This one of the most popular hike in the Canmore area. There are gorgeous views from the top. It is a bit strenuous, but very rewarding. When descent check the Miner Peak at your left for great views of Ha Ling Peak.

Did this hike in late September, on a beautiful day to ensure we could enjoy the view. Lots of parking available, you begin the hike through the forest and eventually the trees thin out, and you find yourself at the top of the mountain. Really good hike, lots of folks on the trail, yet not overcrowded. It is a tough... More

High up, with beautiful views. Bring comfortable shoes, water (there are no fountains)and snacks. Don't forget the camera. It took us about 2.5 hours up and 1.5 hours down, stopping occasionally. We are in reasonable shape, but no athletes. Make sure, you make enough time, so stop and take in the views.

Make sure you are in shape otherwise this hill climber and toe pounder will take you out. This goes straight up to a final cliffhanging lookout over the valley which is amazing. However there are no breaks, it is unrelenting upwards and gets scrambly towards the top which is awesome. We spent a half hour at the top and made... More

After a short drive to the trail head, the hike to the top takes about 2 - 3 hours depending on your physical condition. Hiking poles would be an asset but not necessary (we forgot ours). The view at the top is breath taking not to mention windy. Take a small back pack for your lunch or misc. items and... More

Some guides call it moderate, others call it difficult. Not difficult, but strenuous. Straight up the whole way and the rocky section at the top is tricky when coming down, but the view is stupendous and worth the blisters on my toes.

Great Hike for all skill levels. nice start to our hike - outback trip. easy to access from town site , parking can be a challenge , better off to park a little ways away and make your way there.

I've hiked all over. Up some of Americas highest mountains. This hike doesn't have any level sections. It's up from bottom to top. Very rewarding and beautiful views. Great folks along the way. Be polite and off to take pics for others. Enjoy.

I would say we were of average fitness and it took us 3 hours to get to top and back (including frequent stops to catch our breath and also to take photos). The view from the peak is amazing. However be prepared for never ending steepness and very little flat sections. To go from the tree line to the peak... More

We did this hike on our third day of hiking. We should have done it on the second day because I was tired before we started. It is a steep climb over switchbacks and sometimes I had to grab onto trees. I would say I am of average fitness, so if you were in great shape it would be easier.... More
