If in the Canmore area this is a must do for the adventurous type!! Be alert as weather patterns can change very quickly. I did this hike a couple of years ago with members of my family. Some of it was sketchy at best! Worth the hike to the top though.

A challenging day hike with great rewards but not a walk in the park. Go prepared for weather change and high winds near the top.

Perfect day trip. 90 mins up, a bit less than that to get down. But the best view of the Rockies you're likely to come across outside of a helicopter...and you will have earns it too. Do yourself a favour and go and see Darren at gear up to get crampons, would be super hard without them.

My newlywed wife and I decided to hike to the top in late January as part of our honeymoon. It was unseasonably warm, so we figured it would be doable. As we came to the trailhead, we saw three other hikers come down with spikes on their shoes. They warned us the trail was a sheet of ice and was... More

Every time we have friends or family visiting us in Canmore, we bring them to China Man's peak (Ha-Ling now since ppl thought the name was offensive). Plan a lunch and warm layers for the top, sit at the top, where the big wall is and have a lunch there and look around, 360.

This hike has everything! We started at the bottom in fine weather (October 24th) and passed many people who were on the way down who warned us it was very windy at the top! As we went higher and reached the snow line, the going looked interesting to say the least, especially for the way back down as people were... More

The views of the Bow Valley from the top are magnificent and worth the effort. The trail does get progressively steeper and more difficult. If the summit scramble becomes too technical, the views are still amazing from the saddle below the summit. For a first hike to the top of a mountain, this is definitely my first choice!

The way up is a bit painful as it is up all the way but you're rewarded with great views since you break the tree lines. At the top there is a nice scramble with a great view over the cliff.

Not too strenuous hike that offers a nice bird's eye view of Canmore. Took us about 3 hours return. Did this hike in late June and most (if not all) of the paths were clear of snow.

It was much steeper than anticipated, however, after taking our time getting to the top in roughly 2 hours, it was a quick decent down. We did the entire hike in roughly 3 hours 30 minutes, though, it was a workout. At the top you can see the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, Canmore and on a clear day Calgary.... More
