The Village of Wayne and 11 BridgesWayne View Map
Location: Region 4, To get to village, visitors must get off the main highway six miles east of Drumheller and then drive four miles in a winding moon-like valley, crossing 11 one lane bridges, each with a wooden plank bed.
Deep in the heart of Alberta’s Badlands, is the tiny village of Wayne, once a thriving coal-mining town of more than 3,000, but now, the ghosts are knocking in Wayne, which has witnessed its population dwindle to only a handful of diehard souls. Along the way, visitors will see countless coal mining relics of the past, including abandon homes and machinery. The main attraction in town is the Rose Deer Hotel. The hotel, built in 1913, is the only structure remaining of the mining days. Inside the Saloon you will find the walls covered with old black and white photographs of Wayne and the coal mines plus a collection of mining gear.
