If you are in the Jasper area, this is an important place to see. It is a very narrow, deep canyon with a tremendous amount of water rushing over beautiful waterfalls. It is a relatively easy hike at the edge of the canyon, with several bridges that give you great photo opportunities of the waterfalls. We hiked from Bridge 1... More

This canyon is huge and well worth the visit. Not for the faint hearted. It's deep and scared but it is magnificent. The walk is down hill into the canyon so wear good shoes

If there is a better gorge/river walk anywhere (in the world!) we have yet to find it. The views are absolutely stunning and keep changing as the walk progresses down the gorge. Worth walking all the way down to the 5th bridge - or as close to the bridge as one can get given that the route is now barred... More

We took this half day tour in the morning. We saw several black bears, an eaglet and its mother in their nest. We also saw an Osprey's nest but no occupants and a Mule deer sitting beside the road. The lake cruise portion was very relaxing with some of the best scenic views my wife and I had seen. The... More

We stopped here as the first part of a Brewster tour one morning. Great walking trails around and through the canyon. It was amazing to see the fossils embedded on the walking trail. Great view of the mountains around Jasper. Guest shop had a good selection of post cards.

Stunning waterfalls and canyon - we could not stop taking photographs! There are a number of circular walks around the canyon ranging from a short, easy 20 minute walk to a harder 2 hour hike (be aware that the 2 hour hike is quite steep at the end). Well worth a visit.

Love this hike. The views are amazing and the gift shop and restaurant are great. The walk down is great, just be aware it is a climb back to the parking lot. If you don't want to hike all the way, it still is worth the walk to the second bridge.

This canyon has to be one of the most beautiful places in the park. If you rush through just to get the hike done you'll miss half the intriguing features of the canyon. The fifth bridge has been washed out by high water this spring. Some of the maps show starting at the fifth bridge but that is no longer... More
