We really enjoyed our hiking in Marble Canyon. They have a few trails you can take. One goes up into the area where there had been a huge fire about 12 years ago, so you could see the area coming back to life. We took...More

On our way back from exploring the road down toward Radium Hot Springs we stopped at Marble Canyon. Boy were we in for a surprise. The canyon is amazing, and although there were people there it seemed like it was mostly off the radar for...More

A stunning place to visit. Quite busy but the trail was easy but interesting and the canyon was impressive. Also the surrounding area that had been devasted by fire and is now regenerating is also impressive. Particular the scale of it all. I'm a forester...More

There's a lot of information available about Marble Canyon as you walk through the trail. It's a simple reminder about what water is capable of doing. Beautiful hike with some beautiful views.

This is a beautiful, easy walk over the canyon that can probably be done in 30 minutes. Unlike Johnston Canyon where you are essentially inside the canyon, here you walk higher and higher and get to look down from above into it, which is pretty...More

This could be a quick stop if traveling through Kootenay National Park. It’s right off the highway. Easy path leading to a waterfall. Nice views along the way.

Compared to Johnston Canyon this is a little bit understated. Where the former is more in your face look at me this canyon is more look at me and see what happens over time. The way the river winds it's way through the canyon says...More

Kootenay is a fairly easy side trip from the much more crowded Banff National Park. Marble Canyon is the unquestionable highlight of the park. Compared to the much more heavily visited Johnston Canyon, off the Bow Valley Highway, parking here is much easier, the crowds...More

There are washrooms at the parking lot, and benches along the trail. I don't think they are actual picnic tables anywhere. There are lovely big flat rocks that will do just fine. FYI - in the Canadian Rockies, we like to... More
