is nestled in the Brazeau Range of the Canadian Rockies, a backcountry haven. It is an old mining town with a notable chapter in history. The population dispersed after the closing of the Brazeau Collieries Mine Site
in 1955. What remains is a quaint little Hamlet far from the stress and worries of the city. The town of Nordegg includes a gas station with a general store. Also, you will find a museum (complete with a café serving fresh pies). Fancy a beer after a day of adventures? There is a beer cabin (liquor outlet) to fulfill your needs. How about a dinner out? A restaurant and a not to be missed food truck which serves ice cream, burgers, dogs and fries will fill your belly. There are picnic tables you can enjoy your meal at while overlooking the fairways of another small part of Alberta’s past, a rustic 9 hole golf course
with a canvas of rocky peaks and big skies laid out in the backdrop. Tours of the Collieries
, a recognized National and Provincial historical site, are offered daily.
