Canada really knows how to nature! This is a pretty easily accessible glacier to get up close to. I reccommed going outside of regular tourist hours or you will miss out on the peace and serenity such a place has to offer.

My wife does most of the research on our trips and I like to be surprised with what she suggests. Visiting Angel Glacier was one of our highlights in the Canadian Rockies! The view of Angel Glacier and Cavell Lake is awe inspiring! We also had several hours to further enjoy the area by hiking and enjoying other views of... More

It takes a while to walk to the viewpoint but its well worth it. I really enjoyed the view of the glacier which really does have an angel shape. Good information panels are available at the viewpoint.

The glacier and the lake below are spectacular sights. To get the best views, you will need to follow the trail, mostly uphill. It's not a hard walk, but you are walking up hill. The walk is well worth the view.

Best experience of the trip. Yes it is a drive to get there, but so totally worth it to get the Glacier experience. I could see glacier, a valley newly foresting from receding glacier, waterfalls, ponds. THE place to go

We had a bad weather (rain) but decided to see it and we are so glad we did it. It is not an 45 minutes walk as they say it is, but more like a 15 minutes and it is amazing!

Angel Glacier is simply incredible,a must see whilst in Jasper. About a 20/30 minute drive from Jasper . We did the short hike to the first viewpoint..amazing view ,but then decided to hike to Edith Cavell Meadows(an easy to moderate 1hr hike)..unbelievably beautiful as the wildflowers we're in bloom. Incredible views no matter which way you look. Don't hike down... More

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.
