Drumheller Southern Alberta

In the heart of Alberta’s Canadian Badlands an hour and a half east of Calgary, lies the town of Drumheller. Make a stop at the visitor information center. You can’t miss it – it’s at the base of the World’s Largest Dinosaur. Climb inside the enormous T.rex all the way up to its open jaws for a panoramic view of the surrounding badlands. Then discover more of the beasts lurking around the town. Spend time at the Royal Tyrrell Museum, one of the finest dinosaur museums in the world.

Hoodoos and Hoodoo Trail

Drumheller, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Hoodoos take millions of years to form and stand 5 to 7 metres tall. Each hoodoo is a sandstone pillar resting on a thick base of shale that is capped by a large stone. Hoodoos are very fragile and can erode completely if their capstone is dislodged. The protected Hoodoos site is a guaranteed spot to see Hoodoos but smaller versions of these sandstone giants can be found all over the Badlands. The Hoodoos make a great stop on the way to the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site in East Coulee. There's no cost to stop and visit.
