      Buffalo Pound Provincial Park, near Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, is home to one of mountain biking’s best kept secrets. The same glacial period that helped shape the Rocky Mountain’s towering peaks carved its way through Southern Saskatchewan, leaving the expansive Qu’Appelle Valley, which is home to the hidden gem that is Buffalo Pound. Over 30 km of well-marked, fast, and flowy trails grace the steep valleys that make up the park. Once inside the park, beginner to expert riders alike will be excited to see rolling, steep sided hills surrounding them. Individual trails are generally short in length, but linking trails together in natural loops gives riders a wide variety of trails in one location. It is not uncommon to see a cactus on some of the dry hilltops at the same time you may spot a beaver building a dam in the wetlands in the valley bottom.

      The best place to start your ride is in the Lower Chalet area where you will find the trailhead map, outhouse style restrooms and potable water. Camping is available at the trailhead and there are full service sites available nearby. The full service campsites have direct access to the Lower Chalet trailhead via Joe’s Loop and Rankin’s, ensuring that wherever you set up camp, you will have great riding right out your front door.

      Buffalo Pound Trails are at their best in spring and fall when the dense brush that grows in the valley is thinner. An increased maintenance schedule provided by park employees and local volunteers ensures that the long days of summer will provide superb riding conditions in the hot, dense vegetation months as well. One thing that is predictable is sunshine, as Southern Saskatchewan boasts an average of 321 days of sunshine per year.
