s a pretty extreme climb back up for a senior dog. Saw a rattlesnake curled up and resting under a rock. He seemed too hot/tired to care that we were walking by.

Pretty decent trail overall! It stinks that from the Southeast side, Billings looks like Detroit and Oakland had an ugly child, but a great vantage point nonetheless. Only a couple decent views from the trail of the city but it’s for the better. Down at the very bottom when the trail makes a split, take a left; the right side doesn’t end up anywhere besides the woods. The left side has a little bit of overgrowth, but not too bad. Some great skipping rocks at the bottom near the river including one that I threw that’s still probably skipping as we speak. The walk back up is the only somewhat difficult part but it’s still not bad. I recommend hiking with a partner, I didn’t see or hear any snakes but it seems like a haven for them around there. Overall a good workout and time killer, I would do it again.

View from the cliff is nice, as is the view from the river. Everything else in between is meh. Once you get to the river, I'd suggest returning the same way you came. The second half of the mini-loop returning from the river was very overgrown

Great trail. Fun hike. Incline on the way back up from the riverbed is no joke! Once you hike down the mountain, the trail is a little overgrown, so be prepared for that.

Great trail and dog friendly. the trail might be little steep for some, but gets you right down onto the river.

Great trail close to Billings. Also known as Sacrifice Cliff. Fantastic views! You can choose a few diff loops of trail. I walked about 6 miles total. There is also an old cabin that Wil James stayed in that was neat to see. Lots of grasshoppers but never saw any snakes. Also saw many planes passing over on the way to the airport.

It is a very pretty trail. Steep going down to the river with loose rocks and dirt but didn't have any problem staying on my feet. Towards the river where the grass was thicker, I found ticks everywhere. I had to keep pulling them off my pants. Be careful when you get to the grass area near the river.

Beautiful view of Billings. Steep at the beginning, but nice easy trail on top.

Nice hike if you live near Billings. Some areas lack shade so can be hot. Steep area going down to the river and hard to get back up if you have little kids with you. Brings lots of water and snacks as incentives. ;)

I’ve done this hike a few times & I love it! Get to see over Billings and the yellow stone river. It def can get icy and muddy during the winter but I love all the overlooks! Easy to follow trail too.
