The canyon is wonderful with great views down into the gorge, wonderful walks through the forest teeming with wildlife, flowers and beautiful trees. Great for walking off the excess breakfast pounds!!

Stunning canyon, lovely walk. Recommend driving up the road to Maligne canyon later in the afternoon. Saw lots of wildlife.

This was a great canyon, but due to a lack of information, we found ourselves following a path for a very long way, assuming that we would eventually be back to the parking lot where we started. There was a sign that notified us that the fifth bridge was closed, but we thought that meant that there was a bridge we wouldn't be able to use to enjoy one of the views of the canyon. We didn't realize that it meant that we wouldn't have any path for getting back to the parking lot if we continued on. There was no other information. It seemed that we had gone on for a very long time when we met some people coming the other way. They told us they had come from the sixth bridge parking lot and there was no way back to our parking lot without going back the way we came or proceeding to the sixth bridge parking lot and hiking back 3-4 miles on the highway to get to our car. Luckily, there were some other people on the trail who had family members that met them at the sixth bridge parking lot in a car. They offered to give us a ride. If they hadn't done that, we would have been forced to walk a lot longer than we intended that day. There should be more information given out to help prevent confusion.

Well worth a visit only a short walk to see the falls and the canyon longer walks if you feel like it. Restaurant rest rooms and gift shop also available.

We stopped by Maligne Canyon on our way back from Maligne Lake and we are so glad we did. This is such an interesting place. You can get a true appreciation of exactly how a canyon forms and you can follow it all the way from its origins to the main river. It is well worth walking the whole track, although bridge 5 was closed when we were there. That's not a problem because you can take a loop track back to the carpark so you are not retracing your steps. The walk is varied, interesting and very scenic. Not what we expected at all.
