Great trail to start getting more difficult terrain. The trail is in great shape despite snow all morning.

Good hiking course for all ages. Occasional hills but nothing significant. Highly recommend for family hike!!

Easy trail with great views. Saw tons of wildlife including goats, chipmunks and even a wolf!

I love the 5 Lakes so much, I never do the loop. I do it as an out and back to see the lakes twice!! This is a prefect time to go to beat all the high season crowds!!

The trail head is off Hwy 93A not 93., as per directions in the App.
We would definitely hike it again! Some snow but no mosquitos!
Beautiful views, variety of terrain and the trail was pretty well marked.

Busy, but its definitely worth sharing with the crowds to see this amazing canyon/gorge.

Well maintained, right off the highway, and you can choose how far you go by deciding how many bridges you can get to so it's good for all levels and abilities. You get some great scenery without walking far... or those looking for a challenge can venture further.

There are 6 bridges and to hike the full 6 bridge loop will take two or three hours with stops for photos.

The 5 lakes are each unique and beautiful. This was a pretty long hike but worth doing. Since it’s a loop, you can go whichever way you prefer, but I think going from the 1st to 5th is best since I think the 1st lake is the less awe-inspiring one. That may be just because you don’t get as good a viewpoint of the 1st as you do the others though. From the parking lot, you will go through some trees, onto a small wooden bridge, and then through a forested area where you will have to do some downhill and uphill hiking. If you go left, you will be going to the 1st lake, the trail that goes along the back edge of the lake (if you continue left) connects to another trail so you probably don’t want to go too far down that path since you will have to back track to continue on to the other lakes. As you continue along the path this time to the right, you will find yourself on the back edge of the 2nd lake, then the 3rd and 4th. Between the 3rd and 4th lakes, you will find a set of the iconic red chairs you can find in various locations in the national parks. It’s a great spot for enjoying the view. The 5th and final lake has a small floating dock that you can walk into and take pictures from.

The canyons are incredibly beautiful. I started off at the 5th bridge. Once you cross the bridge and continue on the trail toward bridges 1 through 4, there will be 2 options: one runs right next to the canyon, and the other takes you higher up. I recommend you take one on the way to the other bridges and the other on the return trip. The higher trail provides incredible views of the canyon and surrounding mountains. The lower trail will give you a good look at all the unique features of the canyon. There’s a restaurant, gift shop, and bathrooms near bridges 1 and 2 so you might want to pop in before returning. Bridges 1 and 2 are pretty busy so it’s nice to go to the farther bridges.

Nice moderate hike. My mom who does not hike regularly at all managed it just fine. It does get muddy in spots and had a couple steep hills. we did 5th lake to first lake it seemed like the less popular way to go as we were against the flow more than we were with the flow. Some narrow spots so remember to share the trail. I saw two groups heading in with strollers..... that I would not recommend unless carrying a child in one arm and a stroller in another is something you want to do

I’ve hiked this trail and bikes it, did the full loop from old fort point on the bike, beautiful whichever way, not overly challenging on the bike, but some pretty steep climbs if you don’t drive to the trail head, and go right from jasper.

Really great views!!! Short, and a bit of a steep incline, but worth it! Nice after dinner hike

Nice walk, great views! Can be a bit busy

Very nice hike and the view at the "summit" is just amazing !
When the sky is clear you can see mountains and mountains

Great trail. We went at sunset and the views were amazing (plus hardly anyone was around). Whilst up there we saw loads of wildlife (including big horn sheep). Thoroughly recommend.

Super awesome view for a fairly easy hike. Some steep areas but worth it. Definitely going to do this hike next time I’m in town! Lots of horse poop so keep a look out!

Gorgeous hike with lots of picture perfect views. Was not too busy around 11am for us. Some steep hills but manageable. Would definitely recommend this one!

A nice and pleasant easy hike (with some small hills) with some pretty lakes. However, it’s a very crowded trail with big groups of tourists because of its location, etc. We were almost knocked off the trail by a tour group at one point, and we ran into two different people smoking cigarettes on the hike.

Thus, while the views are good and it’s short & sweet, just understand what you’re getting into if you visit during peak hours.

This hike was better than expected! We started at the fifth lake and did the short loop. The lakes were gorgeous! It took us almost two hours with lots of stops. There were ups and downs, but just the right amount of both. We went about lunchtime and the hike wasn’t that crowded which was nice. I think it helps to go after Labor Day. I highly recommend.

Nice short hike. Great views of the lakes and the town of Jasper

Gorgeous and very doable for all hiking types! This app made it easy to stay on the right trail! Awesome!

One of my favorite hikes in Jasper National Park. I love the canyon views and waterfalls...very scenic and lots of photo opportunities. I highly recommend parking at the 6th bridge and walking to the 1st bridge following trail 7 along the river. Then take 7h on the way back. All the tour buses park at the 1st bridge and it’s fairly crowded from the 1st to 2nd bridge. By starting at the 6th bridge, you walk upstream into the canyon which begins around the 4th bridge and gets more amazing from the 4th to the 1st bridge. There were about 10 cars in the parking area at the 6th bridge at 10 AM and about 10 when we finished the hike returned 3 hrs later.

A nice walk with great views of the canyon and waterfall.

Nice hike, did it with three youths. Muddy in some spots and very busy. Nice views. Be prepared for a couple steep hills.

Super belle vue mais beaucoup de boue pour un chemin aménagé. Super achalandé près du canyon même si nous nous sommes rendue vers 0800AM. Aujourd'hui c'était suler bouetteux. Nous avons continué sur le chemin 7 de l'autre côté de la rue et c'était enfin tranquille.

note to Samsung users: do NOT put ur phone in power saving mode or else you'll end up with a recording like mine... totally inaccurate. anyway, this hike was described as an after-dinner walk. I would say it's a little more challenging than that. its still easy but it had been raining so the trails were quite muddy and you need proper footwear.

I was in Jasper two weekends ago and luckily the smoke didn’t hinder our trip. Before hitting Miette Hot Springs, we stopped by Maligne Canyon to walk through 4-5 bridges. It’s a busy trail, what with all the tourists, but the canyon is quite lovely. Just past the 4th bridge there was a spot to sit on the rocks by the water, which made it even better - you were off the trail and could just take in the rapid water and all the greenery. It was a good 3 hour detour!

One of my favorite hikes we did in Banff. The continuous changes in terrain make it constantly exciting. Nice break from all the touristy hikes nearby.

Great trail with a nice mix of open and scenic areas, and more forested areas too. Open areas tended to have more people around, but didn’t feel crowded. Forested areas were a lot quieter.

absolutely stunning waterfall on the far side of first lake. this was a very enjoyable hike despite clouds and smoke. will be returning soon. hubby and I were astounded to find hardly any mosquitoes.
