Ha Ling Sunrise Hike
Canada › Goat Creek Parking Lot
Added by Matt Ford
This hike offers a unique, but reasonably easy to access view point of Canmore, which makes this a must do! Enjoy the beautiful views down of the Bow Valley as the sun rises.
Start at the Goat Creek parking lot and cross the road towards Ha Ling. There is an access road with a gate on the other side. Walk up the road and across the bridge. From there the trail is obvious and will lead you to the summit. Overall it's a fairly easy hike with switchbacks
Once above tree line the trail changes to scree and there are a few options to get the rest of the way up. While not overly steep, good route finding skills will make this safer and easier.
There are a few rock walls built that will keep you out of the wind and enjoying the view, but consider bringing some hot chocolate or tea to stay warm!
Make sure to dress appropriately for the season. It's almost always windy near the summit and the trail can be extremely slippery in the spring or after a freeze/thaw cycle.
