"When Brussels fell to the German army during World War I, a British nurse in charge of a local nursing school refused to leave her post. Edith Cavell cared for the wounded of the both sides and helped over 200 allied soldiers escape. She was arrested on charges of espionage and executed by a firing squad on October 12, 1915.

Edith Louisa Cavell became known as the "martyr nurse". As a tribute to her courage, Canada gave her name to the grandest mountain in the Athabasca Valley." - information board at the beginning of the trail.

The trail leads through Cavell Meadows to a small glacier lake. It is easy to walk, 3.8 kilometers one way, rising 370 meters.
