This is one of the loveliest canyon in the Canadian Rockies. Just follow the path leading gradually downhill through the forest to reach the canyon. A bridge spans the canyon at its narrowest point. The rushing waters of Mistaya River, which originates on a glacier high above Peyto Lake, can be heard rumbling into the depths of the canyon from far up the trail.
