Brule Sand Dunes
Multiple trails offer hikers, equestrians and off-road vehicle enthusiasts a great view of the Rockies amidst miles of sand dunes.
Emerson Lakes and Hoodoos
This beautiful lake was created by a glacier many centuries ago. The lake is blue-green in colour and is nestled in a valley behind the community of Hinton. While at the lakes, be sure to stop by the Hoodoos, only eight kilometers away.
Miette Hot Springs
You won’t soon forget the drive up the wild Fiddle valley to the hottest mineral springs in the Rockies. Flowing from the mountain at 54°C, the water is cooled to a comfortable temperature of 40°C as it enters the pools.
Ogre Canyon is a very beautiful sight to see. The canyon is a deeply carved cleft in the mountainside. At the base of the cliffs are many sinkholes created by underground streams.
The name Pocahontas belongs to more than one local attraction. One is the "Indian Head" mountain shape of Roche Miette, appearing as if in full head-dress. Two is the deserted mining town; and three is Pocohontas, a haven for travellers and campers to stay and enjoy all of these scenic views.
The Raceway offers a variety of attractions. Come and see the Hobby-Stock and Street-Stock Races, Demolition Derby and more. Races start in May.
