This Saskatchewan River coulee is one part of Wanuskewin's treasures. The trail takes you on a discovery tour of First Nations heritage. The views of the river are outstanding, peaceful and transforming. Take an opportunity to visit it is definitely worth your while.

The story of the First Nations in the area ebbs and flows through the trails and the site. With a little imagination you can see the village at the river's edge, and the bison thundering over the buffalo jump

Bison burgers mmmm must try these! This is a great place to spend a few hours. We ate outside on the patio, wandered grasslands and enjoyed an engaging speaker. The big stuffed bison is very realistic lol.
