Great views at the top.

Absolutely amazing 360degree views from the peak! Great hike!!

A very rewarding hike with a stunning view of Ha Ling and Canmore. difficult but worth it. Ice cleats recommend as the scramble is still quite slippery

favorite hike so far! Absoloutley beautiful

Always love this hike in the fall but this was the first winter attempt and it was stunning. Lots of elevation over a short distance but the trail is well kept and easy to follow due to its popularity.

We had a south western wind so it got a bit unpleasant out of the treeline but it’s not far from the treeline to the peak. The winds made it so cold up there my iphone wouldn’t work, sapped the battery in about 2 minutes of photos. I’d recommend tech gloves, face masks and a charger pack to anyone else looking for some great shots at the top.

We wore spikes (small ones) and used poles and that was plenty of grip and stability. Otherwise it was a fantastic sunny day and a beauty of a mountain.

My favourite hike of all time.

Beautiful little hike, especially with the frozen waterfalls. Wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on a beautiful winter ❄ day. Will check it out again in the summer ☀ to see the creek and waterfalls in their unfrozen state.

Trust the ratings when it says this trail is hard. There was a lot of scramble to get to the summit, and although we brought our dog, he could not make it to the summit, with fear he would cut the pads of his paws. I recommend bringing back up socks for the decent once you pass the snow.

This trail has no markers or set paths, so be very cautious you don't get turned around on the way down.

Goat Pond is a short drive past the start point for some easy sight seeing.

Such a rewarding hike.

all kinds of snow for skiing big cornices right now I would be careful

Sunny but a bit cold at the top with the wind.
Challenging hike because of the snow, the last 200 meters are tricky.
Clits not essential but recommended.
Awesome views as soon as you leave the forest.

Definitely make sure to bring headlamps for each member of your group.

the trail pretty good and nice hike

A nice hike. Quite busy, even in the winter. Lots of hills, and a good variety of terrain.

very challenging but once you get up there it is all worth the climb!

Have done past two weekends (wet) and over 20 times. Always a great trail, moderately strenuous, but never too difficult. Absolutely love this place!

Great climb even with snow

Awesome views

Did this hike late in January! Managed to complete the entire loop and it wasn't too bad. The ascent up to Mt Loder isn't that bad but there is some steep parts. There wasn't much snow on that side of the mountain which made scrambling fairly easy. However once I started down the other side towards the valley you could tell that's where the snow collected. Was mostly me sliding/falling/cursing my way down.

Once I was into the valley it looked like I was the first person to attempt it in the winter months as there was no tracks. This was probably the worst part as you had to walk on the snow covered river and had no way to tell if the snow was 6 inches deep or 6 feet. Many times I fell through and sunk in up to my waist.

Once I got to a beaten trail by the canyon walk it's fairly easy from there, I jogged the rest of the way back.

Completed this hike in 4:45 with a lunch break, however I did shave some time off sliding down half the mountain.

I also lost my poles somewhere on the descent into the valley, if you find them please reach out and return!

Thank you!

Good, steep hike. 3 hours to summit and around 2.5 to decent. the views were decent.

Awsome Hike! - Complete January 21, 2018
Very cold at the top but worth it for the veiws! Easily do-able with crampons! To windy to walk along the ridge but will be back in the summer!

Great for its proximity to home. So easy to get out there for a few loops and some fresh air anytime of year!

Awesome hike with great reward at the end. I believe this is also called inges mine??? Very hot to do in summer. No shade on trail.

Great for snowshoeing, beautiful

Very cold the day I did it. In the trees it was so nice, I was peeling off layers. Beyond the treeline it was savagely windy and cold at -30. It was also snowing, so I'll have to go back on a clear day for the views. I had crampons, but never used them. Closer to the treeline, there were a few steep slippery spots. Well packed all the way.

I just did this hike on January 3rd. The trail was quite packed down. The way down was slippery.was pretty cold at the top. Make sure to dress properly for the weather. Great hike!

This is a great warm up hike to shake things out for the season. I’ve done it a few times and have enjoyed it every time.

I've done it 4 or 5 times, one of which was on December 26/10! It's a switchback hike so not especially stimulating but it really feels great to summit this guy and overlook Canmore below. It's straight up with the top but all scree that is in slippery side but close to Calgary and safe to do on your own as there is almost always someone else on it.

Just did Ha Ling New Year's Day and trail was nicely packed making it impossible to lose the trail. No ice and not too slippery so spikes aren't completed necessary, but helped a great deal to keep up speed. Some fun sliding spots for the way down.

I just did this hike Christmas morning. The trails are nice and packed down and not too slippery at all if you have some good hiking shoes. There were only a couple slippery spots when you get out of the tree line where the snow is lightly covering the rocks but it’s honestly fine. Did it without crampons or poles and I was great. There were two spots where people slid down on their bums on the decent which made for ALOT of fun and laughs. You don’t go too fast and you slow down naturally. Great little hike :)
