It could be the days when bison and bear roamed the bench, when walls of ice ringed the hills, or when aboriginal families sheltered in the winter forest.
With some direction and a little imagination, the Cypress Hills offer a powerful sense of the past.
Cool breezes, shelter, sunshine and shade made Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park a year-round oasis. Humans have enjoyed the Cypress Hills for over 7,000 years.
In sneakers or in skis; on 2 or 4 wheels, year-round access to this time machine is easy, exciting, and free! Our numerous viewpoints are essential starting points. For those more adventurous, the twists and turns of our trails provide opportunities to see and sense the past. The Cypress Hills time machine awaits!
