People hunting game most likely traveled this ridge, which provided a dry route above the lake-dotted prairie for thousands of years.

The earliest inhabitants of this region hunted woolly mammoths and musk-ox. Beginning with the dominance of prairie about 9,000 years ago, bison and elk provided new sources of food, clothing and furs.

Red Rock Ridge

Ahead of you is a part of Red Rock Ridge, a series of quartzite outcroppings fringing the eastern edge of the "Coteau des Prairies." Named by early French explorers, the Coteau-meaning hill or knoll-is a high bedrock plateau sculpted by glaciers and once covered by prairie.
