The Maligne River cuts a 165-foot-deep gorge through limestone bedrock at Maligne Canyon. An interpretive trail winds its way along the river, switching from side to side over six bridges as the canyon progressively deepens. The 4-km (2½-mile) trail along the canyon can be crowded, especially near the trailhead. Just off the path, at the Maligne Canyon teahouse, are a restaurant and a good Native American crafts store. If you visit in winter, a Maligne Canyon ice walk offers spectacular scenery from the bottom of the frozen canyon.
