Lots if wildlife.My young daughter was worried about the long hike and then I told her about who and why this mountain was named. She then announced that if Edit was strong enough to do what she did, then she could conquer this hike. Made us smile. Take your time, water and snacks. Go and see the Angel!

Get there early and avoid the crowds. The glacier is impressive but the path is closed so you cant get close up. The trail to the meadows requires you to carry bear spray..

Nice hike and the glacier is close enough for good shots. We even heard snow falling off the glacier twice and this make a thunder style loud noise. Worth the long snaky style road to get there.

Thanks to Jasper Parks as they have opened another trekking route half way between view point. Kids were disappointed as they could not go closer but the other route took us to a better view. Landscape is changing every time we go there..

Was a lovely site with its glacier and milky green lake at the foot of the mountain. We hiked along the trails and had lunch at a beautiful view point overlooking the mountain and glacier, well worth the effort. Beautiful scenery and saw my first marmot. A great day out.

Great exercise and views. Loved it. The climb and benches laid out every now and then made the climb and elevation easier. The view was wonderful.

If you have a car available, don't miss this on your trip in the parc. Buses are not allowed, so the tour operators will not taky you here. A 15 minute walk will take you close to a great glacier. The shape reminds of an angel with open wings.

Mt. Edith Cavel is not far from Jasper down the Icefields Parkway. My wife and I had been to Mt. Edith Cavell when we were in Jasper in 2009. The road was not not in good condition back then and it took quite a long time to get there. This visit was an easier drive this time and I made... More

The short hike to the view of the glacier and waterfalls is worth it. If you continue hiking you head up and will find your self in a beautiful meadow and some mosquitos. You could see wildlife along here too, 3 different marmots ran across the trail in front of me.

We had a wonderful,hike up to Edith Cavell. There is a nice trail that is a gentle incline up about 1km. At the end, one can see the angel glacier over a beautiful glacier fed lake. The waterfalls on the way up are charming, and it is well populated. If you are more adventurous, you can continue to the edge... More
