SO MUCH TO DISCOVER
Explore Foothills Country
The Royal Duke Hotel’s central location in Olde Towne Okotoks provides a great starting point to discover Foothills Country.
Get out and explore nature, attend a community event, do some shopping, discover a new restaurant, take in a game and experience our local arts & culture.
To help you plan your visit, check out the many local attractions listed below.
Sheep River Valley
We have over 7 km of paved walking/biking paths along the Sheep River to explore … just footsteps away from our front door.
Our eponymous Big Rock (also called the Okotoks Erratic and named by the Blackfoot as Okotok) is a stunningly huge erratic boulder that lies on an otherwise flat prairie location just off Highway 7 about 10 km away.
