Beautiful locale. Takes close to an hour to get to from Jasper Townsite. Scenic drive. There are several great hiking areas that are mapped out well. I didn't do any paddling however I think this would be great in the future.

Stunning and beautiful hiking area divided up in 5 bridges. I started at 1st Bridge and made it to a bit further than 4th Bridge, then my time was running out as we had booked a tour at Maligne Lake same afternoon. The scenery was just stunning around each corner I went. You have to be fit getting around, it... More

Get there in the morning and avoid some crowds so you can get good video and pics of the canyon. Very impressive and quite a nice walk. Bit of an uphill slope on the way back but just leave yourself some time to take a rest and look around. Worth adding to your bucket list for sure.

You decide how far you would like to walk here - the shorter one which is relatively easy (which we did) or the longer one. Paths are generally well maintained, although some are a little rougher, but by no means unmanageable. The canyon itself, is well worth the visit. It is located in a natural forest and has been carved... More

We parked at the top and walked to the first bridge. Our main question was "Where is the water?" The answer is at the bottom of an extremely deep chasm. You can hear it, but only see it at various points. We thought about walking to the second bridge but people returning told us that it was some distance, and... More

The Maligne canyon hike is so relaxing, refreshing and breathtaking. I would say it's easy hike, about 3 hours from sixth bridge to first and back. Bring a camera, the views are breath taking and the fresh air, water sounds are such an amazing break from the city life. Staring at bridge 6 and waking to 1 is easier vs... More

Amazing experience thanks to our crew Beth and Moe. Beth did a fantastic job telling us about history and names and stories of the mountains and glaziers. Moe did a great job driving the boat. Very enjoyable. 👍👍

Had a great walk from 6th bridge to the 1st bridge not too strenuous as first thought! Having read reviews on trip advisor thought it was going to be a lot more difficult and confusing! But you can start at either end and it's well mapped out for you to follow, the waterfalls are beautiful, the canyon itself is awesome... More

We got some tips to do the first 2-3 bridges as they were the most impressive so we stuck to the tip. Overall, it's nice but wasn't blown away by the falls. Do the 3rd bridge and you can do the climb back up the hill as opposed to doing the stairs again. It's nice for a good pit stop... More
