Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park
Dry Island Buffalo Jump is a little-known secret gem in the Alberta Parks system. Located near Trochu, the Park offers breathtaking scenic views of the Red Deer river valley. A favorite spot for nature enthusiasts and bird watchers, the area boasts over 150 different species of birds, from warblers to turkey vultures. This Park is day-use only, but picnic sites with firepits are available. The hand boat launch provides access to paddlers who are keen to experience the badlands from the water. Hike on informal trails that wind through the coulees and native grasslands and take note of the sensitive plants that grow along the way. The access road into the Park is closed during wet weather.
