Ha Ling Peak, Canmore

4.9
#3 of 8 in Parks in Canmore
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.

Where to stay in Canmore

Resorts and mountain lodges represent the majority of places to stay in Canmore. Most lie just off the Trans-Canada Highway, allowing for convenient access to the surrounding area's natural attractions. Look deeper in town--towards the Bow River--to enjoy the most scenic sightseeing Canmore has to offer, straight from your hotel window. Remember to reserve in advance between June and September, as the town attracts most of its visitors during the warmer months.
