Amazing.

Superb. Easy to find just park in the lot and walk to the glacier viewing point. There was also a hike up to the meadows which looked interesting.

Amazing place and the only reason this isn't number one is that fewer people visit there. Thankfully. Magnificent, beautiful, peaceful and offers spectacular scenery / turquoise lake, glacier, icebergs, distant views. ....to name but a few. Highly recommend if you are a nature loving visitor. I would hate this beautiful place to be blighted like others in the NP's by... More

We arrived mid-morning on a weekday, around 9:30, to find the parking lot absolutely packed. A bit upset at the crowds, we nonetheless got out and started out on our hike to summit the mountain. There is a paved pathway that leads to the overlook for Angel Glacier. Beautiful spot for pictures, but again, crowded. We started on the hike... More

Must go! It's a beautiful, easy walk. You reach a small lake/pond with icebergs floating in it about halfway through the walk. It is magical, and beautiful.

Went to Mount Edith Cavell the day after snow fell in late August and it was magical! The walk up was only moderately challenging, lots of steps but if you take your time it's fine. Also gives you a chance to enjoy the incredible views. I went with sundogs as part of their guided tour and it was great! Hearing... More

It's a 30 mins moderate hike from parking lot and you can see the Glacier from a close distance. Amazing view!!

The quality of the experience here may vary by time of year, but I found it to be pretty spectacular the first week of August. The shorter trail to the glacier is fairly easy and provides good views of the area and of the melt water/ice running into the pond. If you listen, you can actually here as the amount... More

This hike was my favorite of our whole Jasper trip. The path is really nicely paved and it is pretty steep but the views are incredible. The path even has benches along it so you can stop and rest or just take in all of the scenery. The view at the end of the Path of the Glacier trail is... More
