You can view Crowfoot Glacier from a pullout off of the Icefields Parkway. We were on a tour bus that pulled over and let everyone out to take some pictures. It is a large glacier and from the parking lot you can get some pretty good pictures. Well worth visiting, while the glaciers still exist.

The Crowfoot Glacier will most likely be your first stop on the incredible Icefield Parkway if you are starting from Lake Louise, there is a roadside pull in with spaces for RVs where you can view the magnificent Glacier.

You can get a great view of this glacier from the Icefields Parkway. There is a stop here which is well worth taking to fully appreciate the glacier. Yes, I can certainly see how it got its name Crowfoot, which makes it even more fun.

This looks just like a three-pronged crows foot. There are several viewpoints from the Icefields Parkway and pull offs to admire this glacier.

We briefly stopped by the glacier site on our way to Jasper from banff. You can see the glacier really well from the roadside stop. The scenery is beautiful. We also stopped at nearby bow lake.

We did a quick stop at this glacier on our way to Jasper. We just viewed it from the road side lookout. It’s a great glacier. It got its name because it looked like a crows foot until one of the three toes broke off.

You can see this from a viewpoint or stop at Bow Lake. Nice little stop to walk around or splash round in the shallow end of the lake

This is a special and spectacular place, in August on a nice day it is well worth keeping an eye out for and best seen from the highway when driving south

Easy to see if you stop at the beautiful Bow Lake on the Icefields Parkway. An impressive sight with the ice 'flowing' down from the snow capped peak.

Just like most people already reviewed, this one is a very easy location as it's by the road side but it's also easily missed and I meant that literally because not only one have to pay attention to the shape of the glacier that looks like a crow foot...assuming the onlooker know what a crow's foot in his/her mind...and also one of the "finger" of the crow's foot is gone already due to the melting of the ice during our visit there... nevertheless it's an interesting shape and a good reminder of how beautiful and fragile our environment we're living in like. Perhaps it's also a good place to educate the younger ones of such awareness and make them search of the missing finger...
