Awesome hike! The view is absolutely breathtaking and the trail is decently challenging. We chose to continue on after the teahouse toward the lookout which was definitely worth it. The only real downside is how busy it is, but once you leave the trail around the lake, the crowds lessen.
It's beautiful at this time of the season. Will need spikes on the shoes and but depth of snow is increasing daily.
You will keep on stopping every few meters to take pictures. Very few hikers on the way when reaching the Tea house and above.
Must for those who are into taking scenery pictures.
One of best trails I've done so far this year. I'm probably a little biased on this one just because I love to mountain bike and this trail is no exception in fact. I would say it was made for mountain biking in particular. I mean there are some Sandy spots Which kind of suck but overall excellent trail.
I found out about this trail on AllTrails. It says that the trail is hard and is listed next to the centennial ridge trail in Algonquin park and sections of Bruce trail near to tobermory. I'm very well familiar with those trails as I've walked them many times. I was surprised to find there is another "hard" trail like those that are close to Toronto, so I drove all the way and basically wasted the entire day on the trail that is flat. This trail is perfect for dog walking, cross country skiing or mountain biking. But this is not a hiker's trail. There are way more rugged trails near Toronto than this. This trail is a joke. Also for a hiker it's very boring. It needs to be reclassified as easy.
Excellent Hike. Starts at Lake Louise shoreline and finishes at the Tea house. We opted to push on to the Glaciers lookout and we were glad we did. Beautiful awe inspiring views. We even saw an avalanche on Mt Lefroy...bonus. On the way back we did the Big Beehive Highline Trail to Lake Agnes and then back down to Lake Louise. Due to this add-ons we would rate this as moderate (Plain of 6 Glaciers Hike) to hard (Big Beehive Highline Trail) due to the steepness of the Hike on the latter. However the views from the top is well worth the effort especially if you do go to the hut/shelter at the summit. Both Tea houses are great for refreshments and a great place to rest and refresh.
Emerald Lake is a very scenic and beautiful place. We recommend the 5.6km loop trail (easy trail although uneven at times) as there are some really nice spots for viewing the lake at different angles. We also did the Emerald Basin trail which we would rate as moderate but we were slightly disappointed with it. On a positive note, the amphitheatre at the end of the trail offers some nice photo opportunities.
