Along the foothills of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains is a narrow band of mixed forests and grasslands known for its moderate climate, a wide variety of wildlife species and broad ecological diversity. This attracted First Nations peoples to the area hundreds of years ago. Alberta ranching families first settled the territory in the 1880s and transformed the rolling grasslands into cattle country. There’s plenty to do along The Cowboy Trail. Stay at a guest ranch or working ranch. Experience a trail ride with an outfitter into some of Alberta’s prettiest country.
