“Visit glacial Cavell Pond below Angel Glacier with Mount Edith Cavell towering above.”— Joan Pendleton
As the trail climbs, looking back, Cavell Lake with Franchere Peak behind it, can be seen in the distance to the north. At the 0.3 mile mark, a trail junction with Cavell Meadows Trail is passed on the left. Continuing on, a viewing area above Cavell Pond is soon reached, with great up close views of the pond, Mount Edith Cavell, and Angel Glacier. This trail ends after 0.55 miles with Cavell Pond close by below.
