We skipped over the ice fields glacier tour and opted for this hike instead. It was a great choice. However, you'll need to stop at the park office in Jasper to pick up a pass and time slot that you can enter the area. It's...More

Mt Edith Cavell in in the middle of a grouping of mountains and can be seen from several roads, so it is a bit confusing. What is the most interesting is the story of Edith Cavell.

I enjoyed by 9AM-ish visit here- there weren't very many people there yet. Walked the Path of The Glacier Trail. I would have loved to have gotten quite a bit closer to the glacier chunks in the lake, but for your safety, that's not allowed...More

Due to road construction, we could not drive all the way in. However, the road up to the area was a beautiful, scenic drive. The curves that others mentioned didn't bother us at all; just a nice two-lane country road. We parked by a lake,...More

A nice drive & not hard to find. Walk from the car park is only about 800 metres and although uphill is not strenuous. Not too many people and the scenery is lovely. Can't walk on the glacier but you do get a good view...More

We took a (roughly) 90min drive from Hinton up to Mount Edith Cavell as it had been recommended to us by a guide on a previous tour. We parked just further down from the main car park where there were 3 toilet cabins located. We...More

If you want to go close to a glacier with not making much effort you should visit this place. There is a small parking space where you can easily park your car and in 10 minutes you are able to go very close to the...More

The walk to the first viewpoint of the glacier will be fine. Anything more I would suggest that you have to carry all the way as it is not suitable for a buggy

There a couple of levels. To the first point where you get a good view of the lake and glacier you could take a stroller and young child. Suggest that this should be the limit of your ambitions but worth doing Enjoy
Hi, I am planning to go here end of June with my parents, both retirees (65-ish :-)). Will the hike be doable for them? Thanks!

The upper trail to the meadow can be steep in places. The lower trail is shorter and easier.
