“Beautiful”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The view from here is quite stunning. Kind of like a small version of the Grand Canyon. Totally worth the drive to check it out though.

“Drumheller”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Recently spent a weekend there going to the Atlas Coal mine, the Hoodoos, taking in the breathtaking view of Horse Thief Canyon, ferrying across the river and sightseeing all the Dino's downtown. We then had an absolutely fabulous dinner at a Greek restaurant.

“Takes your breathe away”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Within a short walk from the parking lot to the edge of the canyon, the view is spectacular. You can close your eyes and easily image the horses running through the canyon, many years ago. You can also understand the name, the horse rustlers used to run stolen horses through the canyon undetected from the US, to sell them in Alberta.

“awesome views of the badlands”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

easy to drive, you can walk if you have the time but still can see lots by viewing. It is amazing to see what the Red Deer river carved out so many years ago. A must see if you come to Alberta.
