the rims - TRAIL

the rims - Trail, Billings, Montana

I add this entry because these are trails found along the other side of zimmerman trail road so they are not really obvious to people who would only go to the park, and they offer a lot more to the zimmerman park experience. They are long intertwining mostly single-track dirt trails with large bits of hard and wide sandstone pathways. The terrain is constantly switching between the two and varied and diverse, somewhat technical in spots but also the middle path is so easy and so relaxing. It's always a good trail to "fall back on" for some exciting day-rides and it needed to be pointed out to people who may not be locals and may not know of it. Parking is accessible in many spots all along the highway on top of the rims.

This is an awesome set of trails, no end realy to where you can go. This summer i rode it every day i possibly could. It is a good trail for both beginners and more advanced riders. Theres a little bit of packing involved sometimes, it all depends on how many levels down you go and where you want to go up. It offers a great learning environment for the beginner, and rarely do you encounter anyone else on the trail.

This trail ranges from singletrack to solid and bumpy rock sections. It's ok for someone wanting to put a few miles in on a ride, but it is best when combined with Swords park (decent downhills for Billings) and/or ZImmerman Park (relatively flat, but has several fun trails and small to large drops). On its own,it's not that exciting.

This used to be a really kick ass trail. Unfortunatly a couple years ago a richy rich bought a big chunck of the land that the best part of the trail goes through and closed it off to the public. If you have big ones and can climb a bobwire fence it is still sweet and now kind of untouched. But beware I have actually had a guy with a video camera chase me and try to get my face so he could get me for traspassing. When you get to the bottom of the big flat and climb the last hill there is a great 50-60 degree 150' drop with a jump on the other side. But be careful of the big yuka it tends to jump out and get you. good luck

go to zimmerman park and head west on the top single track trail. Follow it as you will because there are trails that lead off of it to the lower and middle trails. When you get to the end turn around and take a different one back.
