Angel Glacier, Jasper National Park

4.6
#7 of 14 in Trails in Jasper National Park
The Angel Glacier flows down the north face of Mount Edith Cavell in Jasper National Park, Canada. It is named as such because it has the appearance of an angel with out-swept wings. It was much larger when it was named in the 19th-century, but as with most glaciers worldwide, it is melting rapidly. It is not expected to maintain its distinctive appearance for much longer, and will eventually disappear from the face of Mount Edith Cavell.
The glacier is visible from the Cavell Meadows hiking trail.

  • Fantastic views. Breath taking. Wish we'd got there earlier to do the hike as we got there at dusk. Need a good camera to give the view justice!  more »
  • The pathway up from the new parking area has a great viewing platform to see the glacier as well as the cavell glacier at the waters edge  more »
