  • Parking was efficient and free. The area was very clean. The trail was accessible for rugged hikers, general walking and even for a wheelchair up to at least the bridge view. Amazing photo and video opportunities. Definitely a place i'd revisit.
  • Short hike to a stunningly beautiful view! Well worth the stop.
  • Great Canyon! Still a bit wild, not as many tourists. And You can go and take a look at it from close by. In my opinion, best canyon in Banff and Jasper
  • This place is so peaceful and breath taking. Amazing how beautiful mother nature is.
  • After a small hike following down a trail you arrive to a bridge where you van admire this amazing spot. Very nice stop in your travel through the Rockies.
