I first learned about this medicine wheel 25 years ago in university and have wanted to visit it ever since. There are many medicine wheels and cairns scattered across the plains but mostly in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. This one is the most well known and well preserved.
The walk up to the wheel will take 25-30 minutes if you are fit. There is a park ranger at the wheel who can answer you questions.
The day I went I was the only one at the wheel. With the isolation, the fantastic view and only the sound of the wind it is quite a spiritual experience.
