This is definitely a worthwhile short hike. The small glacial lake with chunks of ice floating around at the foot of the glacier, surrounded by these huge mountain is an amazing sight. Get there early during the busy season.

The Canadian Rockies offer spectacular opportunities for daily hikes. At the top of the list there are a few selected: Lake O'Hara to Opabin Prospect lookout; Lake Louise to Six Glaciers teahouse and Beehive; and Mt. Edith Cavell to the 360 degrees summit. Then in fall you have to add Larch Valley around Moraine Lake. This hike is only about 9.5 Km round trip, with a steep 300 meters ascend at the very end. With my family of 4 we first visited the spectacular Cavell Pond, stay there for a long time, and then continued to the Cavell Meadows. There is a point where the trail ends, but you don't have a 360 view. DON'T STOP THERE, unless you are truly afraid of a steep, slippery at times ascend. Go on to the top of the rock pile, gaining another 300 meters of elevation to 2,583msnm. Then at the top, you will have not only Mt. Edith Cavell, its pond and the view to the Meadows and Jasper (north), but also a breathtaking open view to the Athabasca valley river (South), and an impressive view to the East, where you can see some of the peaks of the Queen Elizabeth Ranges. Tip: to see the Pond in all of its beauty during summer, visit the Pond before 1pm. After that hour the Pond starts to move to the shade of Mt. Edith Cavell. 10/10 for the Pond, 10/10 for the Meadows (incredibly beautiful), 10/10 for the views.

A lovely hike, either very short (30 minutes) to see the Angel Glacier or much longer but worth it (2.5 hours) to get up the alpine meadows and have a spectacular view.

Fun drive to the base of this mountain, some great curves. Saw the glacier melt start a stream which turned into a rushing river.

Get an up close look at a glacier before they are gone. We even heard a calving. The hike is uphill and not for the weak, but completely worth the effort.

If you are "weekend hikers," like us, be sure to have your trekking poles with you on this hike over rocks and through mud and even snow when we were there. But the trail is totally worth it.

Traveled with my elderly parents. Dad is in wheelchair, but has some mobility issues. Astounding views and so incredible special to share such amazing views that are accessible even if you are unable to hike to get them....

A fantastic walk to see 2 glaciers and a frozen lake. The road to get there is very good despite the warnings. Stunning views of mountains and glaciers. Well worthbb my doing and the highlight of our time in Jospeh National Park. Go early bc ass as quieter

Amazing drive to the trailhead for Edith Cavell pond. Easy 60 minute roundup hike to pond to see close up glacier and icebergs. Must do :)

OK so I know all sources say ‘moderate hike’ but for the unfit or those not specifically hiking fit (I’m a swimmer) this is more like a difficult hike. It is exceptionally beautiful so definitely worth it but make sure your shoes have excellent grip for the loose gravel on the way down, good socks to prevent blisters and definitely pack plenty of snacks and water. There are stunning views for the entire hike. Everything from the Glacier, cute little marmots, chipmunks, gofers and typically bears (which we did not encounter), meadows, fairy-glen type forest, small meadows and mountain top views. I really would encourage everyone to take their own garbage bags for any trash from your snacks as the increasing amount of tissues etc. left lying around really made me very sad. As explorers we should do everything we can to preserve this extreme beauty.
