“Awesome views”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We hiked to the lake and glacier. The hike is not strenuous and worth the walk. Use caution walking down by the lake.

“Great view”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Short hike to see an unique glacier. Path is easy to follow and wide enough to allow people to pass one another.

Absolutely beautiful area and worth visiting if you get the chance. There is great hiking and the view alone is worth the drive up there.

“Super attraction : Cavell glacier walk”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

We went to the Cavell glacier in August 2012. The weather was first cloudy but with a lot of sunny spells. The road to the walk is 18 km with some switchbacks. The trail starts at the end of the road. The big parking lot was full at noon.so better plan a morning start. Already at the start you'll have a view to the great scenery of the glaciers hanging on mt Edith Cavell. The rocky trail of 30 minutes leads to the best place of Jasper np !!! At the right the beautiful Angel glacier above the stuning coulours of the Cavell glacier and the Cavell pond. At the left the ghost glacier,fallen only a week after our visite. You also can walk to to higher viewpoints. Don't miss this great wonder of nature! Time : 2 hours including a higher viewpoint - level : easy

“A hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We visited the Cavell last June on the advice of some locals. The drive up is STEEP and includes a number of super-tight switchbacks. This can make the drive down an interesting, if not scary adventure as well. Driving down in a lower gear made the trip to the bottom not so hair-raising for us. Once at the top, the trail to the glacier is bare, but you get some spectacular views of the mountainside. It feels like you are on top of the world up there!
