      • Effective Date: March 18, 2019 - June 28, 2019
      • Where: Barrier Dam Day Use
      • Why: Heavy equipment and crews will be working on site to facilitate expansion and redevelopment of Barrier Dam Day Use area.

  • Construction Closure - Ha Ling Trail

      October 9, 2018

      • Effective Date: Oct 9, 2018 until further notice
      • Where: Ha Ling Trail and Ha Ling climbing routes.  
      • Why: Please be advised that due to the early season of large, deep accumulations of snow, conditions are no longer safe for construction work to continue at Ha Ling. As a result of the construction work not being complete, several hazards exist throughout the trail.  Due to the lack of hazard visibility and way finding issues, Ha Ling Peak will remain closed over the winter of 2018/2019 to ensure the safety of Alberta Parks users.   Alberta Parks will not permit access to hiking and climbing routes on Ha Ling Peak during the area closure. Alberta Parks users are asked to respect the closure notices for their own safety.


      Visitors looking for alternatives to Ha Ling Peak can call the Kananaskis Information Line at 1-403-678-0760 or via a Kananaskis Information Centre such as Barrier Lake, Bow Valley or Peter Lougheed.
