Hike: Ha Ling Peak

Ha Ling Peak overlooks Canmore. The hike takes about 2 to 3 hours with roughly 2300 ft elevation gain, about 6km. Hiking poles recommended for the descent. This hike is a favorite among the locals, many trail runners train here. Try to start early. Take a raincoat. As with any mountain, the weather can change quickly. All in all this is a fun hike, and a great one to do if you don’t have a ton of time. At the same time, it’s a moderate hike, I wouldn’t say it’s really easy. Take breaks or nibble appropriately if you need to. You’ll need approach or hiking shoes for this one.
