Approximately 39 km, the Beechy Sandcastles and Sunken Hill Trail is a driving trail that can also be travelled by foot and bicycle; however, part of the trail will be inaccessible during the winter months and after a rainfall. Along this dirt and gravel trail, you will see breathtaking views of large sand dunes, tipi rings and the famous Sunken Hill, a plateau hill that sank suddenly years ago, exposing cracks on the hillside and providing a truly unique sightseeing experience.

The area is also home to an abundance of wildlife, amphibian and bird species, including elk, prairie falcons, antelope, bull snakes, moose, coyotes, golden eagles, foxes, deer, gophers and sharp-tailed grouse.

Visitors are asked to close all gates behind them as they enter and leave the trail, as it is located on private land.
