This is one of the most amazing/shocking places I've ever been. The glacier itself is amazing, It really looks like a big "angel" from behind, and a very tough guy! It's just awesome. The lake is really amazing, full of pieces of ice. At the side there was another glacier, and I said it was because a couple of years... More

The parking lot is a 40 min. drive from downtown Jasper. Take AB-93 4 miles south of town and turn right onto 93A. Go 3 miles and turn right again to go 8.4 miles up the Mt. Edith Cavell access road. Restrooms are at the parking lot. Go up the steps and continue along the paved path about 0.3 miles... More

This was my main motivation for walking the Mount Edith Cavell glacier trail. The hike was fun and the view of the glacier was beautiful. The day we were there it wasn't very crowded so the feeling of being in a deserted place was truly awesome!

This glacier clings to the north side of Mount Edith Cavell and is quite stunning. It can be easily viewed by taking the trail from the parking lot. However, you cannot get too close to it in case large chunks break off and fall into the lake, thereby creating possible flash floods. The view is well worth the climb.

Using the Mt. Edith Cavill trail to Angel Glacier was a wonderful experience. The trail to the glacier is .8 miles - but it is uphill the entire way! The path is clear and there are lots of areas to stop and take in the beautiful scenery (and catch your breath - for us low-landers!!!) along the trail. There were... More

My husband and I went to see this weeks after a big chunk of it broke off and flooded the area. Still very cool to see!

Short easy trail out to glacier viewpoint. Lots of signs to read with glacier history and science. Beautiful drive out to this area.

While most people seem satisfied with viewing this glacier from the Path of the Glacier trail, in my opinion, it is best viewed from various points along the Cavell Meadows trail. There is a small pond at the base of the glacier and when we were there it was filled with several small icebergs - quite a site.

This walk takes in the Angel Glacier, Edith Cavell meadows and mountain view. Car park is very busy so arrive early or you are parking along the road. Walk can be as long or as short as you like. You can just go and see the glacier or hike further up to the meadows or keep going to the top.... More
