Ha Ling Peak, Canmore

(4.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Climb over 700 m (2,296 ft) to take in the incredible views of Bow River Valley from Ha Ling Peak. The peak takes its name from a cook working for the Canadian Pacific Railway who, in 1896, climbed to the summit in record time. With various trails on offer, you can choose whether to hike, climb, or scramble to the peak to enjoy the panoramic vistas. When you leave the tree-shaded area, the path to the top becomes loose rock, so wear appropriate footwear. Put Ha Ling Peak and other Canmore attractions into our Canmore family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Beautiful lookout from the top..so worth it I highly recommend doing this. Not an easy hike but well worth it  more »
  • A good little climb, well marked paths and well maintained. Great views from the top but you share with a lot of people. Best time to go is early in the morning before its gets crazy busy.  more »
