East End of Rundle
Distance: 6 km / 3.7 mi
A moderate hike leading you to the South Summit of Mt. Rundle. Several of the routes will require attention to footing as loose rocks and steep inclines may bring some unsteadiness.
Just below the summit is a nearly level area at 2300 m (7544 ft) known as “The Bench”. At this point, have a rest and a snack while taking in the incredible scenery; grab a photo to submit to The Georgetown’s Facebook page before heading back down.
Ha Ling Peak
Distance: 6 km / 3.7 mi
Ha Ling has become one of the more popular trail-heads in Canmore due to less laborious inclines and can take anywhere from ninety minutes to four hours.
The hike meanders through the forest and then leads to steeper territory. Once you reach the summit, you will gain a stunning bird’s eye view of Canmore.
Distance: 8 km / 5 mi
This hike is best attempted starting in April. The hike will take between four and seven hours to reach the Shoulder at 2300 m (7544 ft); here you will have the opportunity to view the foundations and helipad of what would have been a tourist tea-house which was abandoned due to the noise-pollution it would have created for the town of Canmore.
The Triple Crown challenge only requires that you reach the tea house, if you wish to reach the summit, the trail continues on loose shale for about thirty minutes.
