Anniversary Hike/ Ha Ling T4 / Beginners Welcome

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Ha Ling is a 6 KM hike ( roundtrip ) with an elevation gain of 750 meters.
    I would say it is anywhere from a 3 1/2 to 4 hour hike at a relaxed pace. It is a very popular summit in the Canmore area.

    I am not going to lie to you it is very steep but it is trail all the way. It is an easier first summit for strong beginners and the views are great.

    This was our first posted trip as Slow and Steady.

    Waivers: As per the new policy for waivers; I will bring the group waiver form with me to both the Calgary Meetup location and the trailhead. You must sign it before you will be allowed to go on this hike. You will also be asked to provide the name and phone number of an emergency contact. You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being. You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.



    The trail head is across the road from the Goat Creek parking lot.

    Directions to Goat Creek Parking Lot from Canmore:

    1. Head northwest on Bow Valley Trail/​AB-1A W toward Old Canmore Rd    170 m 

    2. Turn left onto Railway Ave    500 m 

    3. Turn left onto 8 St/​Hwy 742    650 m 

    4. Turn left onto 8 Ave/​Hwy 742Continue to follow Hwy 742    750 m 

    5. Sharp left onto Rundle Dr/​Hwy 742    240 m 

    6. Turn left onto Three Sisters Dr/​Hwy 742    650 m 

    7. Turn right onto Spray Lakes Rd/​Hwy 742

    Continue to follow Hwy 742.  Destination will be on the right.

    If anyone needs to contact me directly, please text or call me at (403) 481-3716.

    Sorry for the last minute cancellation. Driving from Drumheller seems too far for wet hiking. I'll join when the weather is a bit better. Hope you all have fun.

    I need to withdraw, I'm exhausted from a hectic week and need to catch up on sleep. I hope the weather is good and you all have a good hike.

    Hi everyone,
    As of today, we have sufficient drivers for everyone attending and therefore all the people who answered they needed a ride, do not worry, you will be taken care of :). If you do not think you can attend, please change your RSVP to NO, so the people from the waiting list do not miss out.

    See you all on Saturday!
