Definitely not a hike, but a trail. Super easy, great place for a picnic and to see some wonderful waterfalls.

Meh. Crowded, only a few decent views. Easy hike if you only have an hour or two, but there are absolutely much better treks in the park.

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.

obviously a busy trail in the summer time. It is a great family walk, especially when there is a chance of rain, or overcast. we went when the smoke from forest fires in B.C. were particularly heavy. Beautiful walk with varied gain/ drop. Well recommended for all levels of age and experience. A great morning, afternoon, or evening hike.

Beautiful walk by the river and canyon. Fantastic views! We took 7h back, which was more of an uphill hike.

Excellent hike which brings you all the best the canyon has to offer! Waterfalls and do watch out for wildlife. This trail goes to the 5th bridge but you can add on the further 1.7km (one way) to the 6th bridge if you choose (easy and flat terrain). This hike is rated moderate because using 7h to get back to parking is extremely steep right where you join it after the turn at 5th bridge. It does level off after a while and then it’s easy to the end.

This was a midday activity for me and there was lots of people around. The canyon is really cool to see and the walk is easy with only one short steep section.

Nice walk into the impressive canyon.
Don’t miss the trail 7h, if you want to go back to parking “Maligne Canyon”.

Easy walk with fantastic views into the canyon. So many waterfalls in one place! And the few park info signs throughout were nice for learning a bit about how the canyon formed. Crowd wasn't an issue for us, but we got there around 7am

Solid trail as it's hard enough to give satisfaction, but not easy enough to be a stroll in the woods. Always the risk of seeing some wild animals is a bonus.

Absolutely correct to bear left so you end up going down stairs. Your finish should be on trail 7h returning to the main parking lot. Unbelievable chasm. We liked the walk down with the river on our left.

Great trail! parked at bridge 5 then went towards bridge 2 (busy) then took 7H back its beautiful and not as busy.

Trail is rated as moderate, however the vast majority of it is relatively easy. If wet the trail can be muddy and the rocks can be slippery. There are a few different trails you can take to the same area. Heading from the 5th bridge back to the 1/2 bridge via trail 7H is very steep, however cuts the route down by approx. 400-600 meters. My wife and I always do this when we come to Jasper. Always a recommendation when in Jasper

great views of the falls. some steep parts here and there but very fun

This was a wonderful trail. The canyon was spectacular - we've never seen anything both deep & narrow as this, with very interesting rock formations/ walls & multiple falls. The walk had a lot of elevation change but it wasn't very challenging.

Beautiful hike with exceptional views of the canyon from the various bridges. The hike to bridge 3 or 4 is an easy, doable hike. We didn't see the fourth bridge somehow but did the loop to the 5th bridge, then all the way to the 6th and looped back. The 6th bridge was overrated, least favourite view. But if you parked at the 6th bridge and walked up and counted down from the bridges it would be enjoyable. Overall, amazing hike - would recommend and hope to come back again!

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on. Not difficult at all if you stay along the canyon, does get a little steep in parts on the upper loop.

Absolutely beautiful. My 8 year old son and I did it and loved it. We went from the first bridge down to the 5th bridge and back up. The falls along the route are amazing. Start early (8-8:30am) because it gets pretty crowded.
