The Cypress Hills are the highest elevations between the Rocky Mountains and Labrador. Located on the Alberta/Saskatchewan border, they are rich in history. The Medicine Lodge Lookout was originally erected in 1967 as a 100, steel tower with a round crows nest cab. Dismantled in 1993, it was reestablished as a 20’ tower in memory of Forest Officer Thomas N. Trott.
