A good walk down and an especially aerobic walk back up to the top carpark from the bottom, for a couple in their 60's. Great to see the power of the water racing down through the deep canyon and see how its carved its way down through. We visited in mid May and there was still some ice in the... More

Walk along a pretty creek in a pretty canyon carved out by the creek and see some wild life. I like the way Canada Parks control the environment around their parks, with fencing to keep little ones from getting into trouble.

Truly astounding to see the power of rushing water through the etched out dramatic gorge. Easy to get to--go early or late because it gets crowded.

Really scenic, only walked to just past the 3rd Bridge as it started to rain – you need to be fairly fit for the hike back! We visited the canyon after spending the morning at Maligne Lake, we arrived just after lunchtime and didn’t have any problems parking.

A wonderful location. We stopped in the car park intending just to have a look at the river, but the trails looked so interesting that we set off up a route following the roaring river which tumbled through deep gorges and down waterfalls. The scenery was amazing and the paths were laidout to take full aadvantage of the views. Through... More

We loved our walk through this amazing canyon. The power and thunderous noise of the water as is rushers through the narrow canyon is truly awesome. The best part of the canyon is also the most accessible and the easiest although we enjoyed walking in further.

We were scouting wildlife in the area and came upon the canyon not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised by the power of the water through such a tiny space. Nice walks along the edges despite the high number of people. We are told that it is great to visit in Winter to take an ice walk.

This was a beautiful place which we found just off the road to Maligne Lake. There were several walks through the woods and along the side of the river with its impressive gorges and pounding river. Through the woods there are wild flowers, birds and butterflies and informative boards giving information and directions. The temptation is to stand and take... More

We started at the car park at the "top" which is where the tea room is. Don't start at bridge 5 or 6. Parking at both from the main access road, then walk up the river on "far side" towards bridge 4. The river is powerful and canyon starts getting steeper and steeper, but the important thing is that you're... More
