Maligne Canyon is one of Jasper's most spectacular landmarks. Eroded by the fast-flowing Maligne River for thousands of years, it is only one meter (three feet) across in some places, but over 60 meters (200 feet) deep. There is a self-guided interpretive trail with several bridges, which follows the canyon as it courses towards the Athabasca River. It becomes a fantasy land of ice in the winter when small streams freeze into huge twisted icicles. Make sure you stay within the guard rails. The rocks near the edge are slippery, so be cautious while you're enjoying the splendid scenery.
We hiked the whole length of about 7 km. It was a beautiful trail (if not a little dangerous on one slope about halfway through). Not too difficult, mostly level terrain. Plenty of area for picnics at the various bridges as well. No charge to see.
Nature at its best.
A 3.7 km trail follows and crosses (5 times) this impressive slit canyon and is probably the most walked trail in the Jasper National Park, although most people only visit the top part of the trail from the visitor centre.
It is a truely impressive sight watching the water tumble and bubble its way down the canyon.
