Nicolle Flats Marsh Boardwalk Interpretive Trail is currently closed. Check out the viewing tower on the Bison View trail as you may see a herd of bison roaming the area.
The park has partnered with local mountain bike clubs including Moose Jaw Pavers to maintain an extensive 30 km network of mountain biking trails. Several national and provincial mountain bike races, including the Canada Cup have been held here. Trails on the south side of Buffalo Pound Lake include the Terminator, Joe's, White Track and the Barrels. A short stretch on pavement brings you to the trail circling Nicolle Flats and heading northwest to the North Shore Trail.
