Alberta Fossil Trail

Our province is renowned for its dramatic landscapes and rich fossil heritage. In order to share some of Alberta’s more significant scientific history, the Royal Tyrrell Museum worked with strategic partners to identify and interpret nine of the province’s richest palaeontological sites. The result, Alberta’s Fossil Trail, spans more than 2500 km.

Here’s a glimpse into the stories the trail holds. Download the Alberta's Fossil Trail Map now and set out on your very own prehistoric journey. Adventure awaits!

This project was done in collaboration with Alberta Tourism, Parks & Recreation and Travel Alberta.
