My husband and I ended up doing this short hike in late August when the trail we wanted to do closed due to weather. It is a short hike with beautiful scenery even on a very rainy, snowy, cold, cloudy day. Mirror lake is a beautiful spot to take in the moment. The tea house at the top was very busy but a great spot to warm up. I would do this hike again but Cary on to the other tea houses. Note: parts of the trail are shared with horses.
Great Hike albeit rated hard if you decide on the Big Beehive Highline Trail to Lake Agnes from the Plain of the 6 Glaciers as we did. Coming that way is quite steep with a multitude of switchbacks. However when at the summit the rewards are the views. (Make sure you walk a few hundred metres to the hut/shelter for great photos). Then back down towards Lake Agnes and its Tea house for a hot chocolate!!
Lake Agnes is beautiful especially on a sunny day. Make sure to go to the little beehive on the way back down.
Great trail to spend the day enjoying and well worth taking the detour to the little beehive before looping back down to the lake.
Gorgeous setting to hike... a bit of snow made it even better. Shared a bottle of Pinot at the end of the trail on a board walk that overlooks the stream feeding the lake with my wife of 20 years. Amazing!
Moderate Trail for sure. The first third of the trail was the steepest, but once that was completed it was an easier push to the top. The Lake Agnes Tea House was the best incentive to get to the top. We ordered sandwiches and tea, delicious! This was our favourite hike so far!!
Have done this one twice and loved it twice! Beautiful trail, good uphills, several switchbacks through the forest. It is definitely not "easy" though - this rating should be changed to "moderate". Also can be quite crowded in the summer - lots of tourists. The views of Lake Louise are spectacular and Mirror Lake along the way is beautiful.
Picturesque hike but this is definitely not "Easy." The terrain is rocky and entirely uphill with many switchbacks. Not recommended for children or those who are out of shape.
Lovely trail. Spectacular views. I would rate this as moderate as it is all uphill and quite steep with a fair amount of rocks. The tea house at the top is well worth the hike. Don't miss the biscuits and jam.
Gorgeous and so fun! The teahouse is so charming and surrounded by such beautiful scenery. Absolutely loved this one.
Great family hike. Spectacular scenery. Nightmare parking!
