“Scenic Canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The walk through the canyon is relatively easy and has great view of the river and the canyon. The signs explaining about the surrounding makes it even more interesting. We only got to the fifth bridge since the way was closed after it, so we went back through 7h trail. The trail is nice and although the climb is steeper it seems shorter way back.

“Humbled by Nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Planned to see the falls/canyon and was guided by other reviews. We walked up from the bottom (6th bridge) which is sign posted near beginning of Malign Road. Bridge 5 was closed after a positive bear siting that morning. We stopped to look at everything and took lots of photos and did the round walk in three hours. Much easier to have the downhill portion on the return walk. Moderate level of fitness required with a rise of about 50 metres overall. It was fascinating to see the change from a rapid moving river through to the narrow power of the falls. Made much more sense to me this way. Drive on to Lake Malign even if just for the fantastic food at the tea house. Had huge afternoon tea for two (not the high tea) with coffee for $15.00. Happiness filled.

“day trip to maligne canyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Took a day trip and had a great trip. The driver was informed and told us a lot about what we were seeing and the history of the area. The boat trip was also well worth the money and the guide gave us a lot of interesting information

“Wonderful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

The canyon is truly a wonderful experience - it's so interesting to see how the water has carved its way through the rock. We visited in the summer, but would also love to visit it in winter and try some ice climbing.
