Directions to the trail: As we had a hard time finding the trail, I thought I should spell it out. Park at the Goat Creek parking lot. Then, walk across the road, up the hill, and over a bridge of water. There are no signs for the trail until you are at the forest, where there is a tiny plaque... More

The climb and the view will leave you breathless. Hardest part is the descent at the top. Once you get past the scree it is smooth sailing. Our family of four ( kids 10 and 12) completed the entire round trip, rests included in 3 1/2 hours. We are looking forward to doing it again next year!

Great hike. About a 1000 metre elevation but an amazing view at the top. There are a few steep sections but fairly easy hike otherwise. Lots of families. Some loose rock near the top but there are paths to guide you through.

My boyfriend and I hiked Ha Ling Peak a few weeks ago and I found it a little more strenuous than expected. It really is uphill almost the entire way up. I'm in decent shape (but have mild asthma) and had to take very frequent stops to catch my breath. Almost everyone else who was hiking that day were taking... More

Great hike! I found it pretty steep the last 1/3 up but I just took frequent small breaks and was fine. I used hiking poles and found that helped me a lot. The view from the very top is amazing! It looks pretty scary to go all the way up but I just took it slow and actually found going... More

I did Yamnuska and this one was supposed to be less time and potentially easier. I had a blast climbing Ha Ling although I found it more challenging than expected. most likely because it is all up. I had the best experience I did Ha ling in October I believe so there was snow and ice and I only had... More

I know this peak from its earlier name and wanted to hike up it since it has a historical connection to the early days of Canmore. The hike was very nice with a fairly easy grade for most of the way (however, if you are not in good shape, then you might struggle a bit). We had very good views... More

This hike is not to be underestimated. I did it in the winter and a storm quickly blew in making for some additional challenges! Well worth the climb, glad I had my Yaktrax! Many loose rocks and unstable terrain once above the tree line. Awesome view of Canmore from the peak! Will definitely do this again!

Nice easy hike for those who just want to walk away from civilization. The peak overlooks Canmore. Definitely breathtaking - enjoyable for all ages. My 8 year old little brother climbed the mountain. What's stopping you?

This hike is accessed from the back side of the mountain. It is best done in stages with short food breaks and rests. It is pretty much constant vertical but the end result is breathtaking. We took our eastern Canada relatives on this hike and they now want to move to Canmore!
