A hike I just had to do

I'll start off by saying - if you're afraid of heights, this probably isn't the hike for you. I tried this a couple of years ago, and had an anxiety attack when I got above the tree-line. Eventually making it up to the "saddle", but going no further. This year, though, I was bound and determined to make it right... More

Went straight up the NE corner. 11 pitches, every belay station is bolted. You will need a little bit of trad gear but many of the difficulties are bolted. 1h to approach from Grassi Lake, 3.5h to the top where you get to surprise the tourists! Beware of rockfall from rope drag and climbing parties above you, this is the... More

Amazing view when you make it to the top. We were huffing and puffing, the adrenaline gets going on some of the more steep/slippery/scrambling places to walk up, but well worth the view. Very busy this time of year but felt safe about that as I heard there had been bears around this area recently. Great Saturday workout if you... More

Be ready! To get to the trail mouth, you have to drive up a winding road (park at Goat Creek), and from there the entire hike is pretty much uphill. There were families with small children hiking it, but it was a bit of a struggle for me in a few places so I don't know if I'd recommend it... More

When you have reached the top, the views over Canmore are pretty awesome. Be prepared for a steep, hard walk.

A fantastic hike! While not easy (it is almost entirely all sloped, quite majorly at times), this hike offers countless breathtaking views. My brother and I went all the way to the top of the mountain, although not everyone does because of the loose gravel. My advice is to keep going because the rocks become much easier to navigate once... More

This is not a hike for beginners. Many steep sections getting to the top. Once you get there, you have a great sense of accomplishment and a wonderful view.

This spot has so much going for it! Ha Ling is an impressive rock face overlooking turquoise waters and the town of Canmore down in the valley. Great vista views on a clear day. Although the one side of the peak is for serious climbers, you can hike to the summit on the other side. I make sure to go... More

It is a bit of a stiff climb toward the top of the peak, but the views of Canmore and the valley beneath are worth every step!

For those fortunate enough who are in the area and moderately fit, Ha Ling Peak is a great time. If you love the outdoors, the mountain and all its glory, this is it. Caveat, I'm not really fit and not an avid outdoor guy. So this mountain trek did a few number on me, mostly my body the next day.... More
