This is a very significant site for the Blackfoot is that it preserves an astonishing assemblage of original pictographs showing scenes and symbols having relevance to their lives and experiences. They still use it as a source of insight and wisdom.
The valley of the Milk River at this point is lined on both sides with a spectacular array of hoodoos, and it is among these that the pictographs are to be found, still in their original locations. The best of them can only be seen on one of the guided tours offered by the park, but there are plenty of others that are generally accessible. We took a tour, which was well worthwhile.
Although we were day visitors, we noted that there's an excellent campsite at the park. There are a number of trails that take you among the hoodoos and past some of the more accessible pictographs. Some of the trails are definitely not wheelchair-accessible, but others may be. Sturdy footwear is recommended - flip-flops won't suffice!
Even if you don't plan to do any hiking, there are some great drive-to viewpoints from which you can get a good feel for the extremely scenic location. These's also a very informative visitor center and gift shop. All in all, we had a great day!!
