Take a relaxing wagon ride along the Bow River and join the horseback riders for a BBQ cookout.

Arrive at 3 Mile Cabin to enjoy genuine western hospitality and some tasty comfort food. But before digging in, work up an appetite with a few western-style games, like lassoing and horse-shoes.

Anyone joining the group can choose to take a horseback ride along the Bow River to 3 Mile Cabin and then re-join the group for an authentic cowboy bbq. This is the perfect adventure for all ages of the family group and is available as a lunch or dinner departure time and meal.
