Well worth the short drive from Jasper. The falls are very dramatic and the water is crystal clear. There walking track is great from kids of all ages and takes approximately and hour to complete with lots of stopping to look at the falls and take photos. There are a lot of stairs and can get a bit slippery in... More

My husband and I stopped here on a bit of a whim on our recent trip to the Jasper area. What a great find and one of the highlights of our trip. Wear solid hiking shoes. Some steep inclines. We did the 1st to the 4th bridges as that was all that we had time for. Would go back for... More

Beautiful canyon hike! We hiked down onto the canyon with amazing views of the canyon with waterfalls and interesting rock structures. Then, we hiked back to the parking lot on the 7H trail. A different view and beautiful overlook!

The Malign Canyon a short distance from Jasper Canada is a very deep gorge with dashing water. A circular trip was reasonable for adults, seniors and children. An unusual natural feature.

We enjoyed Maligne quite a bit. Only complaint is that it gets crowded with busses. Once you take the longer hike around the canyon, the crowds thin out. If you want to avoid the crowds, you can start the trail bridge 6 or bridge 5. We had a good time and it was a great beginning hike for the morning.

Maligne Canyon is a must see !! Wear good shoes as the trails can be muddy or uneven. Bring a camera to capture the beauty of the water falls and canon its self. You can hike it or just walk a bit on some of the trails. It can be very busy in the summer, I would love to go... More

Another one of the many plces in this region where tou don't need a degree in geology to marvel at what moving water and ice can accomplish. A great spot for photos, read the sign boards to really get the most out of your visit and understand how the canyon was formed and continues to evolve. It's a bit of... More

A very attractive and atmospheric canyon. Probably the best in the area. Good access to several parts with plenty of bridges to view the site well. The length of walk can be as short or as long as you wish.

If you only have a short time to visit the canyon, drive to bridge 1 and do the short walk from there. If you have more time (2 hrs+) it is worth your while to park at bridge 5 (not as busy), walk up to the tea house/top, and then walk back to bridge 5. The more spectacular part of... More
