This hike is well-paved with safety fencing and leads to some gorgeous views. It is such a deep canyon, and the views are beautiful. We started at the 2nd bridge and walked to the 4th and back. We could have driven over to the 5th bridge, but were too tired. You can also drive to the 7th, hike a bit... More

Don't need to go further than 3rd bridge. If you do you will say at the end why did I go past 3rd bridge. Start at bridge 1 near the gift shop even if you park near track for bridge 2. The bridges get less impressive as you go. We walked to 5 th bridge and wondered why. As did... More

So many beautiful and unique areas in the canyon, but if you return a different way than you head out, be sure to know how long the trip will be. We got lost and took a shortcut, which had areas that were almost straight up.

The paths at the top of the Canyon get pretty crowded so you have to fight for a good position to view the canyon and waterfalls. The paths also get wet and slippery so you need to watch your step. You can view the upper reaches quite easily but it's a bit of a hike down if you want to... More

Really nice walk down the canyon - we didn't have much time so we only went down to the 4th bridge but we'd love to go back and explore the rest of the trail. It was pretty busy while we were there and you need to watch your footing but the views were fab.

Maligne Canyon is stunning in any season. It's a challenge in winter, but the frozen waterfalls are worth the work. In the summer, every level of the descent offers stunning views. Not to be missed.

I was disappointed in this due to the crowds and all the steps and hills on the way back. My review might be tainted by our three teenagers who were not into hiking that day. It was pretty, but not as great as all the previous reviews.There are 6 bridges and we only made it to the 4th which was... More

Wonderful hike in and around the Maligne Canyon that everyone in our group loved. We visited early in the morning (9am) which was perfect for two reasons: we beat the crowds and the lighting at this time of day created wonderful photographs. There are numerous stunning views as you watch the river enter the canyon and carve its way through... More

Definitely worth a visit to see stunning nature in action - cafe isn't dreadful either. Worth knowing ( we didn't) that you can park at the fifth bridge, hike up to the cafe at mid point then go back down again. There are slippy areas and steep bits on the trail so wear appropriate footwear.
