Coal Mine Hike and Beer

Join one of our certified guides in the Kananaskis Village, then depart for Kananaskis' reclaimed Coal Mine. Your guide will show you where Kovach, the tiny town where the workers and their families from the coal mine once lived. Your tour begins with a short drive to the trailhead; where traces of the mining town remain. The hike takes you along the trail where horses used to cart the coal, to a stunning viewpoint where the mine scar is visible. Retrace your steps through the forest as you imagine walking home from a long day at the mine to your home in Kovach.

After our beautiful hike, we will return to the village where a cold pint of Ghost Town Ale or a Shirley temple awaits you.
