This is one of the most worth while day hikes in jasper. Mount Edith Cavell, the tallest mountain in jasper national park at 3363m. The cavell meadow hike is my favorite but any time spent up here is time well spent none the less. On warm days keep your eyes open for avalanches crashing down Edith Cavell's steep faces

You can see this from a low level viewpoint, or you can take the higher trail. We did both. if you've got the time and energy it is well worthwhile going up the track to see it from higher ground. It is really worth the effort, especially if you are lucky enough to see it on a clear day.

Absolutely breathtaking! Especially when you come close to the glacier pond with huge ice chunks in it. The scenery and energy around it is impossible to describe in words. You have to experience it yourself to understand. Is a must to see, cant recommend it enough. Magical place!

It was an amazing place. We took the meadow trail and got a really great view of the Glacier. Be sure to go on a sunny day!

Its on Mt Edith Cavell, its my favourite glacier in the park. I have been photographing for over 30 years. It has and is slowly disappearing but remains one of the most iconic Glacier in the park. Best viewing point is from the Edith Cavell Meadows. Serious hike but wow does it show off the Glacier from an eye level... More

We took a short hike from the parking lot to the face of Mt Edith Cavell which holds Angel Glacier with it s 2 wings and a body. Well worth the hike. We did not have time to take the 45 minute Meadows hike which would have given us a more full view of the glacier

If you hike the short trail to the viewing area of Angel Glacier it's a hike that anyone can take and enjoy. If want a bit more of a challenge take the trail that goes off to the left to Edith Cavell meadows. It traverses the rock pile and forest that continues to go up to some just fantastic nature...

Hardly an Angel Glacier anymore. Very little left so not that impressive anymore. I hadn't been in 30 years. Wanted to show the family but definitely not impressive now.

After a gorgeous roadtrip up the mountain you arrive here. Put on your hiking boots because you are in for a small climb up the mountain to see the impressive glacier.

from the parking lot it takes about half an hour to get to the viewpoint. from here there are signs saying not to go down to the pond , but of course everybody does... it is best to come early before many people arrive. near the pond you can hear the booms from the glacier and take great pictures!
