Maligne Canyon is an hike with many views of the river, and of course the waterfall. The trails are well used, and they can be quite busy. Regardless the hike is 100% worth it

Path was easy to navigate to the top, where you are met with breathtaking views.

Great for a running! You can also meditate and make yogo with a view on the Rockies when you are at the top.

Great views, and nice walk for those visiting in the town of Canmore. Great for Elderly couples. But the sound of nature mixed with the sound of nearby construction let's you know you're in a town. Buildings being built right next to it?? Just takes away from it. I wouldn't go out of my way JUST to check this out.

Compared to EEOR, I found this hike to be quite easy. It's quite steep on the way up and we saw a lot of people with hiking poles, but it wasn't absolutely necessary to have them. There was no scrambling involved and for the most part, the path was quite easy. (Probably because it's so heavily trafficked). We went in the morning on a Wednesday and it wasn't busy at all. Just a few people here and there. It's a fun workout for a rewarding view. We kinda jogged some of the way down, so it only took us max 45 minutes to get to the bottom. Was a super fun hike and there were people of all ages on the trail!

Did the full loop with a group aged 11 to 43 with no backpacking experience. Perfect three-day hike for us. Lakes were a little mucky, so swimming wasn't an option. Lots of mosquitos. Some really nice views in places of lakes and mountains.

Very disappointed as well!!!! The trail starts in the middle of no where and ends in the middle of no where. It is not maintained---most of it you cannot even tell it is a trail. It doesn't appear to come anywhere close to Fort Saskatchewan. There was only 3 brief areas where you could see the river. Stathcona County you fail big time if this is your idea of a contribution to the TransCanada Trail!!!!???? NO STARS the review forced me to give a star to post.

If you are already in the Banff area it's a great trail to burn some time. Take a couple drinks to the top to enjoy the chairs and the view!

Relatively flat nice trail along a ridge looking over the valley and then a loop in the forest. In the forest, some parts of the trail may be closed for restoration, but you can work your way around with other paths. Little confusing in the forest, but overall pleasant hike.

moderate trail at the beginning with some steep uphill that will slow down even the most in shape hikers. Once at the lookout the view was spectacular, be sure to stay to the left in order to stay on trail. bring lots of water there is no water in the trail.

this was my 2nd mountain hike experience and my first one in the rockies... my phone died where it indicated the end point but we walked back along the lake to our starting point.
i thought the scramble part would be harder but it was great and we had a very informative conversation with the forest ranger at the top. we took jewel pass on the way back which was a beautiful trail

unfortunately we did not experience the spectacular views of the mountains due to smoke from the BC wild fires. I can only imagine what they look like but I did see pictures others had posted and they truly are gorgeous.

We did this hike with our three children ages 9 and 6. We found it very easy, with very few elevations, it was just long. The falls at the end were beautiful.
