This area is a short distance south east of Billings and is a wonderful place to getaway from the City and enjoy the great outdoors. Lots of wildflowers in Spring, wild animals, and terrific views.

Went trail running at Four Dances. It is hot if you go during summer time, bring water. Also, the trails are decently marked, so that is good. They use flags. There are a few big dips and the views over Billings are pretty solid. Again, bring some water and be mindful of stepping on cacti or maybe a snake!

Just minutes from Billings. A Nice hike will take you to the cliffs that look out over the Yellowstone River. Very enjoyable. Even though the freeway is near you would never know it. IT will be a place that I will add to my waliking area

Good place to walk near town and see the native vegetation. There are porta potty type toilets and no water. If it is the least bit warm be sure to bring water. You can stay on fairly level ground or hike a few hundred feet down to the Yellowstone River.

The views are stunning when you hike out to the bluffs, and look out over the Yellowstone River. The other trail down to the river is a serious hike, with a sharp drop in elevation, and a steep climb back up. If you only have time for one trail, stay up on the bluffs. The area is steeped in Native... More

The views are what make this place great, and there are Native American stories that enrich the experience of standing on the spot where momentous events occurred.

We enjoyed hiking in Four Dances RA, climbing up to the ridge line and dropping down toward the river. We were on our way to Yellowstone, and considered this a "warm-up" hike. It definitely got our hiking legs going with the hills, and we enjoyed the views of the Billings area from the clifftops. We got to watch a hawk... More
