How to get there

Fort Walsh National Historic Site is located 55 km southwest of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, off the Trans Canada Highway. From Highway #1, proceed into the town of Maple Creek turning west (right) at the first intersection after the railway tracks. Follow Pacific Avenue west to Highway #21. Turn south (left) and continue to the Maple Creek Union Hospital. Make a right turn at the Maple Creek Union Hospital onto Highway #271. Travel 3km west of Maple Creek then turn left at the Fort Walsh directional sign. Continue south on the #271 highway and watch for signs leading you directly to the historic site. The #271 highway is a paved, all-weather road.

For those travelling from the south or southeast, either take Highway #13 to the junction of the #21 Highway and then proceed to Maple Creek, or travel north on the #615 grid watching for directional signs, which will lead you directly to the historic site.
