Few summits in the park can match Mount Edith Cavell’s jagged beauty. A small powder blue melt water lake and beautiful Angel Glacier is easily reached by a short self guiding trail at the foot of s the mountain’s north wall.
Or take a tour with one of the links below for a full interpretive tour. The trail winds its way through the mass of boulders, rubble, sand and rock flour formed by the grinding and wearing of the rocks around the glacier tongue.
Another longer trail leads to picturesque Cavell Meadows. Neighboring Dune Wall is a great multi-pitch climbing area. Just up the road is the starting point for the Tonquin Valley trails. The road is open in the summer only.
Winter, the road turns into a ski trail. Spend a few days at Cavell Hostel to enjoy super cross-country ski touring at its maximum.
