  • It wasn't much of a hike, really. More like a short walk from top of hill to bottom of hill, where you then cross a bridge and take in the breathtaking sight before you. We had heard about this place ...  more »
  • Quiet walk and a very beautiful view. Quiet ride for all ages. Worth the visit.

  • Icefield Parkway by the halfway point, and seems to have gone down about 10 minutes on foot. Look at the river and the bridge over the Valley, and when there comes the Rocky Mountain representative.

  • 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.
