This is a great in town walk. I would never call it a hard hike, more moderate in my eyes. Many different trails to enjoy that run into each other

Nice and mellow if you want it to be, but can be technical and challenging. Pick good lines and go before it gets hot. Awesome place but easy to spend more time than anticipated.

Great trail with mix of landscapes and views. I couldn't follow it exactly as posted and got lost for about an hour. Went on a weekday and only saw two other parties.

Nice quiet trails. These trails are more for mountain biking but still work great for hiking or running. I would say these are more on the moderate side hiking wise than hard. I’m guessing it’s rated hard for bikers. Beautiful views.

This is one of my favorite hikes! it's very quiet, and you wouldn't think that it would be, being as close to Billings as it is. I feel like it's still sort of a hidden gem.

The best you're going to find in the immediate Billings vicinity. Good for mountain biking, trail running, or hiking. Lots of different trails you can weave together to make a longer or shorter day.

So many ways to go & varying degrees of difficulty. We love heading out here in the spring and fall.

Great trail that winds in and out of trees, sets you atop vistas with Beartooth Mountains and surrounding views, lots of topography. Great for biking, running or hiking. Best spot in Billings, for sure.

Great trail with lots of options for riding degrees. Technical portions, speedy downhill portions and lots of cross country. Choose your line and make your ride as technical, or as scenic as you please.
