Timely Trails

Angel Glacier and Pond by Andrew Hempstead

Angel Glacier and Pond by Andrew Hempstead

Eager to hike but limited by time? Paula Beauchamp, owner of Walks & Talks, suggests:

Remnants of glaciation can be seen on Path of the Glacier at Mt Edith Cavell. Drive the windy access road and walk the 1.6 km (1 mi) trail to iceberg filled Cavell Pond. Here you stand across from aptly named Angel Glacier. Detour 3.2 km (2 mi) to Cavell Meadows.

Park at 5th Bridge and walk Maligne Canyon upstream to 3rd Bridge to see the most interesting (and less travelled) part of the trail. Medicine Lake waters flow into the canyon through 30 km (19 mi) of subterranean channels. —RM
