Ha Ling Peak, Canmore

#3 of 7 in Nature in Canmore
Mountain · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
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 trip planning site, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Great hike! We didn't make it to the very top because of wind but made it high enough to get a great view of Canmore. It is difficult all the way up and it requires some level of physical fitness. The view is totally worth it!
