Mt. Edith Cavell, Jasper National Park

4.8
#5 of 16 in Nature in Jasper National Park
Hike up and around Mt. Edith Cavell, a 3,300 m (10,827 ft) peak towering over river valleys. You'll have access to three different climbing routes of varying difficulties, including the famous, and particularly challenging, North Face route--deemed by experts as one of the best climbs on the continent. Other trails lead you through meadows of alpine flowers, offering views of a glacier and moraines. Remember to respect the very delicate ecosystem at this high elevation: tread on marked trails only and do not touch the vegetation. Drive along the historical Highway 93A, following the river, then the Cavell Road through 14 km (8.7 mi) of subalpine forest to reach the slopes.

Edith Cavell can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • An amazing trail! Do go on and climb to the top! After the regular trail, there's a bit of a dirt path that goes to the summit with a 360 view! Totally worth it! You can see all over!
  • Despite the Meadows trail being closed due to an aggressive bear and her cubs, the glacier hike (.8km) was incredible. You get extremely close to them and are surrounded by snow covered mountains. Stunning and memorable.
  • Spectacular views of mountains and glaciers ... worth the way in any case.
  • Best day trip in Jasper. Make sure to get your permit ahead of time at the visitor center in the town of Jasper.
  • Edith Cavell Trail is my favourite hike in Jasper National Park. The access is limited until they finish new parking lot, therefore make sure get parking permit at Jasper info center at least a day in advance.

Where to stay in Jasper National Park

Scores of hotels, lodges, and guesthouses line the western edge of Jasper's main thoroughfare, Connaught Drive, although you might struggle to find more budget-friendly options. If you're willing to pay a higher price, you can immerse yourself in nature without sacrificing luxury by staying in a resort or mountain lodge within the national park itself. Reserve your accommodations advance, as lodgings can be hard to come by at the height of the season.
