We decided to hike to Maligne Canyon this morning. Frommer’s suggested starting at Sixth Bridge, hiking to the canyon (20 minutes), and starting from the bottom and walk up to the top. I agree with starting at the bottom but there is really no reason to start from Sixth Bridge. The hike is uninteresting. There is a Fifth Bridge parking lot that actually starts at the bottom of the canyon. This would have saved us quite a lot of time and we would have been able to see the entire canyon then. The canyon was nice but after seeing Mistaya Canyon and Johnston Canyon (2007), I had seen enough. We had to get back to the hotel to check out by 11 AM.
