AAA Editor Notes

Maligne Canyon is 10 km (6.2 mi.) n.e. of Jasper via Maligne Lake Rd. A steep-walled ravine more than 50 metres (164 ft.) deep, this spectacular gorge carved by the rushing Maligne River is spanned by six footbridges. Evergreen-shaded trails hug the edge of the chasm, providing excellent views into its depths, and interpretive signs line the way. Nourished by cool mist from the river, bright green moss clings to the nearly vertical limestone walls. A parking lot at the Upper Canyon affords easy access to Maligne's most impressive waterfalls. Food is available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
