Ha Ling Peak, located in Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park, can be accessed via the Spray Lakes Road (Hwy 742) above Canmore. Ha Ling Peak hiking trail is one of the most popular trails in Kananaskis Country and over the years, the hiking trail has degraded substantially due to erosion from very high use. To prevent further trail degradation, Alberta Parks will realign the trail this summer.
To support construction of the new hiking trail alignment, rock blasting and tree removal are required. To ensure the safety of hikers and climbers on Ha Ling Peak, Alberta Parks will implement occasional full mountain closures. Alberta Parks will not permit access to hiking and climbing routes on Ha Ling Peak during the closures.
Closures will begin in early April for tree removal and the bulk of trail construction will continue throughout July to October.
