Best hike for a vies of the valley

This is the easiest peak in the area, and though it may pose a challenge for the very young, any kids of around 10 and up should do fine.

Ha Ling Peak is a nice hike with a pleasant views on the way and a rewarding panorama on the top! Entering the trail from the Goat creek side walking through the beautiful forest and in the end throwing your view over the top of the mountain to a breathtaking panorama of Canmore, the opposite mountain ridge, the whole Bow...

Parking at Goat Creek, above the Nordic Centre, this hike takes about 3 hours round trip up a single-track path most of the way up to the top of the cliff where you can see the entire Bow Valley.

This is a moderate to intense hike (depending on your fitness level) that is not recommended for beginners or young kids. The view at the top is incredible with a 700m sheer drop that will freak you out if you are scared of heights. It was a great day hike and you have to drive up from Canmore, certainly one... More

A short drive up past the Nordic Centre and parking at Goat Creek brings yo to this trailhead. This hike is ~3 hours round trip, with some significant elevation gain, however, the payoff at the top is worth every last step.

Great hike. Recommend that Parks Canada have better signage at trail entrance. Otherwise a wonderful experience. Suggest one bring ice spikes for additional traction on snowy icy sections.

An amazing hike to do with almost any age as long as they have the right attitude. Its a non-technical climb/hike. Its all uphill climbing for a solid 1.5-2 hours up, however, the view at the summit is so worth it. I have climbed it twice, once with snow and wind and again with beautiful +4 degrees and no snow.... More

To be fair, I think this is a scramble. Not suitable for small children. It is to the peak of a mountain. Lovely view. Not a nice place in high winds or once it starts to snow.

This hike is a good one if you want to overcome your fear of heights. 3/4 of the way is fairly closed in and not exposed to any elements that would make you fearful of falling but the rest of the way up I thought was very challenging because of that. If you take your time and are not in... More
