Nice trail. We did not get high enough to see the lake from the mountain or to the tea house (only 2.5 miles up) due to a bear sighting on the trail. Crampons not needed yet, but poles should be used as there are some icy/snowy/slushy spots.

Nice easy hike to beautiful falls. Getting across the river at the beginning of the trail without getting wet is tricky - best to have an extra pair of shoes to cross the river with. Quiet trail as we did not see anyone else on the hike today.

We did this hike along with the other tea house. If you had to choose between them, this one is the way to go. The hike is less busy, more scenic, and the tea house itself is nicer as well. Easy hike; crampons might help for some slippery parts (early October).

cool place! great easy hike!

We took a trail and came down from Big Beehive, neither from Lake Agnes nor Chateau Lake Louise. We had a snowstorm when arrived at the second tea shop (first one is on Lake Agnes). Sadly we had to decide to turn back without keep going up, because the trail up close to tea house have big gravels and rocks, which was slippery in snow. There was supposed to be a viewpoint and the trail gets steeper after tea shop. (Until tea shop, the trail is flatter than Lake Agnes trail and The Big Beehive trail). We didn't forget to drop by tea shop quickly. I had a hot chocolate and the BEST cinammon apple pie I ever had! Snowstorm was freezing, but made everything beautiful white world.

Gorgeous hike. A bit rocky near the end.

Loved it. It has it all. Highly recommend.

Its best to do this hike early in the morning to avoid the other tourists. There were only a few other people on the trail when we did it, so we were able to appreciate the raw beauty of the mountains and Lake Louise. Its very cold at the lookout so wear layers! But the glaciers are so worth the cold!
You must stop at the tea house on the way down for a hot chocolate to warm up.

Nice easy walk for most part - very scenic and beautiful

Great to take someone who aren't entirely sure of their fitness, with a good mix of steeper ascensions with a short flater spots so we can keep going for longer periods.
