  • Cypress Hill West Block (Alberta) sector of the Reesor Lake. From there, we made a small stop to be a part of the TransCanada Trail. I was really happy to be able to walk on this famous road which is the network of recreational trails the longest in the world! We have made a few kilometers before resuming our path. It was a very interesting place, on the one hand you climbed a mountain giving us a view of a forest mix and crossing fields small gray shrubs from one peculiar smell, on the other hand, we were walking on a great plain, or could be seen to kilometres on the horizon. With a temperature perfect, what could be better, it was beautiful! I'll always remember these first moments on this road. Spruce Coulee Campground. From this place, we walked on the 2km of the Lake Side Trail trail that wind through forests of spruce and pine along the west shore of the Reservoir Spruce Coulee. This trail is well laid out and is easy to do. We absolutely had to do the Summit top of the Cypress Hills. So we headed to the village of Elkwater to a short stop at the visitors center. We took the Horseshoe Canyon Trail. This trail starts at the campsite Old Baldy. The trail is supported and quickly begins to rise. It's a good way to work his cardio. So, we walk on an abandoned road through fields of mixed forests. We quickly hit a plateau in the last km. Rendering at 1450 m above sea level, we could see the view of the Horseshoe Canyon. There are still a lot to do... Cypress Hills Center Block

  • Haven't been there in years but I still remember that trip. Great natural wonder area. Well worth visiting here.
  • Sooooo much to explore!! I find new trails every time we head out there! Haven't had a chance to see the fort when open yet, but we walked around the area and it looks like a fun place!
  • Gorgeous area with tons to do, lots of hikes to go on, and wildlife to see! Campgrounds are all fantastic.
  • The campground was full of garbage when arrived! When complained in the visitor center, I got the snotty look from a young girl and she was very rude. The next day someone cleaned the fire pit which was full of garbage from beginning of the season. That's all they did to clean the campground. I left the next day and will NEVER EVER return this park. Also, the road to the park - tar was melted and the outside of my vehicle was full of it, had to take it to the dealer to get it professionally cleaned.
  • This is a great place to go for camping, or a day trip. There are a few beaches to play & swim, there's mini golf, water sports, tons of well-marked trails for every skill level including gentle strolls all the way to advanced hikers. Just be aware of wildlife, including cougars.
