eine super Tour mit immer wieder tollen Ausblicken

10/10 views. Lots of steps. Sooo many people at the top, but you will get why, as the view is magnificent. scramble down some rocks to get picks without 100 million people in them. the color of the lake is un like anything. Watch out for thieving chipmunks.

Not a long hike, but fairly steep. It's worth going up to the Little Beehive or Big Beehive from Lake Agnes. Less chance of running into a bear with all the people on the trail :)
Parking at Lake Louise however, is a whole other story! Went on a Thursday, got there at 10am and still had to go back to the shuttles and wait 45 min to get on one.... The entire day we had to be mindful of the time so we don't miss the shuttle back... Very dissapointing that they can't build more parking.

i give it 5 stars because that trail is so cool

Awesome hike, very worth the views.

Did this in winter and it was really beautiful!! Snow everywhere, frozen waterfall at the other end of the lake that you can actually go stand on if you're a bit adventurous. We took a day off from skiing to do this and it was a great day!

Trail is dry and in good condition. Very nice view at top. It took us 5.5 hours to finish it. Just watch your steps close to mountain top, nothing difficult for the rest of the hike.

Great Hike. And tremendous views. Highly recommend.

Very beautiful and different views/scenery throughout. Worth going the extra 1.3 km past the teahouse to the lookout point.

Incredible hike, it has everything from peak-a-boo views of Moraine Lake through the forest, beautiful 360 views of 10-peaks range in Larch Valley and breathtaking mountain views at the top, snow melt lakes and streams - it has it all. The switchbacks up to Larch Valley are a killer but keep going past the tree line and the views are well worth it - even if you don’t make it up to the top of the pass the meadow is incredible . The final switchbacks up to Sentinel Pass weren’t too bad although it is quite steep along the side and may prove a good challenge if heights make you nervous. Trail was very well maintained though and as long as you have good hiking shoes and take your time you will have no problems. Favorite hike in Banff thus far and spending a day near Moraine Lake is a must do!

Scenery changes constantly. Very rewarding hike that gives you a good feel for the Lake Louise area all in one hike.

A very busy but short easy hike up stone stairs to the top. In order to get pictures with no one in them you will have to climb over the stone wall and down a few of the rocks. Once you pick a good spot you won’t have any worries about getting people or trees in your picture / view.

The trail was easy. But the best part was the mesmerizing views - the lake water with the mountains in the backdrop.

A beautiful trail which provides ample spots to take pictures and enjoy the beauty of the lake.

I went on June 14th at around noon. Bit of overcast and sprinkling rain, but the water was still unbelievably blue. Went on this short hike with my 5 month old, 11, 7 and 5 year olds. Not very busy till after 2pm.

Terrific hike. We got there at 7am to beat the crowds, and only passed and handful of folks on the trail. Mostly all an ascending trail via long switchbacks, with great views of Lake Louise through the tree line. Gets your heart beating, and makes you look forward to breakfast at the tea house. Only downside was the biting bugs, but hey, it’s summer in the Canadian woods.

very easy and so beautiful!!!!! I'll go there often for short walk. Nice trail to do in rainy day.


Once you get out of the crowds of lake Louise the ascend is breathtaking. After the tea house, the crowds begin to shrink and the hike/views can fully be enjoyed.

Great hike to a beautiful overlook. Yes, a little buggy. If adventurous, continue past the overlook on the old “not maintained” trail. It will follow switchbacks down the lake level, then back to the start. It is beautiful and very few folks with do it. We hiked next to the incredible Lake Louise with no others!

If you do a hike from Lake Louise to Big Beehive, you can continue your hike to the Plains of six Glaciers to enjoy the amazing view of the Rockies!
Definitely check out the tea house, which is almost 2 km before the actual glaciers! DON'T FORGET TO HAVE CASH WITH YOU cause there's no electricity there and the chocolate cake is amazing (So you don't want to miss it :P).
Be prepared, don't go with running shoes, have nice hiking shoes with good grips on them (not necessarily ankle ones).

Beautiful place

Stunner and a burner. Well worth it - amazing views!

One of the most beautiful hikes I have been on in recent years

Beautiful trail, lots of spots to get a great pic. Also a nice trailhead to many other hikes.

Rewarding hike. Absolutely beautiful vistas.

Amazing views !! the weather was changing constantly, rainy, sunny, overcast, that made the hike even more wonderful. Must do!

Very busy trail and fairly steep the entire way. I am out of shape but was able to get to the lake in 1h 15m and took me 1h to get down. If you plan on going to the teahouse go very early to be there when it opens up.

Unreal hike. Highly recommend starting with the Lake Agnes route, circling the lake, hiking up the Devil’s Thumb, and dropping into the Plain from there. It’s a 5-6 hour, 12 mike effort but the views are spectacular.
