Swords Rimrock Park and Black Otter Trail is considered the gateway to the beautiful city of Billings. This in-town escape provides breathtaking views, historic icons, paved recreational trails, and a Billings experience that should not be missed. Enjoy 2 miles of paved trail in the park, and have the option to embark upon the leisurely 5 mile ride to the Yellowstone river.

History of Swords Rimrock Park: George Sword’s deeded rim top land to Billings in the late 1920s and early 1930s, and the city changed the name of the park to “Swords Rimrock Park.” The road that ran through it completed in 1938, was named in honor of late Crow Indian Chief Black Otter. Black Otter was killed in 1861 and laid to rest near the high point of the park, near the present location of Yellowstone Kelly’s grave.

Take in breathtaking views of the city from atop the Rimrocks. It’s an unforgettable experience.
