The three prominent, glacially created, coulee bottoms you’ll traverse have created an inviting habitat for bison which tend to linger in this area. One of the most challenging trails within the park, be prepared for exposure, wind, unstable footing and ‘feeling small’ in a big landscape, just like the lonely Manitoba Maple standing sentinel.

*Special Note: Bison occasionally scratch on the trail markers knocking them down. Be aware of your surroundings, wildlife and use your orienteering skills.
