Nice trail and joyful for the beginners. We couldn't reach the lake by following the "Trail" sign, for still snow covering at last 1.5 km. But got over there following the yellow diamond ski sign, took by the cross country skiing route.
Gorgeous wildflowers made the day beautiful.

Hiked this this weekend. There is still snow up top. I would rate this a hard hike up to the ridge with the snow and slippery mud. Make sure to have good hiking shoes. It was snowing when I got to the top, so was not able to see everything. This is still a fantastic hike with gorgeous views.

Hike out to Taylor Lake was a steady climb on a well trodden path through the trees the whole way. Beautiful once at the lake, a little boggy right at the lake. Continuing on to O’Brien lake was my favourite part. Still a lot of snow on the trail so had a little trail finding and boggy most of the way. Bridge across the river is broken but still pass able if you have long legs, I ended up in the river! If you have shorter legs follow the river slightly more upstream where it narrows and is passable.

Went early in the morning in June before the crowds. Pretty easy 2mile circle and plenty of photospots on the way to the lakes. Good trail for babies, dogs, and elderly and not particularly challenging. Some spots may get your shoes soaked.

Great Hike

Très belle trail facile
Le consoltion lake avec les montagnes tout autour donne une vue splendide
Prend environ 1h30 roadtrip

Belle vue sur le lake louise
On passe devant le miroir lake
ensuite on arrive au lake agnes

La trail est bien, cependant pour les débutants cela peut etre legerement difficile puisque la trail monte continuellement.

Fantastic hike! Fairly steep towards the end but the view is entirely worth it. The trail could be marked better so allow yourself extra time to find it.

The view is spectacular at the top.

Great hike, very challenging to novice hikers. The trail is little hidden, we ended up wondering off with another group which resulted in a much longer scramble at the end lol. amazing view at the top, legs were nice and tender afterwards.

Did this hike over the weekend in Three days... first day clocked some miles. Beautiful views most of the way!! The trail was relatively easy just long. There are several opportunities for one who would like to spend more time out there. You could hike up to Michaëlle lakes through waterfalls creek or hike in through cataract creek, many different options! I did however notice a fair amount of garbage on the trails though

Rewarding/scenic/challenging! Would do it again!
Hiked in: 18.8KM 1 day. Total in/out: 37.6KM
Elevation gain: 1539M
Total moving time: 13HRS

This a great trail worth doing. We started at Lake Louise around 8:30am to get a good parking spot. We then hiked the plain of six glaciers trail up to the tea house. It was lovely. There is still snow on parts of it so make sure to bring good waterproof hiking shoes. We then took the highline trail to the Lake Agnes tea house because beehive still has poor conditions. Lake Agnes is definitely more crowded. Overall this trail is definitely worth doing.

It was a really easy hike and the lakes were gorgeous!

Killer day. Counterclockwise is easier (go right and up at the first trail map). Go down along the lake and up for the harder longer route - watch out for mtn bikers and feel the burn. Whole loop took us 5 hours with a stop at top.

Nice day hike to do early season. Not a ton of views on the way up/down but beautiful once on top.
Expect switch backs on the way up through a forest area. But once you're out, you basically reached the lookout.

Great trail! A bit muddy to start but clears up right away. I’d suggest taking the route along the lake through to Jewell Pass instead of hopping right onto Prairie View Trail if you want more of a gradual incline. You’ll do your first 9kms and get up to the altitude slowly if you take that way rather than going right on Prairie View. Either way would be great, though! Would definitely do again.

Very easy, good bang for your buck

Beautiful easy day hike, with very little elevation gain once you get to Elbow lake.

Great family trail. even our 3 year loves it!!!

June 17, 2018 - left the parking lot at 6:20am to an open trail and clear skies. The beginning is a good set of switchbacks up to the valley where is opens up to amazing views. The trail is completely free of snow until the approach of Sentinel on the east side of the ridge above the lake. We turned back before the switchbacks on the north due to the snow. Amazing hike and panoramic views. Do it early and have the valley to yourself.

Amazing views from the top lookout and a great hike.

Great views you really have to stop occasionally and look around to check out the tiny hikers on the trail above and below. Then you turn the corner up to the tea house and lose sight of blue-tiful lake Louise and the red canoes. There was still some snow on the trail.

What an amazing trail with rewarding beautiful views after only a short period of hiking! The trail is muddy and snowy and slippery in a few sections still, and the last kilometre is all snow covered, at times knee deep. The lake remains frozen, but it was all still breathtaking!

Awesome hike with amazing views. Nicely marked trails and not too difficult. Highly recommend. Great for kids as well.

I have done this trail a few times, mainly to complete the Triple Crown and the Fantastic Four (which Pearls Cafe no longer does). Not on of my personal favorites compared to the other hikes for the Triple Crown but still gorgeous scenery.

Gorgeous hike. Great for beginners and not so athletic people.

une fois rendu au sommet, quel vue.. a faire absolument!

vraiment beau et pas trop difficile. le salon de thé vous offre un petit lunch assez intéressant!
