The site of the Canyon Maligne is really extremely beautiful and offer numerous spectacular points of view. Paths are very easy to walk. A magnificent place to be discovered.

We didn't know what to expect but this is a really nice walk - as long as you want to make it (up to about 6 miles!) - it follows a gorge cut through the limestone by the river and gives a real sense of how the river has worked its way down through the different strata. Lots of good... More

A incredible photo waits around every bend. Unlike some other Jasper sites, the canyon is easily accessible from parking lot and a short ride from Jasper. By all means, include this in you must do activities.

Easy access to the canyon and its bridges. You can start in the main lot walk down to five or more of the bridges then head back and stop for tea located right off the main lot.

This is a great little walk that gives you good views of this amazing, narrow canyon. Seeing the volume of water moving through such a narrow canyon is awesome. Take the walk through the abandoned part of the canyon and just imagine what it must have looked like when all the water was flowing through it.

We didn't have much time so we only did the walk down to the third bridge but it was very well worth it. The views of these falls from both sides of the canyon were incredible. It is a very easy walk to just go down to the third bridge.

This amazing canyon has to be on every visitors list. It wasn't too busy while we were there but it could get a lot busier. The short 2k loop is very do-able but the 4k loop is recommended even more.

Never seen something like this before. Beautiful falls and the loop was a greatly planned to build up the sequence of following the origin of the water. Worth the visit.
