South Hills Motorcycle Area

Saturday, December 23, 2023

Other Names

Yellowstone River, Old Blue Creek Road

Last Known StatusOpen

Open to dirt bikes only, this 700 acre area has many miles of trails, several play areas and many steep hill climbs. The riding area is open from 7am to 9pm daily year-round.

Parking is limited and has only one main access point which is very steep but provides access to the remaining trails. The land is owned and operated by the BLM but is adjacent to the Billings Motorcycle Club which hosts many events throughout the year.
