Natural History

For visitors to Eagle Point Provincial Parks and Blue Rapids Provincial Recreation Area, there is much to do by being outdoors, doing activities such as hiking, canoeing, archery, skiing, bird watching and wildlife viewing. There is also an incredible world to explore in the parks and much to learn. Self-guided nature learning is available on several of the trails

The Pembina Rotary Community South Trails are located just adjacent to the east side of Drayton Valley. The 7 km of trails are well travelled and border the North Saskatchewan River Valley. Stay above the embankment or hike down to the flats. Bring your mobile device with QR Code Scanner and turn your hike into an interpretative adventure.

The Hilltop and Hillside Trails. Located on the east side of the North Saskatchewan River, these trails meander up and down the steep terrain of the North Saskatchewan River embankments. Hiking these trails promises to be a heart pumping experience. Bring your mobile device with your QR Code Scanner to turn the Hilltop Trail into an interpretative experience.
