Ghost Town Hike and Beer

3 h
About this activity

Explore the history of the Kovach Mine as we make our way along the Coal Mine trail.

Join one of our certified guides in the Kananaskis Village, then depart for Kananaskis' own Ghost town. Kovach was a tiny town where the workers and their families from the coal mine once lived. Your tour begins with a short shuttle to the trailhead; where traces of the mining camp 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. Take your beer glass with you as a souvenir of this Kananaskis experience.

This 5 km hike, with 250 m elevation gain is suitable for children 8 years and older. Please schedule 3 hours for this excursion.

Bottled water and cookies will be provided on the tour. Regular adult tickets include a pint of beer and souvenir glass. Youth, child and non-beer adult tickets include a non-alcoholic drink.
