This easy trail makes an excellent tour of a landscape in flux.
Glacial ice covered much of this past century, but now it is largely ice-free in the summer as the glaciers retreat.
You can view the remnants of the glaciers, clinging to the mountain slopes, and see the new vegetation now moving up the valley.
You’ll see icebergs in a blue pond, which have fallen from the Angel Glacier above.
Signs along the way explain these processes, and the photo opportunities are endless.
The Path of the Glacier trail is short and paved (but still rough for strollers and wheelchairs).
If you want a longer outing with even better views, simply extend your hike on the Cavell Meadows Trail. Source: https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/ab/jasper/activ/activ-experience/sentiers-trails/cavell
