This was an informative and interesting stop for us and the view was very good. We were able to see across the river to another viewing area and once discovering that, our one trip turned into two as we had to check it out from the other side. Definitely a great stop and worth a look!

This was just beautiful. We took lots of pictures, hiked around the trails. It was a great place to take my visiting friend from Germany.

We spent 2 hours walking the trails down to the bottom and finding a few rabbit trails to go down. Great place for exploring and adventure. Need good shoes with good traction. Not too many tourists like in other places in Drumheller in the summer

Horsethief canyon offers you the chance to hike and go for a walk. It's quite easy to do it. It's a must see as long as you don't expect to see Grand Canyon. It really is a miniature canyon, but the view is stunning.

We viewed the canyon and hiked down from the scenic lookout west of Drumheller. Very interesting geography and geology. You can understand why the Sundance Kid and other outlaws sought refuge amongst the myriad and maze like canyons and hoodoos. You also get a good feel of earth's history by seeing all the different layers of the geology. Read up... More

Definitely make a stop here to take pictures and soak up the view! From here you can see the valley and the splendour that God created!

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.
