Hiking at Fort Walsh


Discover Fort Walsh's scenic trails!

The Métis Trail located at the picnic site is perfect for the entire family. This tranquil trail winds along the beautiful Battle Creek. Wheelchair and stroller friendly.

Looking for something more adventurous? Then try the Backcountry Trail. This 5KM loop trail will lead you to the Cypress Hills Massacre National Historic Site. The air sweet with the scent of pine and an alpine-like carpet of fescue prairie wildflowers at your feet.

If you find the 2.5 KM Backcountry Trail too taxing once you arrived, no worries, you can take the much easier 2.5 KM access road back to the fort.

See if you can find the Parks Canada Red Chairs on a short and steep, er, sweet trail offering magnificent views of the fort and hills.
