“My favorite spot in Jasper National Park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

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!

“A nice drive to one of the most beautiful mountains in the Canadian Rockies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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 from the parking lot at the top that gives you further views of Angel glacier and the lake that is formed from the runoff. It is very neat though the trail is uphill all the way. The history of Edith Cavell is interesting and is provided on the plaques.

“A beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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.

“Cool experience! Literally!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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!

“Wonderful drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

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.
