We did the half hour round loop walk, but it took us longer as we stopped for photos and used the seating to sit and relax whilst taking in the views. There are lots of ‘wow’ moments along the way. It is fairly easy walk...More

If you’re traveling to or from Radium, take the time to do this!! You can get there and back well under a hour. It’s a easy hike, so no excuses!!

As other travelers know, you tend to have to drive a long ways from one vista/scenic point to another in Banff, Jasper and Kootenay NP's. We had had a long hiking day and were thinking about just passing Marble Canyon up, since it was a...More

This was a planned stop for us during our trip to the hot springs. The canyon was very impressive, and very deep. The rocks, scenery, icy water and falls were dramatic, and worth the visit and short hike. A boardwalk, stairs and paths make this...More

Marble Canyon is a beautiful canyon in the Kootenay National Park. The path is easy to walk and relatively flat. My friend and I loved the colours and the thundering roar of the canyon. Parks Canada was at the entrance to assist with helpful advice...More

This was one of the highlights of my vacation. Although somewhat treacherous during the winter the views of the snow crusted canyon are worth the risk I cannot wait to go hike it in the summer!! Truly amazing!
