It is an AWESOME place. It had exceeded all our expectations. You can go so close of the glacier, it is spectacular. We decided not to go on the Columbia glacier with Icefield centre because we were not sure that it was a good value for money. After having been on Mt Edith, we didn't regret our choice. This place should be in the top 5 places to be visited.

Over thanksgiving I went out to Jasper to visit my father. We had been to Jasper before but never stopped at the base of Mount Edith Cavell where the Angel Glacier flows down to glacier pool. From the parking lot it doesn't seem like much, but follow the trail down to the pool...it really is worth it. No camera can come close to capturing how tiny you feel next to the giants around you. Enjoy!

This is a great hike. You can either do the shorter route just to the glacier and sit near the glacier and listen to the ice crack, or you can hike up through the meadows and see the spectacular display of flowers when they are in bloom. We were here in September and the weather was spectacular although most of the flowers were already done blooming.

Visiting Mt Edith Cavell and the glaciers far surpassed my expectations. We arrived early (8 am) and were the only people there. I think the solitude really enhanced the experience of viewing the glaciers. It was cold, but the silence allowed us to listen to the cracking of ice. We started with the Glacier trail, with views of the nearby Angel Glacier. We really enjoyed seeing the Edith Cavell glacier, lake, and icebergs. Very, very cool. We then did the hike to the Edith Cavell Meadows. If you don't have enough time for the entire loop, taking the less steep right side to the first two overlooks gives the most bang for the buck (and some amazing views of the glaciers). We continued the loop, which was somewhat treacherous with ice and snow on the path. Very beautiful panoramic views at the top. We did hear the roar of part of the glacier breaking off. This was a very memorable and beautiful hike.

Great trail, but bring bug repellant. Take the trail to head towards the Cavelle Meadows. You’ll have to take the windy road all the way to get to the trail head. We walked 0.8+0.3+1.5+0.8 km to get to the Meadows which were atop a hill and were beautiful! We encountered lots of marmots along the way, so if you missed them at the Whistler’s Mountain, you’re sure to see them hiding among the rocks on your trail to the Meadows! You’ll get a great view of the Angel Glacier too, and will see parts of the ice floating in a lake next to the trail. Beware of the bugs. Waving them off is pretty exhausting!
