Maligne Canyon is one of Jasper's most impressive landmarks.The rapid Maligne River has eroded the area for over thousands of years leaving it only one meter (three feet) deep in some areas but over 60 meters (200 feet) deep in others. As the canyon advances towards the Athabasca River, there is an interpretative trail that you can follow without a guide. But make sure that you are with the safety of guard rails. The rocks near the edge can get slippery, so heed caution as you take in the scenery of this breath taking landmark.
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.
