Drumhellere itself is not the problem, but most of the main sights are out of town. So you do need some transportation. Best thing is to check the internet again for guided tours or otherwise to contact the visitor centre and ask them.

you definitly need a vehicle or a tour to see some fun sights outside of town...hoodoos, swinging bridge, etc. the museum is in town so that won't be a problem.

Travel Tips for Drumheller

Alberta Badlands

by sunnywong

Formed by the meltwaters of the last ice age, the valley of the Red Deer River cuts a deep gash through the dulcet prairie about 140km east of Calgary, creating a surreal landscape of bare, sun-baked hills and eerie lunar flats dotted with sagebrush and scrubby, tufted grass. On their own, the Alberta Badlands - so anomalous in the midst of lush grasslands - would be worth a visit, but what makes them an essential detour is the presence of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology, amongst the greatest museums of natural history in North America. The museum is located 8km outside the old coal-mining town of Drumheller, a dreary but obvious base if you're unable to fit the museum into a day trip from Calgary. Drumheller is also the main focus of the Dinosaur Trail, a road loop that explores the Red Deer Valley and surrounding badlands; you'll need your own transportation for this circuit, and for the trip to the Dinosaur Provincial Park, home to the Tyrrell Museum Field Station and the source of many of its fossils.

LOOKING FOR DINOSAUR BONES

by RACCOON1

In the Drumheller badlands and along the " Dinosaur Trail" NW of Drumheller it is possable to find dinosaur bones that have just been exposed by rains or the winter runoff.

You will have to do a lot of walking through sometimes precarious terrain and you will have to pay attention .

It takes a lot of luck . Do not try to remove anything you find .

Three hoodoos, all different.

by dabidc

One would think that when 3 hoodoos are close to each other the appearance of the 3 would be about the same.

These ones show the error in that thinking.

The one at the back has a capstone, the other two have lost theirs. The one on the right appears to be more regular in shape, the other one to the left and in front has two layers of harder rock lower down which could end up looking like the one at the back. Except not as tall. The height of the two taller ones is about 3 m.

Look up, way up to the mouth of T-Rex

by dabidc

Just about everywhere you drive or walk in DRumheller there are replicas of Dinosaurs, at intersections on the lawns in fron to shops and reatuarnts. just little reminders that this is Dinosaur Country.

the biggest Dinosaur is at the Visitor Centre and you can climb inside and up to the mouth for view in the area.

Family pass is $10.00 Cdn. Sure to interest the younsters and give the Oldies a few extra pains in legs and backs.

Rowley a ghost town

by vtveen

Rowley is one of Alberta’s ghost towns, although not completely deserted. There are still 10 or 15 people living. Some of the old buildings are restored and the village has even a coupel of museums. The Railway Museum is situated in an old railway carriage, close to the weathered grain elevators.

During our visit on a grey and rainy Sunday old shops, buildings and the 'famous' Sam's in the ‘main street’ Saloon were closed for visitors. But normally this saloon is the heart of the copmmunity.

We reached Rowley through typical rural Alberta landscape with grain and cole seed along the dirt roads. The ghost town is located north of Drumheller: first take Highway 9, follow Highway 56 and after 10 km turn left on a gravel road (3 km) to Rowley.
