Toe of the Athabasca Glacier


After crossing the bridge, you’re walking on glacially smoothed limestone that was under ice in the 1950s. Follow the trail upwards through one steep section to take in views of the Athabasca Glacier. Stay on designated trails and follow signs. The ice of the Athabasca Glacier is dangerous, and hazards are often hard to spot.

All domestic animals must be kept under physical control (i.e. on a leash or in suitable confinement) and not become a nuisance at all times. Pets are not to be left unattended on campsites or in vehicles. It is illegal and extremely dangerous to leave your pet unattended in your car during warm weather. If left unattended, the animal may be impounded. Allowing your pet to chase any wild animal in the Park is an offence. Pets are not allowed in some areas. Look for notices at trailheads and info centres to find out where these restrictions are. Remember to clean up after your pet.
