    Tons to do with your dog

    Get hold of the free BHT trails booklet - there are tons of walks to do with your dog, from short and easy through to strenuous half day hikes. And my dog enjoyed the Wildlife Drive as well, spotting the bison through the car window.

    Awe Inspiring Experience

    We drove wildlife loop with our well behaved, low prey drive (okay no prey drive) pooch. Towards the end hundreds of buffalo were blocking the road grazing with their young. Some came within a foot of the traffic that had stopped to allow them to cross. It was amazing! I think as long as you don’t have a pup that would bark or disturb the Buffalo this is a must do!

    Dogs loved exploring park!

    Lots of great places to stop and let pups out for a break and hike. Our Hope loved wading in creeks!

    Dog loved it!

    Sylvan lake and nearby trails were awesome! Part of the beach is not dog friendly. Lots of wildlife! Doggo loved it!
