Medicine Hat is a city in southeastern Alberta, located along the South Saskatchewan River. Best known for its large natural gas fields, it’s also nicknamed "Gas City".
Rudyard Kipling immortalized this city when he visited in 1907 and told the Medicine Hat News, “This part of the country seems to have all hell for a basement, and the only trap door appears to be in Medicine Hat.” His “hell’s basement” euphemism was inspired by the plentiful fuel and natural gas found below this area.

The Medicine Hat landscape is dominated by the river valley. Two tributaries flow into the South Saskatchewan River within the boundaries of the city and have cut a dramatic valley landscape with numerous cliffs, and finger coulees throughout the city. The Red Rock Coulee is the most popular for its unique hiking experience.
