      Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park spans the borders of two provinces - Alberta and Saskatchewan, and includes Fort Walsh National Historic Site of Canada.
      Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park - Alberta has over 50 kilometres of trails for hiking and mountain biking, varying in difficulty. A paved wheelchair accessible trail along the lakeshore offers great waterfowl viewing opportunities from its boardwalk areas. The rest of the trails are in natural form with easily accessible trailheads. Trail guides are available from the Visitor Centre or businesses in Elkwater.
      With its unique climate and mix of montane forests, wetlands and grasslands, it is home to an astonishing diversity of plants and animals. More orchids grow in these hills than anywhere else on the prairies. At least 18 species have been recorded here. Over 220 bird species, 47 mammal species, and several species each of reptiles and amphibians – Cypress Hills is a wild and wonderful place
