Very tough but rewarding hike. Don't underestimate the time it will take to get up and back, especially in winter months when it gets dark early (we hiked up in November). Turn around if it's taking too long - the way down was much slower...More

The kind of hike I didn't want to do more than once but I love looking up at the peak knowing I have been there.

Easy Navigation on a very popular hike. Lots of switchbacks keep the elevation gain consistent without being overwhelming.

I have hiked up Ha Ling peak twice and both times were SPECTACULAR! You need proper winter gear with hikers and spikes and make sure you bring warm clothing for the top as it is very cold and windy. It is about 4km straight up...More

Some great classic routes for climbers to enjoy. Fabulous views of the Bow Valley from up top. No ropes or harnesses? No problem. A long hike up the other side also takes you to the top. Feeling ambitious? Combine with a visit to Grassi Lakes.

Great hike and very easily accessible. Stunning views from the top overlooking Canmore. I prefer to ascend earlier in the day as the afternoon sun can be intense

A great little hike for a great workout and views. Downside is it can get very busy. Go early or late to avoid the crowds. Do EEOR hike next door, to avoid the crowds, even better!

Stumbled upon this mountain that folks were coming off of. Decided to try it the next morning and in 3 hours conquered it! Half way up was going to quit as it is a challenge. Didn't quit and it was so worth the climb

Ha Ling Peak was the one hike that my partner could not wait to tackle. I on the other hand was unsure if I could even make it half way after how difficult I heard this hike is. It took us 4 and a half...More
