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!

Second year in a row we hiked Ha Ling on New Year's Eve day. This is a fantastic hike in the winter as a lot of people still continue to hike it after it snows, thereby making it pretty probable you will be able to find the trail. You can also have the mountain almost to yourself quite often in... More

The trail is steep all the way and very steep near the top. But the view is wonderful once you get there. You can enjoy a great view before getting to the peak if the legs have become a bit wobbly. It is awesome to look almost straight down and to see the roof of my house far away down... More

Four hours round trip on the steep dip slope of the mountain to summit both Ha Ling and Miner's Peak. Be sure to go to Miner's Peak to get as good a view and be away from the crowds. We were up on a Sunday, which explains the crowds. Hiking poles were a nice extra to have for the trip... More

We did this hike a few years ago, and still talk about it and admire the photo of us at the top with Canmore far below. The trail was easy to follow and shady, except for the last scramble. It was a very good workout, with the reward of a spectacular view. Bring a snack so you can relax and... More

This is a very strenuous hike and should only considered if you have good shoes, no heart conditions or too young. A majority of people on the trail were adults. Only one lady brought her 6 yr and 10 yr old. Big mistake. The trail starts steep thru a forest. As you go up you can observe the mountain and... More

Moderate hike was very hard for our novice hikers but our thirteen year old made it to summit with a great view overlooking canmore. If you are scared of heights, maybe not the hike for you. Took us 4 hours up and down.

Park at Goat Lake trailhead, cross the road and climb towards the small building you can see on top of the embankment, cross the bridge over the canal. Following the canal, you will almost immediately spot a small sign in the treeline to your left, this is the start of the route to the summit. The path is always obvious,... More
