A steep tight winding road that leads from Highway 93a up to Mount Edith Cavell. Popular with road riders in the summer though traffic can be heavy in the summer and there are non-existent shoulders. In the winter the road is closed to vehicle traffic and this is a multi-use route catering to XC skiers, snowshoers, and fat bikes.

Access Info

Park at the parking lot at the base of the Cavell road located on Highway 93a just South of the Marmot Basin road.

Closed Oct 16 - Feb 15 for Caribou conservation

      If you’re looking for Path of the Glaciers and Cavell Meadows trail, check out AllTrails app for details. They aren’t showing up here but begin at the parking lot seen at the end of Cavell Road.
