Hairy Hill is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada within the County of Two Hills No. 21.[1] It is located on Highway 45, approximately 102 kilometres (63 mi) east of Edmonton.

Hairy Hill got its name from the large amount of buffalo hair found on the hills in the area when the Canadian Pacific Railway founded the hamlet in the early 20th century.[2]
