Little slope in the beginning & easy at the top. Gorgeous views and photo opportunities of the river!! Highly recommend for an easy hike!

I come here several times a week to walk/hike. Saw a small (2 ft+) rattlesnake on the ridge line trail by one of the benches that overlook Billings and the Yellowstone River yesterday morning. Thankfully, for the first time all year, I had brought a walking stick. It came in handy as it took the brunt of the attack as I nearly stepped on the little critter. Rattle was going but I was walking fast with big strides. (And even though it was in the middle of the grassy trail, it REALLY blended in.) I used the stick to move it aside 20ft and then reported it to Lynn the camp host when I got back.

Overall, this is a nice place (close to town) to escape for an hour and stretch your legs. I'll be back time and time again.

This trail is perfect for family with kids. My 6yo and 15 month old had a lot of fun hiking here.

Didn't have much time so took the scenic path rather than the river trail. Easy walk, gorgeous views.

Not far from Billings so it's easy to get to.

Perfect for half day or a short time outside, make it as long or as short as you want. There's one short steep climb up from the river if you choose to go that route so not much hiking, but hilly and nice. Close to Billings with great views. Perfect for snow shoeing in the winter.

Very intense and rugged, but gorgeous views and takes you right to the Yellowstone River.

The first half is well groomed and has some good up hill gains. The second half was a lot of tall grass/weeds with a trail hidden underneath. Great trail for a quick walk away from the city.

Decent trail. Watch for the ant hills. Great views from the top. Took the pups down to the river. Couldn't get all the way down because a ditch was flooded but they were happy to swim there. Heck of a hike back up so be prepared. Will definitely go back.

Lots of trails overlooking the river and town and also through the woods. Plenty of room to explore with some trails rougher than others. Great views!

Good hike for exercise if you take the river view route. Not good view though

Nice evening walk with my parents. We only went to the view point at the top which was about .5mi one way. Beautiful views looking down and easy enough walk!

was nice but trail shown was closed due to Falcon mating season, but back tracked and went the other way and found a good trail that went around the hills and back to parking lot

I've explored Four Dances a few times. There are some wonderful views of Billings, or if you look to the south, of the river. There's some fun geocaches to find, if that's your thing.

it was exciting because it was way more beautiful than it seemed driving to it!

Very pretty views and tons of wildlife. We didn't do the entire descent to the river (probably went about half way down) and my 4 almost 5 year old did very well.

Beautiful rim trails overlooking the Yellowstone River with a strong descent to the river.

Nice trail. A bit hot if you go around noon but really nice views of Billings and the surrounding areas. Not a lot of shade up top but much more at bottom.

It's a great view of Billings from an angle that isn't the Rims. Plus, the legend of the cliffs is pretty interesting. I wouldn't call it a full on hike at all. More like a slightly inclined short walk.

Hike was good! Extremely hot when we went, wishing there was more trees. Otherwise, great! They had just finished the new trail and it was great. Sadly there was a ton of broken glass on the trail.

Great workout on the trail down to the river.

Beautiful views from the top. It's a trek coming up from the river especially with a toddler on your back.

Signs at first are a bit confusing, but two out of the three ways take you where you wanna go. Nice views from the top and long the first part of the trail. Back side of the loop was just ok. Decent hike though
