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

If you have limited time and don't a short tough hike Ha ling peak is the best short summit hike in the area. Dress warm and be ready for any weather up top . Its windy up top.

Incredible climb up thru icy snow covered switch backs to tree line then over scree to summit. Vista at top was incredible and worth the effort. Met friendly folks from Czech Germany and Canadians. Very cold at the top but refreshing after a strenuous climb...My quads and glutes got an amazing workout and we will cherish the photos from up... More

The trail head is across the road from the trail head of Goat Creek. On a cloudy or rainy day, bring your rain coat, hat, gloves. Switch back trail, pretty straight up, but do-able. We did this in September on a cool rainy day, ran into hail/rain at peak. Beautiful views, great climb, overlooks town.

Excellent hike with really great views. We hiked in mid april and there was still lots of snow and ice which made for some very slippery sections. Nonetheless, a nice hike that doesn't take more than a few hours.

Friends brought us here for our first hike. We went in late June when the snow was cleared off Ha Ling but surrounding peaks were still snowy. In my opinion this is a must-do hike in Canmore. Compared to other peaks that I have ascended this is an relatively easy climb. You will not get better views than this for... More

A friend and I did this hike/scramble in 2.5 hours. The 1.5 hours up the continuously steep trail was quite difficult - we had to slow the early pace we set after feeling light headed 5 minutes in. We stopped often for a minute or two for a standing rest, just to slow our heart rates and found this to... More

This is a great hike. Steep and usually have a fair number of people on the trail. Fantastic view at the top. Can take you dog with you.

The hike is relentlessly uphill so you get a lot of vertical climb for each step. Most of it is well-groomed to the tree line. I stopped many times to catch my breath (and enjoy the views and measure my progress where I could see down into the valley). Many athletes use the trail to train, and they run it.... More
