THE CROSSING AT GHOST RIVER – DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE
Located on 145 rolling acres, set along the banks of the picturesque Ghost River, The Crossing offers an exceptional stay in the beautiful Ghost River Valley. Experience relaxed, professional, and unassuming hospitality in a natural and peaceful location and let us take care of you. The history of The Crossing at Ghost River first began with the region’s Aboriginal people who used a low point in the river as a “crossing”. In later years, this crossing connected and aided early explorers, traders, and settlers in many of the same ways. The land, as a whole, has always provided opportunities to connect its visitors with its countless treasures and natural beauty and continues to be recognized for its intangible qualities, rich history and natural beauty.
YOUR HIKING EXPERIENCE
The Ghost Watershed is located approximately 60 km west of Calgary, Alberta. It contains some of the most scenic landscapes in Alberta right adjacent to Banff National Park.
