Maligne Canyon, Jasper National Park, Alberta
Maligne Canyon has been created by erosion in limestone, a relatively soft and soluble stone. It is quite narrow in places (< 7 feet) and as deep as 165 feet. Walkways are above the canyon since there is not enough room in the canyon and any structures would be damaged during flooding.
