 "One of the most interesting sites
in the Canadian Rockies"

Edith Cavell, Alberta
The Cavell Valley, Glacier, Glacial Pool
 


To reach the Edith Cavell access road drive south from Jasper on the Icefields Parkway (highway 93) 5 miles and take the well-marked turnoff onto highway 93A.  Cross the Astoria River and continue 28 kilometers (16 miles) on the mountain road that winds its way to the trailhead.  The road is not suitable for trailers which can be left at the parking lot near the highway.

EDITH CAVELL CAVES
CHECK OUT EDITH CAVELL CAVES

The topography is fascinating.  Crevaces, ice cave, green glacial lake, meandering mountain stream, alpine flowers, waterfalls, glacial debree and even a stunning blue-green iced glacier.  All this within a mile and a half.  Elevation gain is moderate and the trail is rated an easy walk. 

CAVELL ICE CAVES
CAVELL ICE CAVES! WOW

EDITH CAVELL ICE CAVES
Dozens of feet of snow and ice compress and in the summer the water from the melting glacier and waterfall above flow through the ice and create inviting dark caverns.

 
 WARNING!! the reality is far better than the photos!!
