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 because if a big enough ice chunk fell, it could displace enough water in the...

We wanted to do the whole trail, glaciers and meadows and all, but cut it short due to thunder storm warning. The trail is rocky so it might be easy to twist your ankles when it's wet. The shorter trail to the main outlook was short, but was uphill all the way, so take your time to breathe in between... 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, and there are trails around here. The lake was a beautiful color, and a tranquil...

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 of it & it is definitely worth going to see.

Mount Edith Cavell is located in Jasper National Park, and this impressive peak is located entirely within Alberta. The parkway is a twisting, turning 14 kilometre route through sub-alpine forests to the slopes of Mt. Edith Cavell. The hairpin turns add to the fun. You can expect to see lots of people here in the summer. There are several hike... 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 noticed the main pathway that went up to the left, and saw it was really... 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 glacier. It´s suitable for anyone.

I became very emotional when visiting this mountain. I grew up in a village only a couple of miles from where Edith Cavell was born but, until I reached Jasper, I had no idea that Canada had named this fantastic mountain after our Norfolk heroine who was shot by the Germans in 1915 for helping British soldiers to escape. As... More
