William A. Switzer  Provincial Park

William A. Switzer Provincial Park is a lovely, uncrowded alternative to the Rocky Mountain national parks. It is nestled in the foothills 21 kilometres northwest of Hinton on Highway 40. Switzer Park encompasses more than 63 square kilometres and is relatively undisturbed with lots of wildlife. Pine, spruce and aspen forests surround the park's chain of five small lakes.
