Too bad the 5th bridge was closed. It is still a very nice hike - easy, but icy and slippery in the winter. It is like walking through the winter wonder lake. Love it. Very different than in the spring, summer or fall. It season or each time I go it always gives you a different scence and feel and... More

Don't judge a book by its cover. In the middle of nowhere is a mystic place tucked away under a cloak of unsensational advertisement. Bring your hiking boots for this trek though. You may even want a backpack with water, Tylenol, or some muscle rub. Somehow in natures wisdom she did not account for tourists and the countless stairs you'll... More

There's so much to love. Whether you're walking the paths between the bridges and listening to the water roar past, or trekking the icy stairs in the winter, or even doing an ice hike to see the frozen canyon...beautiful.

This is a must see. Very safe walk. Beautiful views of this canyon. Followed the trail all the way down, but on the way back somehow we ended up on the other side. It turned out to back a shortcut, but watch when coming back I would have preferred to retrace my steps to get back, more to see.

The trail follows along the edge of the canyon which starts out very narrow so you're peering down a deep crevice, then it gradually widens with beautiful clear water (rapids and swirling currents) carving the landscape. The trail crosses back and forth across the canyon - we walked down past the 4th bridge before turning around and walking back. You... More

Be ready to walk down... then back up. But it's worth it. We went after a snow fall so it was a great site. The kids enjoyed it too.

Really enjoyed visiting the canyon. We joined a tour group on this day (as part of a trip to Maligne Lake) and we loved learning about the interesting and unique geological features of the place.

Nothing truly spectacular here (by that I mean no massive 100 foot falls), but a nice walk with good vantage points scattered along to see the impact on the rocks of a gazzilion years of water flow. The gorge is deep in places, with a myriad of small waterfalls, pools and potholes. There is a food outlet, gift shop and... More

Great location for a family friendly 1-2 hour hike. You could make it as short or long as you would like depending on how much time you spend exploring the lower canyon. In the lower canyon you can get right down to water level safely for those who want get their feet wet!
