Not very large canyon, but worth to be seen. If you past by, it is a must to stop and spend few minutes to look the area. It is very nice and interesting to see.

I travelled to the Horse Thief Canyon Lookout for some photos. There are trails to go into the valley, but I didn’t have my hiking boots on at the time. The lookout can get very windy.

We were there on a sunny day. It doesn't take long to travel but it is an excellent place to take pictures.

Horsethief Canyon is located about 10 minutes outside of Drumheller. Very scenic outlook of the canyon. Worth the trip out to see it.

Great view. It is 18 km from Drumheller, I’ve submitted a change but the location on trip advisor was incorrect ( if it shows before the Tyrrell museum it’s incorrect. ) good look at the unique geographical formations in the badlands.

This was our highlight of the day. I prefer it to the other canyon you can go to. My kids really enjoyed the ground animals.

As a local, I prefer this site to the Horseshoe Canyon! Not only does it have less tourists, but it's much better for a scenic view. You can hike around this one, as opposed to the other canyon. It's great for photography, site-seeing, and letting...More

Scampered over hills and rocks on a late June evening with barely anyone there. Need to keep a eye on navigation to avoid ending up in a deep ravine but place is small enough that you can always figure out a way to walk around....More

It is not quite a trail. It was a platform when I was there and there was people walk over to way out. I should say no, it wasn’t a marked trail.

It's absolutely one of the most spectacular views you'll ever find. My wife and I frequently go out there late at night to look at the stars. The air is so clear you think you're on top of the world. It's definitely worth... More
