Severe wind event in Prince Albert National Park

A recent severe wind event in Saskatchewan has caused several trees to fall in Prince Albert National Park. As a result hiking trails within the park may be obstructed by fallen trees. Travel on some trails may be difficult.

Trail crews are currently working hard to clear fallen trees and clear these trails.

Contact the Prince Albert National Visitor Centre for more information.
