Great hike--easy access, a well traveled trail. Just remember that it can be cool up top, even in summer so bring a jacket. Much more accessible than Lady Mac.

Ha Ling is an excellent hike to introduce you to the mountains. How many people have said they have climbed a mountain? Well here you can! This is a very popular hike and very accessible with just a short drive from Canmore. Good for all ages, the trail is well maintained. It is however, a continuous uphill grind. You gain... More

I've climbed this scramble many times and always enjoy it--the climb up can be a bit of a grind but is worth it for the view of Canmore and surrounding mountains when you get to the top. It's easy to get to and is close to Canmore. We've taken lunch and climbed down into the bowl out of the wind... More

The hike up Ha Ling Peak is a short hike but the views and the "alpine" feel of the summit contribute to a great feeling of accomplishment. I took my son, daughter-in-law and 11 year old grandson there early on a sunny weekday morning in August. We huffed and puffed up the well-graded trail, laid down to peer over the... More

If you're in the Canmore area and are in reasonable shape, this is the hike to do. No special equipment required, though a good pair of hikers are a must-have. Leave 3-4 hours to go up and down and avoid coming here after lunch. You'll be rewarded with a fantastic view of the Bow Valley around Canmore. Have some spare... More

This has become a very popular hike, especially on weekends hords of people are on this trail. The view on top is nice for the short hike you have to do. Just go weekdays early in the morning.

We've hiked Ha Ling Peak several times now and each time it doesn't disappoint. There is a bit of an uphill hike of >750 m so you need to be in pretty good shape to make it up to the top. Once you get beyond the treeline, it is shale so make sure you have good tread on your footware.... More

Remember that what goes up, must come down. If you are having difficulties going up, stop and take a look down the trail. Many times I have witnessed people struggling descending this trail. Avoid this trail on the weekends, as it is very very busy. Early morning and late evenings are the best time to go. If it's cool in... More

This peak has spectacular views. Absolutely amazing. It is a very difficult hike for the most fit person. It's 4k straight up and down. But getting to actually touch the summit is such a great feeling. And looking over the flat front face is breath taking. Highly recommend trying this hike. Make sure to take lots of breaks on the...

This was the second time I did this climb with my adult children, they are fit and fast, and we're patient with me. It's challenging, but, so amazing
