“WONDEROUS WALK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

We walked the glacier trail and were astounded at the sights...so close to the glacier and the trickle of the water run off. Chunks of glacier in a pool at the bottom that you could touch. Fantastic picture opportunities. The drive up is breathtaking and chance to see Mama and cub at side of road.

“Glacier Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Fortunate to visit just before the closure. Took the easier trail to the Glacier and returned back the same way. The Glacier pond with ice bergs is serene, unique, and breathtakingly beautiful.

“Edith Cavell Road update”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

The lovely, winding road to Edith Cavell will be closed for the foreseeable future due to the debris clean-up efforts. Don't plan on seeing anything here until at least 2013. I am in Jasper now and really wish it was open (I have been numerous times and it's a favorite). Wildflowers, glaciers, lakes and the awesomeness of nature.

“Breathtaking Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I was in Banff and Jasper during the first two weeks of August and did many of the hiking trails.The most vivid and memorable trail was at Mt. Edith Cavell. You can go on the beginning trails which leads you to a beautiful pool of melted glacier ice. You can go back to the parking lot or continue to the more difficult hiking trails. It was worth the hike to continue to the top. Once at the top you had to walk on some trails covered with snow. The view was spectacular and breathtaking!

“Great mountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Nice mountain to hike around and a nice little fishing below. The most impressive mountain you see from Jasper.
