Jump to: navigation, search

Cambria is a tiny town in the Alberta Badlands region of Alberta, Canada. It's near the tourist hub of Drumheller. It's primarily notable for the Willow Creek Hoodoo Interpretive Trail (see below). There are almost no buildings or inhabitants here, but the town is marked with road signs. Early in the 20th century it was home to coal mines.

  • Willow Creek Hoodoo Interpretive Trail, (On Highway 10, look for sign marking turnoff, drive 1km NE to parking area). Hoodoos are a characteristic rock formation of the badlands. Looking like 2m tall mushrooms, they were formed when a cap of more resistant rock protected the softer rock underneath from erosion. Hoodoos can be found in other parts of the region, but this trail makes a few of them easy to visit. A picture there shows that, sadly, there are fewer hoodoos now than even a few decades ago, as erosion and tourist curiosity take their toll. The trail is under 1km and an easy scramble across rocks. Parking area includes covered picnic tables and chemical toilets. (51.38042,-112.53502) edit
