Located 17km east of Estevan, La Roche Percee is a Provincial Historic Site made up of rock layers eroded by wind and water into unusual shapes.

As a place of worship for Indigenous people, the rock formations were once covered with symbolic animal carvings (petroglyphs).

Early western travellers came great distances to see the pierced rock, leaving their initials, but more recent carvings have destroyed much of the work of both the Indigenous people and the explorers.

Although time has dealt harshly with the these formations, La Roche Percee is still an incredible place to step back in time and explore the trails that surround the impressive rock formations.
