Jim Dutcher Trail Description

The Jim Dutcher Trail offers 6.5 miles of paved pathway along the Yellowstone River through eastern Billings up to the northeastern neighborhoods of Billings Heights.

Along the way, the trail is dotted with community parks. Begin your journey in wooded Two Moon Park and meander south through Earl Guss Park with its man-made waterfall, followed by Coulson Park and Mystic Park, where the trail ends.

For a little more riding or walking, you can connect to the Alkali Creek Trail on the northern half of the trail, near Earl Gus Park.

Parking is available within the parks along the trail (north to south):

  • Two Moon Park (Two Moon Park Road)
  • Earl Gus Park (Bench Boulevard and Lake Elmo Drive)
  • Coulson Park (Charlene Street, north of the NW Energy Plant)
  • Mystic Park (Buena Vista Avenue and Belknap Avenue)
