One of my all time favourite views.

Good inclines with a lot of rewards along the way.

We did this hike today and it was nothing short of amazing! If you decide to go up to sentinel pass make sure you have proper gear. It is very icy coming back down and if you slip it’s a long way down!

This trail starts off easy but definitely becomes more difficult as the elevation increases. It’s a steady climb up to the tea house. Make sure to go past the tea house to the look out, it’s worth the extra effort! We stopped at the tea house after hiking to the lookout and had a bite to eat. Expensive but you are eating halfway up a mountain. I recommend trekking poles and possibly crampons as it was slippery after the recent snowfall.

We did this as part of a Loop : parked midway up Moraine lake road at the Paradise Valley parking lot (first we dropped off bicycles at Moraine Lake). We hiked paradise valley to Sentinel Pass, then over the pass and Larch valley to Moraine lake road. Then we biked back to the car. It was about 21km of hiking and 950m elevation but it was just gorgeous! Paradise Valley in particular was breathtaking. We had our dog with us and she made it, but the climb over the pass was very strenuous and I wouldn’t have taken her had I realized how much snow/rocks we’d have to climb over - it was ALMOST too much for those 4 little legs.

Wonderful hike. A little tough up the scree path to the Pass, but not too bad and the views at Sentinel Pass are worth it. One of my favorite hikes.

Fairly challenging hike...there was about 4 inches of snow on the ground which made the trek even more difficult. View from the top is stunning.

I went September 15th and there was already snow and would recommend wearing boots and if going to the view point then bring cramp ons.Was totally worth it to go the extra to the view point

Fun hike, although I wouldn't say it was a favorite, except for the extra part after the teahouse, which was really fun! I tend to enjoy hikes that are a little more difficult though, so if you're looking for something pretty steady and with great views, this is definitely a must! We started with the first bus at 7am and it was cold and rainy. On the way up, the sky cleared a bit and we had good views of the glaciers at the top. Coming back down, it started raining and we were frozen by the end. Worth it!

Hiked on 9/15 to the overlook. About 6-8 inches of snow from the prior storms. Sun came out for a little while at the top and it was a winter wonderland! Snow on trails was packed and easily passable. However, the trail could become icy overnight if temperatures stay low, and then would be treacherous. Overall, it’s a fantastic hike!

Need a challenge, bam, here you go! As a intermediate to advance hiker from Chicago/New Hampshire, this mountain was a doozy! You are climbing straight up on nice incline for the better part of 1.5 hours. Once you arrive at the Saddleback, it is a perfect spot to take a lunch break and prepare yourself for snow and some intense cliffs that lay ahead. The next part, that section where all the rocks/snow keep going up, yup, you are going there buddy! If you are afraid of heights, this is the part where you would turn back, if not, onward you go! I had to stop about 100 feet before the summit due to altitude sickness (it happens to some people above 8k feet and I was just shy of 9k) and noticed my breath becoming shallow, dizziness, so I told the others to go without me and they got to the summit about 15 mins later (I could see them from the top). No matter what, it was a great hike, and I hope to do it again one day! We spent around 6 hours doing the hike from the parking lot start to Lake Louise finish and def took our time and taking photos and resting. Take plenty of water, food, and hiking poles. Good luck!

A great hike with wonderful views every part of the way, def a moderate hike; hard to some that don't hike often! I did the loop starting by going up to the tea house at Lake Agnes and continuing around Big Beehive and connecting to the 6 Glacier trail. The trail is moderate and should be attempted by folks in decent shape as it is a longer hike (lots of visitors not knowing the scale of this hike and I found lots of ill-equipped people on the trail, such as no water, wearing jeans, no day-packs). Plan on spending 4-5 hours on the trail if doing the loop, more if you plan to have tea at both houses. Side note, horses use the trails so beware of poop ;) If you like, you can continue for another 30-40 mins on from the 6 glaciers tea house to a closer view of the glaciers. This trail is narrow and steep in sections but wonderful, you get to hear the glaciers/snow cracking! Also, 90% of the hike is exposed to the sun and you will get hot.

Definitely not a hike, rather a walk to a view point of Morraine Lake. Great views from the top of the lake and surrounding mountains (though we went today 9/13 and there was heavy snow and limited visibility so the view was very obstructed). Parking is extremely limited and unless you get there early will need to park elsewhere and take a shuttle (for a fee I believe) or be part of a tour group. The one huge drawback (other than lack of parking) is the large number of tour groups that show up and inundate the trail and view points. To me really takes away from the beauty of the place when are trying to enjoy it and people are jostling to get past you to take their millions of selfies. It seems that many would rather take pictures of themselves there then taking in the beauty of it all.

Good, but too full

Pretty walk through the woods. A tough scramble at the end to get close to the lake. The lake itself was nothing special. Especially after just seeing Moraine Lake!

The view from the top is of course spectacular, but this is not a hike. Just a short climb up a series of rock staircases.

This trail is well-trafficked and it’s clear why. The views at the top of the pass are absolutely spectacular! Be prepared for changing weather conditions on the way up, as it was sunny when we started, started snowing lightly midway up, and was snowing a bit harder up at the pass. Because of the heavy foot traffic, the trail is easy to follow. The elevation increases quickly at the start and at the end on the switchbacks up to the pass, but the middle of the trail is easy to manage. Overall, incredibly beautiful and well worth the effort!

Excellent hike with excellent company. The little tea house at the top is quiet rewarding. I saw my first avalanche standing at the overlook past the tea house. The hike is long, but is quite nice.

The most beautiful hike of my life from start to finish. Started by doing the short flat lakeside trail around the lake, then up and up all the man switchbacks. It’s a challenging hike for the grade, and takes about an hour to an hour and a half if you’re young and in shape, but well worth your efforts. The view at the top is a perfect scene with the Ten Mountains peaks being a feast for the eyes! I recommend a later hike as the trail clears out and when you get to the bottom the light causes a great reflection of the surrounding mountains on the lake.

The extra hike past the tea house is difficult, but one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen! It took me an extra hour including the time I spent at the end seated, listening to the glaciers crack! Definitely worth the extra sweat!!

when I arrived the tea house I realized there was no view from this level.
Most of the ascent to the tea house was in the woods and there was a little view all the way.
The only view is from the little beehive that was 1km ascend.

The views are gorgeous. We saw some goats on the trail as well.

This hike is really crowded but the views are great and the tea house is lovely. You can help out the tea house by bringing down trash bags to help them out.

Hiked to Larch Valley. The view of Ten Peaks is well worth the effort. You won't get much solitude because of heavy trail use. Definitely a challenging trail because of the steep grade.

So epic!
