Angel Glacier, Jasper National Park

4.5
#7 of 15 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.

  • We found a Angel!!! Great!!!
  • I love this place.
  • really looks like an angel!
  • Could unfortunately not see him, because the parking lot was locked and no one was allowed to drive up. An information on the highway would have been nice!
