We hiked to the top of Maligne Canyon from the sixth bridge parking area (Trail 7). Great scenery and, for geology buffs, a worthwhile exercise to see what you still remember. Will get crowded near the top but it moves quickly. For a little variety, take trail 7h back toward the sixth bridge parking area. You'll miss 95 % of the tourists. Round trip following these routes will be < 4 miles and only a few hundred ft of climb.

What a great first day in Jasper! This place is busy but take some time to walk beyond bridges 1 and 2 and you'll get some quiet time. The best views of the deepest parts of the canyon are bridges 1 and 2 but cover all 6 and you get to see the river before it starts cutting into the rock and all the way down to where it flattens off. Really stunning scenery and probably the one thing I would do if I only had 1 day in Jasper

This hike was great from start to finish. Beautiful gorge right from the start. Walk down as far as you like and it is all good. On the way back up, use the hiking trail (7f) as an alternate. It is less work and gives you a different perspective. Great, great hike though. Just spectacular.

We stopped here intending to have a quick look at the falls. We ended up hiking to the 3rd bridge (there are 5 bridges, and the hikes are of varying difficulty) and the kids, who had not been excited to stop, loved it. There are some truly spectacular views!

The 4th bridge was closed while we visited.

This review is really for Maligne Lake Road, at the beginning of which is Maligne Canyon. This road is outstanding for wildlife sightings. During our afternoon drive we saw a black bear feasting on dandelions, bighorn sheep, elk, and a grizzly bear, not to mention some pretty incredible wildflowers.
