In the spirit of the first settlers, many choose to travel Alberta's Iron Horse Trail the old fashioned way...on horseback. What better way to become a part of nature then quietly trodding along the trail.
Perhaps sharing the experience in a covered wagon brings more of the "old ways" feeling to you, and enables you to travel in a group.
Many areas are horse friendly, staging areas and rest stops, check out the Trail Etiquette page to be sure that everyone is getting the best enjoyment.
