A visit to the Cypress Hills Intreprovincial Park isn't complete without experiencing the park's "must see" natural attraction, the Conglomerate Cliffs. Located  in the West Block Wilderness Area of the park, just a short drive from Fort Walsh National Historic Site, the cliffs are made up of a combination of gravel and stones known as "cobbles." The exposed edges of the cliffs have been eroded leaving steep banks with millions of pebbles looking like they are encased in concrete. The surrounding hilly slopes are covered in spruce, pine and aspen trees along with a variety of flowers. Great bird and wildlife viewing area.
 
Stop at the Park Visitor Centre in the Centre Block for further information. Refer to park's trail map, West Block and Equestrian, for details.
