This site is home to Alberta's only population of mountain goats outside the Rocky Mountain Natural Region. These goats are very sensitive to disturbance, especially during the kidding period (May until July) There are moose, white-tailed deer and elk in the area, as well as a variety of foothills bird species. Pinto Creek is a deep canyon through soft sandstone hills.Stream erosion has maintained a series of steep cliff faces along parts of the valley, thus providing ideal habitat for the area's mountain goats! There are also hoodoo formations in the area. The area's cliffs consist of loose sandstone and rocky outcrops surrounded by a forested lodgepole pine and white spruce, Labrador tea and mosses are found in the undergrowth as well as grasses such as bluejoint,hairy wild rye and shrubs such as buffalo berry and wolf willow. An amazing hidden away and very lightly visited region....a must see for those that wish to be away from the "maddening crowds" and be one with nature!
