Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump is one of the world's oldest and best-preserved Buffalo Jumps. Known for its remarkable testimony of prehistoric life, the site bears witness to a custom practiced by indigenous people of the North American plains for nearly 6,000 years. With its elaborate drive lane complex and deep archaeological deposits still intact, Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump was designated a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1981. The Interpretive Center features 7 levels built into the sandstone cliffs. Hiking trails below and above the cliff.
