CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Mount Edith Cavell, AB, CAN

Ride 19 kilometers gaining 696 meters at 3.4% average grade.

Maligne Range of the Canadian Rockies.

Mount Edith Cavell.

Angel Glacier is visible on the north face of the peak

This climb is not called Mount Edith Cavell for nothing!  For most of this southerly climb, you are heading towards and in site of the mighty Mount Edith Cavell in Alberta’s incomparable Jasper National Park.  As the photos on this page might suggest, Mount Edith Cavell is the most prominent peak located entirely within Alberta.

We ride towards and in sight of the north face of Mount Edith Cavell much of the climb.

The climb begins at the intersection of Routes 93 and 93A in sight of the Athabasca River . . .

. . . and ends at Mount Edith Cavell.

The beautiful Jasper National Park.

Your bucket list should include hiking and cycling in Jasper National Park, which is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies and one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites.  This huge park was established in 1907, consists of 2,345,130 acres, and averages over 2,000,000 visitors per year (2.45m in 2019).  Visitors to the park can enjoy the beauty of glaciers, lakes, and mountains (like the beautiful and mighty Mt. Edith Cavell).  One major draw to the park is Icefields Parkway, which takes you on the 230 km (143 mile) stretch of road between Jasper and the iconic aqua waters of Lake Louise.  If you’re looking for wildlife, there’s no shortage in Jasper NP -- you can expect to see bighorn sheep, elk, moose, and the lucky visitor who keeps an eye out might even spot a coyote or a bear.

Thank you Lynn Sugden, Alberta, CAN!
