Note: This trail has a temporary closure to reduce environmental degradation during current wet/snowy conditions. Please see the park's website for up to date information. The Ha Ling Peak towers over the town of Canmore. It's a striking mountain, and a great hike. Drive west on 742 from Canmore, and the parking area will be on the right. The trail is often very busy, especially on warm weekend days. If you arrive early, there shouldn't be that many people on the trail. Keep in mind that during the winter, the road leading to the trailhead may be closed. The hike is fairly difficult as you zig-zag up to the peak. The trail is maintained until the saddle 0.4 km from the summit. From here, the trail is unmaintained, and can be quite rocky. In winter conditions, this trail is a difficult mountaineering trip and should be attempted only by experienced hikers. There is an avalanche hazard here.

I did this yesterday. The road 742 is closed before the Nordic center. So I parked at the park before the road closure, and walked to the trail (you can follow the powerlines or walk the road). Microspikes are a must. There's lots of packed snow until you get to the scramble. There was also a black bear kicking around so bring bear spray just in case. Barely anyone on the trail.

Road is closed at the dog park. Microspikes/poles would be desirable but gaiters not needed. Not busy. I hike very often and post pics on instagram @kylescoronalife if you're interested in scoping some pics (feel free to ask questions about locations, parking, etc)

Beautiful scenery and very windy at the top bring a jacket even in the summer.

One of my favourite anytime hikes. Easily done round-trip in 3 hours for fit adults, but it’s a beautiful trip so take your time!

We pushed it up the hill and it took us 2 hours, the top was very windy so we didn't really spend much time up there. But otherwise was a great trail!

Not too many people if you start early enough. Bit of a scramble to summit in the last km with the wind and snow drifts. Definitely need spikes if you want to get to the peak.

Super busy today! Everyone must have been going stir crazy during the week because of COVID-19. It seemed everyone was on the trail. Still very enjoyable though. You need microspikes, especially at the top. Amazing views.
