Pincher Creek, AB – You know how folks in Pincher Creek know it’s going to be a great day for a hike? The sun is shining, and the rows of wind turbines are making lazy loops on the horizon. In the summer, those days are abundant.
Using Pincher Creek as a basecamp for hiking in southwestern Alberta is ideal. First, there are plenty of reasonably priced accommodations, restaurants, coffee shops and pubs to get you on your way. So, lets begin. South or west? South today, tomorrow west.
