“another great hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

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....

“Go early or late, but don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

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. A precious spot.

“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.
