There are two trails that leave from the Mt. Edith Cavell parking lot. The first is a simple loop called The Path of the Glacier, a short walk along an easy trail that takes you to a small lake at the foot of the Cavell Glacier.

Great hike up to get great views of Lake and glacier. The extended hike towards the summit was challenging, stopped about 400 feet, elevation wise, from the ridge top. The views from there were good, not spectacular, compared to the shorter overlook of Lake. Fortunately, very cool day, otherwise would have been very brutal if temperature had been higher. The limiting factor of permitting fewer folks on this trail was a plus, not crowded, made for an enjoyable hike with friends.

Did this trail 2x already. my son was just a baby when we first hiked the Edith Cavelle Meadows Trail and the 2nd time was when he was 6 years old. There is something for everyone on this hike. We always love this place, from the top you have an incredible view of the glacier, lake and surrounding mountains. the boys enjoyed the sound of glacier crackling - they say "oh boy, little avalanches is happening" and the enjoy the Cavell pond too.
