Mount Edith Cavell and its Angel Glacier is my very favorite place to unwind, while in the Rockies. I love this area! The road leading to it is super fun to drive with its hairpin turns. Once at the Cavell parking lot, it is a short hike up a rocky trail to view the majestic mountain and its serene Angel... More

Very short uphill hike to see a glacier up close and lake with ice. We traveled all over Banff and Jasper and the mosquitoes were SO bad here bring your head net and spray. Few family's of Grizzles in the area an anything after the short trail you will need to be in a group of 4

Windy road leads to small car park at the top. We headed up track toward the foot of the clacier, but storm blew in so we eventually turned back - however we did see a marmot on the rocks by the track.

Angel Glacier & Mt. Edith Cavel glacier were both fantastic. A pretty easy hike up to the lookout spot, and great views. You can do a bit of "off roading" down to the glacier for a better view.

This is magnificent. The view from the parking lot is beautiful, but the view from the observation point is even better. It is a rather strenuous walk to get there as the path is rather steep and you are about 6000 feet or so above sea level. However if you are in reasonable health and take your time the hike... More

The short trail from the parking area at the end of the freshly paved road is only 1 km partially on asphalt. The views are stunning, and you can see the lower basin lake from there, as well as view points along the road. While we were there a very small chunk of glacier broke off and it sounded like...

We got to the parking lot at 9:00 p.m. And there was 1 car there. We got to enjoy this beautiful spot all to ourselves as we met the only other visitor within the first 300 meters of our brief hike. One thing to note is that there was a rock slide a few years ago that wiped out the... More

If you are a hiker, this area will be something you do not want to miss. Even if you are not a avid hiker, you have the opportunity to walk along a trail and get very spectacular view of Angel glacier and the area. If you are fit and want to do a hike, plan a day here!

Too bad the visitors to this area do not adhere to the signs to keep on the path and not to proceed to the lake at the bottom of the Glacier. Love the view and the falling snow when we were there.

On the quiet mountain road up to the trail we saw a black bear - by wonderful chance he came very close to the car - so close I could have reached out to touch him. It was wonderful. So the hike to see the Angel Glacier was probably enhanced by the afterglow of such good fortune. But it is... More
