Billings, Little Big Horn, and the Montana Plains Sights

First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

For centuries Native Americans hunted bison by stampeding them off a cliff at this 2,000-acre park, which is sacred to the state's original residents. This is one of the largest and best-interpreted buffalo jumps in the United States. The mile-long cliff affords a spectacular view of the Rocky Mountains, the Missouri River, and the plains. An interpretive center focuses on the culture of the Plains Indians before white settlement. You can hike the 1.5-mile-long trail to

the top of the hill where buffalo runners led herds over the cliff to their demise.
