Pathways and Trails
The Town of Fort Macleod is nestled into a beautiful prairie landscape, we have multiple walking trails and paths around the Town open for residents and visitors to explore.
River Valley Wilderness Park
One of our more popular trails is the River Valley Wilderness Park, located just off Highway 811, for directions click here. The Old Man River flows just north of town and supports this area and its native plants and animals. Our Wilderness Park is home to a host of wildlife, including beaver, muskrat, white tail, mule deer and an abundance of birds. The occasional moose, bob cat, and bear have also been known to make appearances. The River Valley Wilderness Park has a 2.0km loop, with a little playground located just off the parking lot. Go check out what the Wilderness Park has to offer. Click here to see a map of the trail.
Old Fort Trail
If you are looking for a peaceful walk overlooking the Old Man River with some of Fort Macleod’s history shown the Old Fort Trail is the trail for you. This trail begins on Water Street and goes down to the original Fort Site by the river just northeast of town, this trail is 2.5km. For a map of this trail please click here.
