There were many informative plaques here as oppose to other spots within Jasper so that was appreciated. I also was happy to find out that this mountain was named after a nurse.

I climbed up here in the darkness at 4am to catch the sunrise, there was ice everywhere, it was snowing and I had absolutely no idea where I was going- supposedly bears so there was certainly enough mystery and danger involved to keep me interested! It was absolutely beautiful up there and I got some amazing photographs, I am happy... More

The longest of the hikes was closed when we attended at the end of June 2015. The view of the Edith Cavell and other glaciers were different. Recommend to arrive early as the car park fills very quickly and the trails get popular. It is a steady walk up to the viewing platform but well worth it.

We used to love to walk to the glacier and out on to the ice. We were so sorry when it all came crashing down. Now we have to walk up to the meadows and just look down!

Stop at Cavell Lake on the drive up and you will be impressed with the turquoise water and spectacular views. Take a short walk down the trail to the bridge for amazing scenery. Then continue to the end of the trail and hike the trail to the glacier.

Great place to hike and back country camp. You can easily make it a 2-7 day trip. I would recommend it to any level of hiker.

After hiking and visiting the Canadian Rockies (Banff, Yoho, Kootenay and Jasper) for a week, this was one of the most impressive views I saw my entire visit. The road to Edith Cavell and Angel Glacier (Mt. Edith Cavell Road) is only open seasonally and closes after the first heavy snowfall. Sometimes the road closes in September, and sometimes it...

One of the best places to see in the Canadian Rockies. The drive from Jasper to the parking lot where you start hiking is great. Take your time and stop your car to admire the surroundings. The hike is great and rewarding.

While cycling up mount Edith Cavell May 2007, about half way up the 9 miles to the youth hostel (was deserted-opens in June) I saw a wolf in the corner of my eye standing in a rocky outcrop looking down at me 30 feet away. I climbed up the rocks and could see the wolves under the branches 50 feet... More

It was a beautiful mountain view of the Glaciers. Once we got there, we had no clue what to expect. We hiked up just a little bit...thought it's pretty. Not until I continued to climb the hill and reached the top area that it exceeded my expectations. I'm so glad I continued. The history behind this Glacier was so interesting.... More
