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.

One of the best views I've ever seen, couldn't stop looking at the glaciers and lake. Permit is required from Jasper info centre

Great views of fast disappearing glaciers. It's necessary to obtain a permit at National Park information center in Jasper to access parking area up to three days before you hike.

Beautiful hike. The views from the top are well worth it. However, we took our dog based on this app stating that dogs were permitted...they are not.

Second time for the Meadows hike having done it about 5 years ago and enjoyed it just as much. Steady up with beautiful views the whole way. Didn't do the final ridge.

There was an avalanche at the lake a few years ago which changed the approach from the parking lot and it wasn't permitted to go right down to the lake this time. They are issuing a limited number of passes each day for three different time slots so be sure to pick one up so you don't get turned away at the gate.

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.

If you like hikes my to view spectacular glaciers, this hike is for you. Can be crowded. Ran across a marmot! Cool! Mt Edith Clavel is magnificent
