You have to be at least half mountain goat for this hike. Defiantly not for beginners or those with poor balance.
Little to no tree coverage, check the weather.
Many ways up and down... stay left on your way down.
Bring poles for the way down.

Did this hike with my girlfriend on July 8 on a sunny day. Difficult hike for beginners and intermediate level but worth it. At about half of the total length of the hike, we stopped. The view was fantastic.

Worth the view but tough to find the best approach to the summit that was safest...easy to get turned around.

My first real experience with skree, so a bit stressful. Really rewarding trail but hard work.

Starting point is at the double power poles which are close to the road - there's an obvious trailhead to the left of them. Park along the water in front of the poles (before going down the hill to Goat Creek Parking lot). A few minutes in there's a sign for avalanche bombs. Turn and take the switchback here for the main path. There's lots of "choose your own adventure" paths to hike but they all go in the same direction. There are blue squares and inuksuks indicating the main pathway for a while. When you get to the meadow below the highest peak you can do a loop going either left or right. I went to the right through the crevice and climbed up to the peak. From here I went along the ridge to the other peak where there is a metal box with a book you can sign. It's a hard but rewarding hike. Lots of variety in terrain. Instead of going to the summit (hardest part of the hike) you can also just go to the ridge closest to Ha Ling Peak for a great view once you are at the meadow. Jump in the water at the bottom when you are done! Did it in 4 hours with time spent at the top.

First time climbing a mountain! The first half was quite easy. The second half when you approach the summit was quite the scramble. Some parts were really hard, I had to stop to take breaks every few minutes because it's a lot of climbing (Especially if you're out of shape like me lol). But getting to the top was an amazing feeling. There was a little book to sign our names at the top. The view is well worth the hike. Would do it again.

Extremely challenging, steep hike that puts you to the test.
First half of the hike is strenuous, but safe as you climb up through a wooded forest with awesome views.
The second half of the hike is just continuous rock scrambling and climbing up very, very loose rock to the peak. There are several extremely dangerous parts of the trail in the second half that you could easily slip and fall due to piles of unstable loose rock.
Coming down is a controlled slide/ balancing act in many places.
The view from the summit as well as the feeling of accomplishment are so worth it.
Take your time, take frequent rests and be careful.

There were six of us in our group (including two 50+ in-laws) visiting the Canmore area for vacation.

We did our own research, flipped a coin, and went with EEOR over Ha Ling. We were told that Ha Ling would have been easier but we liked the idea of looking back at Ha Ling more so than the Rundle.

The scree on Rundle is relentless. Be prepared to scramble a lot going up and sliding coming down.

Another drawback was the trailhead and trail in general. It took multiple guessing games to decide where to exactly begin. No marked trailhead that we could see. We also exited on a different trail than when we started yet thinking we were hiking the same trail down on way back until last 20-30 minutes.

The views make it all worthwhile. Nice open meadows to relax on and picnic. I suppose with better shoes and trekking poles our trek would have been more enjoyable.
