Maligne CanyonOne of the most popular Jasper attractions is Maligne Canyon. A spectacular gorge, it plunges to depths 160 feet (48 m) and more.
A hike along the canyon is the ultimate way to experience it. You can start from various points along the canyon, and the trail crosses several bridges.

Medicine Lake
Nestled in the Maligne Valley, Medicine Lake isn’t really a lake but a catchwater basin for overflow glacial water from the Maligne River.
By early summer, the water pools up to form the lake.
Angel Glacier and Cavell Meadows

If you don’t want to walk too far, a short easy trail, just over 1 mile (1.6 km) roundtrip, takes you right up to the face of two glaciers.
Athabasca Falls in JasperAthabasca Falls is a waterfall in Jasper National Park on the upper Athabasca River, approximately 30 kilometres south of the townsite of Jasper, Alberta, Canada, and just west of the Icefields Parkway. A beautiful place to visit.
