Toured around here last November. Great outdoor walk, lots to see. A good, safe walking trail throughout the forested area. Nice that they have educational signs along the way that describe the area or view.

You can take a bus as far as Kenaston and McGillivray, but then you would have to walk 15-20 minutes to get to Fort Whyte.
