We drove to the car park arriving at 8:45, well before the crowds. It was cold at that time (3 deg C) but great to be with only a handful of other people (also the car park is not very big so the earlier the better). We only had time to do the short walk to the foot of the... More

We went to see Mt. Edith Cavell in the rain, but it was totally worth it. When we got to the end of the trail, looking up, the mountains were right in front of us, coming down! It's a surreal feeling. We got to see the glacier and the lake. Did not go beyond the trail, but it was very... More

do not do like most of the tourists and stop at the glaciers. Go all the way, you get amazing view of the glaciers from higher up, see lots of wild flowers and will probably have marmots waiting for you close to the top. just one warning, did this hike mid july and the mosquitoes were everywhere....

This is a popular spot, and you need a bit of energy to complete it, but thank goodness for Parks Canada, who warned us in the brochure to go before 10 a.m. or after 3 p.m. to have a quieter experience. Such a special place - the views are amazing, the paths a bit challenging, but the reward was there.... More

You can walk a short distance from the parking lot to look at Mt. Edith Cavell and Angel Glacier, or hike the Cavell Meadows trail to get an even better look at both. Either way, the view is beautiful!

The drive up Mt. Edith Cavell is lovely with many great views all the way up. Take your photos as you go because the clouds move fast and the view might not be the same coming down. It is a nice road, though windy, so large RV's are not allowed on the road. There is a nice meadow trail leaving... More

We didn't plan on going. At last minute, we decided to make the climb up the steep road with many, many switchbacks. But so happy we did! Beautiful view, an easy hike up the hill to the closest viewpoint of a glacier.

We stopped by and hiked to the glacier look out, and it was a great idea. It was getting hot and we needed to cool off! The closer to the glacier you get, the cooler it gets. Tips: - wear appropriate shoes. - take water - take your camera!

A quick side trip, beautiful drive up the mountain and short hike to view Angel Glacier. It was too early in the season for the longer hike to the wildflower meadow.

Be sure to read the plaques to learn the interesting history of Edith Cavell and how this location was first discovered. The history is interesting. The views are magnificent.
