Healthy, active 55+ family members completed Ha Ling in 2.5 hours up, 2 hours down without hiking poles. The hiking poles make the scree easier. Go to the thrift shop for $4 ski poles if you are not a lover of climbing down loose rock....More

This hike was on the list of things to do for our honeymoon in the rockies and it didn't disappoint. To set the scene, me and the wife are not experienced hikers or climbers but we have a very high level of fitness from Endurance...More

Total hike took us 4 hours and it got very steep towards the top. You have an amazing view at the top and it is totally worth it! Be prepared for windy conditions up there and a very slow steep way down

Mostly fit 50 y/o. Hike took 4 hours round trip. To be clear you hike straight up to the summit. Hardly a step on level ground. Stunning views from the top.

We really enjoyed this hike. It's a steady uphill climb and a very good leg workout. Most of the hike is spent going through tree cover but there are several open viewpoints along the way. When you get close to the top, everything opens up.There...More

First, the directions. Drive past Grassi Lake (closed x 2 months anyway because of bears), and you will find Goat Creek. There are a lot of people who have stopped on the side of the road, but keep going. Parking is at the end. It...More
