Take a hike!
Wander through grasslands ablaze with wildflowers. Stroll along a forest path lined by two-metre high ferns. Watch the rising sun bathe wild badlands with a crimson glow. Pause for a rest atop the Hidden Conglomerate Cliffs with magnificent views over the Cypress Hills. Saskatchewan's Best Hikes & Nature Walks by Robin and Arlene Karpan, will guide you to these and over 100 other adventures.
Discover Saskatchewan's most exciting places to hit the trails, from easy strolls to challenging backcountry expeditions. The 272-page guidebook is packed with details on where to go, how to get there, and what you need to know to plan your hikes. Amble through tranquil islands of nature in the midst of the city or explore untamed wilderness with no one else around. Experience every region of Saskatchewan, from the deep south to the far north, with scenic river valleys, rare native prairie, internationally famous wetlands, forested lakelands, drifting dunes, and rugged Canadian Shield.
Make the 20-km pilgrimage to Grey Owl's Cabin. Follow in the footsteps of John Franklin, Alexander Mackenzie, and countless voyageurs on the historic Methye Portage trail. Feel your heart pound and feet sink as you struggle up the knife-edge crest of Canada's largest sand dunes. Challenge yourself with Saskatchewan's longest hike - the spectacular 120-km Boreal Trail. If that sounds a bit too vigorous, don't worry; there’s something for everyone. Most hikes follow well marked and maintained trails suitable for anyone with average ability and experience. Whether you prefer an hour's stroll along an easy path or a week in remote backcountry, there's never been a better time to take a hike.
