The Milk River Canyon is located in southeastern Alberta some 62 mi (100 km) east of the town of Coutts (Fig. 1). Access to a valley overlook by passenger caron paved and unpaved county roads is relatively easy and requires no permissions to cross private land, but the easternmost unpaved section of road (beyond Black Butte, Fig. 2 is to be avoided if wet. The canyon itself is not visible until the overlook on its rim is reached. The map (Fig. 2 shows readily recognizable points on the route from Coutts and indicates distances between conspicuous landmarks. As is customary, barbed wire gates, if encountered, should be left as found: open if open, closed if closed. There are no services available east of Coutts, so gas tanks should be comfortably filled.
