    Our favorite hike
    This was our favorite pure hike of our whole vacation. The whole area is beautiful and awe inspiring. This hike is challenging, but most can do it with time. Make sure to go down to the glacier lake and hike up the mountain trail.

    Highlight of trip for teenage son
    This hike was one of the highlights of our trip for our 19 year old son because he was blown away by the sight and sounds of the Angel Glacier. The hike could be challenging at times if you continue onto the meadows. I could have stopped once completing the short trail to view the Angel Glacier but my husband and son were really glad we continue to the meadows--even thought it was raining!

    Worth the winding drive to the top
    The drive is a winding one from Jasper and is 27kms. Plenty of parking but gets busy and full at peak times. We arrived at lunchtime on a Sunday and had to wait for a space to become available. The trail is well paved. The walk has some steep areas but it is worth the hike for the views at the end. At the end of the trail, the ground becomes uneven so watch your step on the stones.

    Totally worth it.
    This was one of several “quick & easy hikes” (oxymoron) we did during our visit to the Canadian Rockies this Fall. Totally worth it. Highly recommend visiting the stream/pond area that’s on a short side road you drive past on the way in/out of the Glacier area.

Beautiful scenery and worth the hike. You can just do a short walk up to the glacier. Definitely recommend going in the morning to get a car park and to have the sun on the glacier

Our adventure to Mount Edith Cavell began by missing the turn off from the main highway but.. this turned out well as we ended up at Athabasca Falls ! ( A Very Nice Missing The Turn off ).From Athabasca Falls road signage directed us to Edith Cavell.Some people mentioned parking a issue at the base of the Hike but when we arrived around noon parking was no issue.The initial paved pathway partially up to the mountain was probably the most challenging section so we decided walking beside the paved section on the rock and dirt was easier on our legs.Once we passed the first rest bench the glacial valley opens up to panoramic views and the hike was easy on us from there to the Cavell Glacial pond.Sitting atop one of the larger rocks taking in the views left us in Awe.Take in consideration that a 3000 metre tall mountain stands majestically in from of you makes one feel very little in comparison.The Glacier gave us a momentary " hold our breathe " when the sound of ice moving over the mountain became very prominent in comparison to a low rumble jet engine flying overhead.After a lunch break in a most spectacular viewing setting we decide to hike the area trail in what was once covered in glacial ice just 70 years ago.Definitely worth future hikes to Mount Edith Cavell !

I took my wife and 7-y-old daughter to that beautiful place out of Jasper town 30 min by using hwys # 93 and 93A. Drove mountains up, saw a black beer eating by the road, and arrived to the parking area. We walked for 40 min one way to the small glacial lake and water falls meeting the lake, we collected 9 liters of that pure high energetic water in a jug, took many pics and videos, walked back to the parking 45 min. Many international and Canadian tourists daily visit this area, we'd say probably over a thousand daily. There are rustic bathrooms on the 2 parking levels and handicap accessibility to the outlook only. Great experience for life for sure for us! We'll be back again whenever we can make it. C, M & S.

This is definitely a worthwhile short hike. The small glacial lake with chunks of ice floating around at the foot of the glacier, surrounded by these huge mountain is an amazing sight. Get there early during the busy season.

The Canadian Rockies offer spectacular opportunities for daily hikes. At the top of the list there are a few selected: Lake O'Hara to Opabin Prospect lookout; Lake Louise to Six Glaciers teahouse and Beehive; and Mt. Edith Cavell to the 360 degrees summit. Then in fall you have to add Larch Valley around Moraine Lake. This hike is only about 9.5 Km round trip, with a steep 300 meters ascend at the very end. With my family of 4 we first visited the spectacular Cavell Pond, stay there for a long time, and then continued to the Cavell Meadows. There is a point where the trail ends, but you don't have a 360 view. DON'T STOP THERE, unless you are truly afraid of a steep, slippery at times ascend. Go on to the top of the rock pile, gaining another 300 meters of elevation to 2,583msnm. Then at the top, you will have not only Mt. Edith Cavell, its pond and the view to the Meadows and Jasper (north), but also a breathtaking open view to the Athabasca valley river (South), and an impressive view to the East, where you can see some of the peaks of the Queen Elizabeth Ranges. Tip: to see the Pond in all of its beauty during summer, visit the Pond before 1pm. After that hour the Pond starts to move to the shade of Mt. Edith Cavell. 10/10 for the Pond, 10/10 for the Meadows (incredibly beautiful), 10/10 for the views.
