Explore the most popular Bird Watching trails in Dinosaur Provincial Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

The view is really nice, the trail doesn’t has the educational boards at the moment.

Really easy nice trail. Good for kids too but make sure you have water with you!

Beautiful trail, we started walking down in the canyon and made our way up. We saw deer and enjoyed walking along the meandering creek. Some tricky and steeper sections and halfway where we had to climb up we lost the trail. The view at the viewpoint is breathtaking. Trail can be tricky and will probably be slippery when it rains.

Should be rated as easy. It’s just a walk around the viewpoint - unless you go off-roading and go down into the canyon a bit- there was a trail to and from the campground

Super fun little walk! We parked at the parking lot and walked up. You can explore all around. There are a lot of beautiful view points around here as Well. Nice family friendly hike!

We liked this one better. We extended it by venturing all over the coulees. You can easily spend an afternoon out here! Bring lots of water and SPF!

Cute little hike that took about 20 minutes. Go early in the morning because it heats up and it is sooo hot in the later afternoon.

Okay trail. Nothing to write home about. It may have been better if we had not gone in the evening. We decided to go when it was cooler out, but we were literally eaten alive by mosquitoes! It was so bad we started running the rest of the way back to the car and by the time we got back, my son and I had about 12 mosquito bites between the two of us. View....what view! Really though....nothing particularly outstanding on this walk.

We parked at the Badlands Trail parking lot and walked up and back around. It was a nice little stroll. Make sure you have water for your dog(s), as there’s nothing available to them!

Started the walk at the parking lot for the badlands trail. Nice little stroll.

My two daughters age 7 and 10 and I hiked this last weekend. They loved it, they terrain is an easy hike, it was short and sweet with information all along the hike and lots to explore.

The views!!!!

We never really found this loop however there are a lot of trails all around the park and you can easily make your own adventure. We had lots of fun doing this and didn’t find it was boring in any way despite it not being an actual loop. Highly recommend this park! Very beautiful and unique hiking.

Very fun to explore in the hoodoos, bring bug spray!!!

Inside of the driving loop it is open for public to freely explore. Lots of paths and side trails to take. Beautiful!

Accessible trail through bush and cottonwood trees. A variety of birds in the area and a lookout over Red Deer river.

A nice walk through the badlands. Fairly easy and quick. Other than a set of stairs, could take a stroller with you.

Very good location to see Rock Wrens. The landscape sometimes feels other-worldly, or moonscape perhaps, but with some semi-familiar plant life to keep some connection with Earth
