Maligne Canyon to Old Fort Point Trail is a 4.4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Municipality Of Jasper, AB that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible from May until October.
Good trail for the kids as it is well taken care of.
A must do if you're in jasper. Absolutely beautiful.
I hiked the Old Fort Point and the Red Squirrel portion of this trail. The Red Squirrel portion is a flat little trail that leads into Old Fort Point trail. Old Fort Point starts off ascending stairs down near the Athabasca River. You then start your climb on the trail. It is a decent pull and a very rewarding if not spectacular view. When I hiked to the summit there was a Big Horn Ram and his mate sitting on top of the mountain! great treat! We also came across a huge Elk and his Harlem on the Red Squirrel.
Also known as the 6 Bridges trail (Because there are 6 bridges which cross the Maligne River) The river has cut a deep Gorge into the rock (At the first few bridges), this is another trail, you can sorta customize you route, so it's as easy or difficult as you choose to make it) doing all 6 bridges, of coarse is the longest & most difficult, paths are paved early on but that disappears the farther you go, as well as the crowds.
very heavy traffic but the views are terrific.
One of the highlights of our family trip to Banff, despite the crowds. I would love to see it in the winter, but the rock formations from the waterflow and all the waterfalls were beautiful.
