If we had better footwear we could have hiked farther. Enjoyed the scenery as we walked. The trail was well marked.

There are six points to visit, we did 5 of them. We had a seven year old and a dog with us. I think the lack of washroom on the way made us turn back. We enjoyed the many different waterfalls, the canyon walls, the vegetation, the beautiful cliffs and rock formations. The colour of the river is turquoise, or... More

You must take the time to head to the Maligne Canyon and go for a hike. It's absolutely breathtaking.

We loved Maligne Canyon. We had a group of 8 who wanted a mild hike with nice viewpoints. We got just that! The walk along the canyon is family friendly with pathways and railings where necessary. There are signs at different points explaining the history which was interesting. We chose to climb up above the main path on the way... More

First visit was a shirt stop on another tour. So glad I returned on my own with my camera! Took the trail that bright me as far as fourth bridge and saw some breathtaking views. It was so nice to take my time and enjoy the scenery at my own pace. The hike is fairly easy but may be challenging... More

This was one of my favourite sites while visiting the Jasper area. There are several waterfalls and clear walking trails. Took about 1 hr return trip.

We took a boat ride that was perfect and gave us a fantastic view of the lake. Fortunately the boat was heated because it was a cold rainy day.

Maligne Canyon is a popular place to visit. Depending on what you want to do, you may choose to just do the 1st bridge viewpoint and take in the scenery or hike different trails on offer. One of the more popular ones is the 5th Bridge loop trail. It is an easy hike however there are numerous stairs and some... More

I started out by visiting Lake Annette and stopping at Lake Edith to take some pictures of the elk. The trail around Lake Annette is peaceful, but if you're short on time, skip it. The Maligne Canyon hike would have been nice to do, but due to time constraints, I stopped at a view of the viewpoints but didn't walk... More
