Drumheller Badlands are an hour and a half drive north-east of Calgary, Alberta.
The Badlands at Drumheller, Alberta, Canada is a fascinating area, rich in mining history and perhaps best known for the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology located on the North Dinosaur Trail.
The hamlet of Wayne is just south-east of Drumheller. Dropping from the prairies into the Red Deer River Valley is like visiting another planet. There are many opportunities here to hike through the badlands and abandoned mining sites.
The Badlands in the East Coulee near Drumheller is always a good trip alternative west of Calgary, Alberta.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is located on the North Dinosaur Trail a short drive northwest of Drumheller.
And then, back to hiking in the very beautiful Badlands in Horseshoe Canyon. Further northwest of the Royal Tyrrell Museum on North Dinosaur Trail there are outstanding and unique hiking opportunities in Horse Thief Canyon.
