The canyon has fascinated geologists for decades. How old and
how did it form are two of the questions they are trying to

the waterfalls become "frozen in time". Some adventurers
will climb the falls.

canyon is on the same road as the Jasper Park Lodge and the highway turnoff is
11 kilometers East of Jasper (10 minute easy drive). 16 kilometers
past the turnoff for Maligne Canyon is MEDICINE LAKE. The local natives named this place "Bad Medicine Lake" because they did not understand the strange phenomenon that occurs here every spring and fall. Driver from Jasper to Medicine Lake in about 40 minutes.
