Maligne Canyon is a natural feature located in the Jasper National Park near Jasper, Alberta, Canada. Eroded out of the Palliser Formation, the canyon measures over 50 meters (160 ft) high. Popular for sightseeing and exploration, the area contains waterfalls, stream outlets, birds and plant life.
Very beautiful and not too commercialized and overrun with tourists.
Definitely within the top 5 things to do in Jasper NP. Drive up to the 5th bridge then work your way down to the first - the pathways are well maintained, and at each bridge you can walk out and observe how the canyon changes. Spectacular views and a nice walk. Once reaching the lower bridge, you can take a different route up the hill and walk through some pristine forest with excellent panoramic views of the Jasper Valley.
The canyon is not quite like anything I've ever seen. It was very narrow and very deep. How wide? In some places at the service, 6 to 8 feet wide. How deep? Probably in some places the chasm was nearly 100 feet. There is a trail with bridges that afforded those hiking, glimpses into the chasm. The stream flows heavily, but because it is so deep, in some places, the roar of the stream can barely be heard. Definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of geologic features.
