    Maligne Canyon - waterfalls

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Between 3rd and 4th bridges in Maligne Canyon, Maligne River widens a bit. There are a few underground rivers and streams flowing out of rocks. The photo shows an interesting looking stream-turned-waterfalls merging into Maligne River

    Maligne Canyon - 1st Bridge

    by mht_in_la Written Jun 30, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Maligne Canyon is one of my favorite hikes in Jasper. Its 3.7 km trail is alongside Maligne River with plenty of ups and downs. There are 6 bridges along the trail, numbered 1 through 6. You can enter the trail from either 1st, 2nd, 5th, or 6th bridge.

    The deepest canyon view is at 1st and 2nd bridges (the 2nd is my favorite, truly breathtaking). Around 3rd and 4th, you'll see interesting waterfalls and underground rivers. The 5th and 6th bridges are much closer to the water level where Maligne River has widened.

    Maligne Canyon

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most spectacular gorges in the Canadian Rockies, sheer limestone walls plunge to depths of over 50 metres (165 ft.). An interpretive trail winds its way from a picnic area across six bridges where you can catch the spray from the thundering Maligne River, or peer into the mossy depths. Open year-round

    Maligne Canyon

    Sliding glacier ice sheets and the relentless flow of water have gouged a deep, winding trench in the bowels of the earth. The hiking trail picks its way along the lip of the canyon, crossing it over 5 bridges. The first and second bridge offer the most spectacular views of the canyon and the rushing water far, far below.

    Take some time to walk and enjoy

    by CdnJane Written Nov 7, 2012

    There are lots of waterfalls, and canyons to stop and enjoy. Even for a few minutes to get some fresh air, and stretch your legs, you might just see something you'll be glad you didn't miss.

    waterfalls

    Don't remeber exactly what these falls were called, I will check...but they were just off the highway in between Lake Louise and Jasper.
