we only did the simple walk and did this comfortably. Canadian ideas about walks can sometimes we more like a hike - they are a very fit nation. definitely worth a visit.

The views into the canyon are magnificent. there's a lovely gift shop - very expensive sculptures ($600,000.00) on display, a brilliant snack bar. I fed a cookie to a chipmunk - excellent!!

This is a popular trail, so get there early. Pretty canyon with beautiful water and views. If you are going to walk along the canyon, park at the lot by the hostel take the trail 7 along the canyon after a while, you will come to a major junction where you can take 7f back. You avoid some steepness on... More

Bridges 1 to 5 are within about 2km of each other, making for an interesting and beautiful walk along the Canyon (4km round trip). Bridge 6 is quite a bit further on if you want to do a bigger loop. Our plan was to park at bridge 5, walk to the cafe just by the falls, near bridge 1, have... More

There are six bridges to cross over the canyon that give a remarkable view of the canyon below. A tea house stands at the end of the parking kot where you can get a snack (the artwork and statues are WAY overpriced - a jade bear was $1,000,000). All in all, it was a very pleasant two hours.

We almost did not go as this was after a great, long hike up the Bald Hill but glad we did. We were going to start at the bottom, bridge 6 and walk up and then down but started at the top. It was a rainy day so there were not as many visitors there as there may be on... More

My husband was unable to walk down to the canyon. While the path is paved it is quite steep. A beautiful place!

Only a short drive from jasper and an amazing place to see and hear. Lots of space so you don't feel to crowded with other tourists.

This was the first time here. Another tourist told us about this place and "wow" is all I can say. Not an easy hike but well worth it. The weather was not nice so we didn't do the whole thing.

To truly enjoy this beautiful place on earth, you must set aside 2 to 3 hours to walk down beside the canyon and back up again. There are several bridges that to cross over the canyon to provide fabulous views well above the floor where the water is rushing below. We visited in September, when the water is less than... More
