Escape into the rich history along the Miner's Path with Uplift Adventures, and retrace the stories of the miners and people living in the early 1900s. Coleman was a town built on coal mining and is now recognized as a National Historical Site. Their expert guides share with you the history and remnants along the path, and you will discover real stories of those who sacrificed lives, were determined to create a prosperous living or supported the underground miners. Not only do you get to learn about this hidden gem, but you can also add on a delicious brunch in one of Coleman's beautiful historical buildings or explore the Crowsnest Museum. Your tour starts at the Crowsnest Museum, historically the Coleman High School. Here, you will meet your expert guide. You will be assigned a task to complete before they head out on the trail, just like the miners did when they went to work. Your walking tour will include some information about downtown Coleman, several real stories from McGillivray Mines, and a viewing of remnants along the Miner’s Path and McGillivray Mines. Your walking tour leaves directly from the Crowsnest Museum, and you will make several stops along the way to uncover stories and remnants of the past. Near the halfway point, they will stop for a refreshing beverage and locally-made snack; all while listening to the stories of the past. Once your break is over, you will visit the main site of the McGillivray underground mine and search for clues to help retell the harrowing tales. You will finish their tour by being welcomed back to the Crowsnest Museum.
