Marble Canyon – Kootenay National Park

Marble Canyon is a popular hike in Kootenay National Park near Lake Louise, Alberta. The hike is an easy 1 mile (1.6 km) out and back trail suitable for all skill levels with fencing along most areas. The trail follows Tokumm Creek which created Marble Canyon by cutting and carving it’s way through the rock. The trail begins from the parking area.


The trail features waterfalls and rapids with several bridges that cross over the slot canyon revealing the depth and power of the water that created the canyon.

Despite the remains from a 2003 forest fire there are plenty of beautiful views of the surrounding area and mountains along the way. From the first bridge you can look back downstream to view a natural stone bridge over the canyon with Vermilion Peak in the background. As you near the end of the canyon the sound of rushing water will be more evident until a pair of dramatic waterfalls are revealed.
