My friend and travelled to Marble Canyon on Sunday because it was such a warm sunny day. It was absolutely breathtaking with all the snow heaped on the banks and rocks. The walk up was fine with a bit of a steep hill at the beginning which was a bit slippery. We both had our ice pics on so that... More

Approximately 30 minutes drive out of Banff Townsite, along the Highway 93, you come across the Marble Canyon hike. It is an easy hike ideal for all ages but is not very handicap friendly since you must ascend stairs at the start of the hike. The hike is a (about) 1.6 Km round trip hike that offers stunningly beautiful scenery... More

We went on an extremely cold day so we didn't venture far in but the sights we saw were so beautiful! It was definitely worth the stop.

Just by fluke someone told me to visit. This is great because you park and you are already at the canyonm follow it, and yoi get to a beautiful waterfall. Thisbis definitely great if you have little kids or are with people who cannot do any extreme hiking

Marble Canyon is a fantastic burn for nerdy teenagers needing to exercise their lazy buns while breathing in the great outdoors! Good climb with awesome waterfall views along the way. A well paved trail taking about 45 minutes - round trip - for those used to walking around at home.

Great hike along the gorge. Trail is well maintained and easy to traverse. Head all the way to the end to see the beautiful waterfall. We enjoyed the views on our way back almost as much as on our way out.

I visited Marble Canyon by chance as Johnston Waterfalls were closed. Fortunately we chose this option and it is extremely nice. 45-minutes walk crossing several times the narrow gorge. At the end of the walk you will find a nice waterfall

If Johnston Canyon whetted your appetite for canyons this is the next place to visit. You won't have to haul your heavy photo equipment very far thanks to a very convenient car park. The many footbridges allow a good view on different corners of the canyon. The colours of both water and rocks offer great diversity depending on the light... More

This is located in Kootenay National Park. The highway to Kootenay is very scenic with grand mountains. Take a walk into Marble Canyon to the waterfall. Most reviews will tell you it takes about 30 minutes; for us, it was closer to an hour. There is some uphill, but not at all strenuous. We met one man coming out, and... More
