You have to see it to believe it at the foot of this Glacier. Well worth the walk and taking a camera. Breathtaking and memorable. Take the short hike and see for yourself.

Although it was June, it was still, by my definition anyway, quite chilly, but then I am from Southern California. People were not chilly, however, and the scenery was spectacular!!!

This area is full of raw beauty and nature in all her glory! Loved the hiking and found the views spectacular. Canada has some of the most beautiful provincial and national parks in the world.

Although we did this trip several years ago I still remember how beautiful it was to drive up to Mt Edith Clavell and experience the lake and mountains at sunset. In the summer this is quite late in the evening but it is really worth it. Just be sure to bring your bug spray. Our visit was prior to 2014... More

If you are in or near Jasper it is worth following the windy road off the main highway just to get up to at least the foothills of this mountain. You can walk a good way up the mountain, and the views get better as you ascend. You can get great photo opportunities as well as views of the nearby... More

I went up in October and only hiked down to the lake. It was a stunning landscape. Much of the lake had a thin sheet of green ice on it and it was beautiful

Being sea level dwellers we were unsure how we would manage hiking at higher altitudes. The first stage to view Angel Glacier and Pond was easy along a well paved path surrounded by starkly beautiful scenery. Encouraged by this we walked part of the way to Cavell Meadows. At a boulder field we stopped as we had superb views across... More

We were camping off our motorcycles pretty close and took the ride up to the base of the trail to the glacier. A pretty short walk to the lake and glacier is easy and amazing. Cavell was a heroic WWI nurse and this is a great monument to her. The Canadian Rockies are all amazing but this certainly is one... More

I cannot believe there are only over 200 reviews! Either not many people done it or heard about it. You have to see it with your own eyes. It was one of the biggest highlights of my travels in Rocky mountains. I was blown away by the scenery of the glacier and its pond with massive ice chunks in it.... More

Follow the trail from the parking lot to your left for chance to get real close to the Angel glacier (taking the necessary precautions, of course, to avoid falling ice), and marvel at the majestic north face of Edith Cavell. Quiet sad though to consider how fast the glacier is retreating.
