Wanderlust | Cochrane Alberta Photographer

If you’ve been to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, you might have went on a little self-guided hike northeast of the museum.  The Badlands Interpretive Trail is a super easy, 1.4 km interpretive loop that is doable for even the littlest of hikers.  If you like to take a stroller on your hikes, it is best left behind for this one.  There are stairs along the trail and it is easier to enjoy this hike on foot or by wearing your tiniest adventurers (this soft structured carrier is my personal hiking favourite).  It can get hot in the badlands, so be prepared with a hat, sunscreen, and some water.

Along the way, there’s some great interpretive signs.  You’ll see cacti, cool rocks, and have great views of the amazing badlands landscape, like this:

The Badlands Interpretative Trail is located within Midland Provincial Park, a day use provincial park in Alberta.
