Cavell Lake in Mt. Edith Cavell is one of the two hiking trailheads to the world famous Tonquin Valley in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. It’s located next to the Cavell Hostel, about 11km up the Cavell Road. See map below for driving direction. Cavell Lake is not the same as Cavell Pond, which is located at the base of Mt. Edith Cavell where Angel Glacier and Cavell Glacier slide into.

Cavell Lake provides scenic views of the surrounding mountain peaks, including Mt. Edith Cavell, Sorrow Peak, and Franchere Peak. It’s a paradise for photographers. The tranquil lake surface yields a clear reflection of Mt. Edith Cavell in the summer. In October, the lake starts to freeze. It can be a great outdoor venue for wedding photography, engagement photos, portrait shots, and family group pictures.
