The park provides visitors the opportunity to discover the traditions and everyday lives of First Nations people who gathered to hunt bison and collect food and herbs. The park's trail system is over 6 km and travels past bison kill sites, tipi rings, medicine wheels and camping areas.

The main trail, the Path of the People, breaks into three separate trails and encompasses over 6 km of the park. It winds down into the valley and through interpretive signs, tells the story of the valley, the prairies and the First Nations people.

The Trail of Discovery leads north off the main trail and focuses on the science of archaeology and how the First Nations people lived in the past. While travelling along the trail, hikers may see archaeologists from the University of Saskatchewan hard at work at an excavation site.

The Trail of the Buffalo heads up onto the east prairie and offers visitors a magnificent view of the land and the South Saskatchewan River. As you look down below, where the Opimihaw Creek and the South Saskatchewan River meet, take a moment to imagine the fire-lit camps and the activity as the day draws to an end - hear the children as they play and smell the evening meal being prepared.

The Circle of Harmony begins in the valley and heads onto the south prairie and leads hikers to the circles of the tipi rings and the medicine wheel site. The importance of the circle and respect for Mother Earth are two stories told along this trail.
