This is a magnificent half day hike with great access to a roaring tumbling river and an 80 plus foot falls in a very narrow deep gorge.You have options to explore this wonder.

This was a great hike, we had a chance to diverge a bit on a path that was not as well travelled. It was just the two of us, but the buffalo berry bushes had been well foraged along the way so we were not as concerned about bears. There were some open meadows and signs of wildlife but no... More

We hiked the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th, but stopped short of the 5th bridge. It's too far apart from the 4th bridge. But then later on, we found that there's a road from the main road to the Malign Canyon for car to go to the 5th and 6th bridge

We parked at the 5th bridge and walked all the way along the canyon up to the Maligne lodge which is a round trip,of about 1h30 with spectacular views of the canyon.

We did the hike from bridge # 5 to bridge # 1 (5km return) where the restaurant and gift shop are located. It is an easy and most pleasant hike, until you approach bridge # 1 where the busloads of tourists are dumped and whose main purpose in visiting the canyon is to take selfies.

Maligne Canyon is a great hike and beautiful. The views are amazing and highly recommend it to anyone. It's in Jasper and not far from the jasper gates. Bring your camera because your going to want to remember this.

The trail guide says it's an easy hike, but many parts are quite steep. There are 2 or 3 trails, and parts are paved because there are so many visitors. The ravine is dramatic in places, but I found other trails around Jasper more rewarding. I think this one is visited a lot because of it's proximity to Jasper.

After having dinner in Jasper, we headed for a nice evening drive to Maligne Lake. Super nice to do later in the day, saw some beautiful lakes as well as sheep along the road - even caught a gorgeous sunset on the way back.
