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.

Great trail even though at certain points can be very crowded but overall would recommend to all.

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

Not a challenging trail at all and heavily trafficked, but the views of the canyon and river make it worthwhile, 4 out of 5

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.
