The water has carved into the Rock an amazing canyon that should not be missed by any visitor to the area A good Restaurant/shop/washroom facility and truly amazing views Do not hop the fence for a closer pic. for the Rock is "slippery when wet" and people die here annually

If it's your first time or 100th time in Jasper, you have to go to Maligne Canyon! Pack your walking/hiking shoes, camera, water and a snack. You descend rather sharply and then even out, but the terrain can get a little rough or slippy at times. Last time we went, 5th bridge was closed, so look ahead to make sure... More

Maligne Canyon was one of my favorites, but I think it was because we stayed at the hostel across the street, so it was close. We also went at 9pm so there was no one else there, a rarity in Jasper. The Canyon itself is amazing, it is so deep. It is a nice little hike to all the bridges... More

Great scenic and breathtaking hike. Moderate hike - down and then back up and well worth any huffing and puffing. Great water views constantly. Great fall views. Beautiful scenery. A must.

My sister and I visited Maligne canyon on a recent visit to Jasper. There are multiple bridges and you're able to tailor your hike to what you're comfortable with. The canyon was definitely worth seeing but not totally accessible so we stopped at the second bridge as we had a stroller and an infant with us.

We did only the top circuit of walking which is suitable for most hikers. There are rocks which can be uneven, but generally no steep inclines and you can get a great view of the falls. There are two other trails of increasing difficulty & inclines if you're fit and able to do so. Went on a weekday & it... More

Not very far from the city center, Maligne Canyon is a must visit on your trip to Jasper. Rock formations are a beauty in itself, but the real part is hiking the canyon. It has 3 loops - a 2 km (beginner/family) loop, a 5 km loop and a strenuous 9 km. We did the intermediate one, and were awed... More

Things had not really opened up for the warm season yet, so perhaps our take on it isn't appropriate for high season, but it was beautiful but did not seem to merit the level of hype it receives?

A lovely tea house waiting for you after this hike. Steep descent followed by a steep climb. You can choose several pathways depending on your physical abilities and amount of time you want to spend. It is a stunning view, but a lot of work to get there and back.

Nice hike. I started at parking lot 6 which gave me a longer hike to the canyon, which is what I wanted, and a bit more time taking a trail less travelled. Also avoided the high volume of people parked at the end of the trail where all the tour busses park. It was relatively easy hike, some stairs at... More
