Beautiful glacier and wildlife views with a moderate hike. We saw a lynx off the side of the road on our way to the parking lot, and numerous birds and pikas on the trail.

We climbed up the mountain on a rough trail to the meadows. In our opinion it's not worth the effort. Better stay near the lake and walk up the Path of the Glacier Trail until the end of the rockpile. High chance of seeing marmots...More

As other reviewers have said, a parking pass is necessary this year due to construction at the top lot. By the time we got ours the previous day, 11:30 was the earliest slot available, which we took. Maybe because rain was predicted for our day...More

Visiting Mt. Edith Cavell requires a trip to the info centre in Jasper the day before to pick up the free pass. This inconvenience is definitely worth it. Beautiful views, and great hiking with a couple of different peaks. The second peek was tough (steep,...More

Definitely worth the trip and the wait to get the permit. The colour of the pond is amazing with icebergs in it.

Travel to Edith Cavell is greatly reduced this year. To limit the number of visitors, every carload must have a pass to get in on any given day. Our guide had a permit, so we went in without an additional pass.

There a couple of levels. To the first point where you get a good view of the lake and glacier you could take a stroller and young child. Suggest that this should be the limit of your ambitions but worth doing Enjoy
