CANMORE – The popular Ha Ling Trail in Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park will be closed to hikers for at least the long weekend to help prevent potential damage because of the weather conditions.
Alberta Parks issued an advisory this week due to the “wet trail conditions have made he trail extremely prone to damage.”
The closure began Wednesday and is expected to continue until conditions improve in the region.
The trail gives access to Ha Ling Peak, one of the well liked trails in the Bow Valley, which overlooks Canmore. It’s maintained for 3.5 kilometres to the saddle and the final 400 metres and 103m of elevations are unmaintained, according to Alberta Parks information.
