Nice stroll through a forest, for occasional glimpses of lakes. Great for bird watching. If going in summer bring lots of bug spray, as well as sun tan lotion as open areas can get quite hot. On the trail you may see bison, elk deer and birds.Show more

Hayburger Trail is named after a family that homesteaded in the park until the 1930s. The trail crosses a black spruce bog where boreal birds and moose may be observed. The trail also winds through open aspen forest and meadows, the preferred habitat of the plains bison. Remain on the trail as there are hidden areas of quicksand in some of the large meadows. The minimal elevation gain on this trail makes for a gentle hike (from Parks Canada). The loop starts after 1.45km. Be careful not to start over the loop after getting finishing the loop.Show more
