We took our 2 boys (6 & 11) on the Paradise Ridge full day trip. The trip was exactly as described. We visited the mine site, had lunch at the cabin at Paradise Mine and climbed to the top of the mountain (low gear in 4x4) to 9000'. Absolutely stunning views. No room for any careless behaviour on this trip! Our boys LOVED the time in the mud pits. Plan on getting very dusty, and a bit muddy if you play in the pits. Suggest bringing your own rubber boots or shoes you don't mind getting dirty. The views were amazing. A deer jumped down the mountain across our path. No bear sightings but our guide Mike was amazing. We asked lots of questions and he was able to answer them all and more. Very knowledgeable. The other guide - Darren - was in this season's Amazing Race Canada. Absolutely worth the money and drive from Banff.
