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

Healthy, active 55+ family members completed Ha Ling in 2.5 hours up, 2 hours down without hiking poles. The hiking poles make the scree easier. Go to the thrift shop for $4 ski poles if you are not a lover of climbing down loose rock....More

Total hike took us 4 hours and it got very steep towards the top. You have an amazing view at the top and it is totally worth it! Be prepared for windy conditions up there and a very slow steep way down

Be prepared when doing this hike!! It is steep...the entire way! No breaks! It has some areas where you need to mind your footing. Lose your focus and you can end up slipping, falling or rolling an ankle on the endless roots and rocks that...More

I went last Oct when it was shoulder season. We started off at the base with an easy road up, as we got further up the hike, it got more and more slippery with snow/ice. Without proper gear on, it became really difficult for me...More
