The Maligne Canyon hike along wonderful paths and bridges features a very narrow and deep rock chasm formed by water coming underground from Medicine Lake. It is both beautiful and interesting! We went in from the upper end and hiked down 4 or 5 bridges. Quite a bit of up/down so not for those who prefer flat trails. But if... More

we were fortunate with 12 degree weather and sunshine but if you're not familiar with ice walks, rent the shoe spikes in town... It's worth it!

What a fascinating place to see in the winter - and at night. I really enjoyed the opportunity to look at some interesting geology in the canyon and see how the system changed from winter to summer. Well worth it for rock geeks.

A must-see. Fantastic gorge of raging, crashing waterfalls all laid out so it is relatively easy to go from the top to the bottom (lots of steps of course) but well worth every step. No description could truly do this place justice - lost count of the number of photos I took and I wish I had taken lots more.... More

I did the guided Ice-walk through Maligne Canyon and it was incredible! Especially our guide John was just a volt of knowledge and those interesting facts and many stories all about the area and the history of the canyon and the surrounding mountains (you won't get to hear it without a guide) made it very special! I highly recommend doing... More

this is a beautiful easy walk at the edge of the river. a very narrow canyon with over hanging fauna creates a photographers dream.

We had a lovely time at the Canyon, but if you have your own car, then skip the tour and rent the cleats yourself from one of the local ski shops. That way you can tour on your own time and enjoy the canyon for as long as you like.

Beautiful stop with breathtaking views. There a bridges over top of deep gorges where you can feel the cold spray of ice water on your face from the waterfalls. There are many locations for pictures and memories that will last a lifetime.

Make sure you wear ice grippers and it would be easier to enter from 5 th bridge so you exit downhill! About the same distance, you climb either way!

Maligne Canyon is a must see when you travel through Jasper. We wanted to walk from the 5th bridge up to the main parking lot but the bridge was still missing (end Aug 2014). So we drove up to the lot which was a very busy place. However, if you follow the trails downstream, the crowd get small very quick.... More
