Place to Be: Maligne Canyon, Jasper National Park

One of Jasper’s most popular tourist attractions, Maligne Canyon is renowned for its breathtaking scenery and impressive canyons that have been carved out for decades of glacier runoff.

There is a total of six bridges on the trail with four that crosses the canyong gorge, each offering a special view. The first two are normally packed with visitors but because we came during the shoulder season (as well as early in the morning), we were rewarded with hardly anyone in sight.

If you’re looking for a casual walk, head over to the First and Second bridges which takes you to the deepest canyon that drops to a depth of more than 50m. If you’re up for a longer walk, you can continue the exploration and walk along the rim of the canyon all the way to the Sixth Bridge. We opted to make our way back after the Fifth Bridge as we needed to head to our campsite to set up.

The track is approximately 4.5km long and took us about 2 hours to complete. Throughout the track, you will be blessed with the views of gushing waterfalls, natural rock formations and the surrounding forest.
