Did this hike on June 3, 2020. 0/10 would recommend— recent avalanche noted. We got to the end of Agnes lake but the loosely packed snow was waist deep turning this into a skiing expedition and the risk of sliding into the lake was pretty good. Very icy. The snow was so deep to the end of the lake we couldn’t see where the supposed trail would be and the lake ended. Turned around as we didn’t want to fall into the lake. We’ll try this again in maybe September when the trail will be more clear and we don’t have to bring shovels

Worth it to get up there before sunrise!

Beautiful hike but definitely be sure to wear the right shoes! We just ended up going to the little beehive because of all the snow taking over the paths. There are some pretty deep snow covered area that are way to sink in. Our feet were soaking by the time we made it back down. Completed on June 2nd, 2020

Awesome trail! Completed on September 4, 2019! Nice gradual climb to the Tea House and after that, a quick accent up, good trail, easy to navigate. It does become a narrow trail with some scramble included. Worth the time and effort to get the views in without the crowds! Up close views of the glacier!

Fantastic, beautiful place to visit! Quintessential thing to see in Banff. I think it's a lot nicer than Lake Louise. Go during spring where the minerals in the mountain runoff reflects the light so it's a deep beautiful turquoise colour. My only issue with visiting is that it gets extremely crowded. You need to go very early (before 6am) to beat the bus tours and other tourists. Car parking is limited and overflows onto the road leading up to the lake which can be over 1km long. Otherwise, go later in the day when most people have left.

One of my favourite hikes in the Rockies! If you go on the weekend you may not be able to park due to tourists visiting the lake. Go early or during the week.

Beautiful drive!! Even in the rain! Highly recommend. So many places to stop on the way! Lots of picture ops and hikes.

Great trail and fairly consistent. I did this a couple years ago but I loved it. Spent a good amount of time at the top enjoying the views!

Beautiful trail, it is busy, but I still loved it. Done June 16, 2018

Completed last year.

Completed last year. Loved it!! Worth the view. Make sure you have legit hiking shoes. Saw people with runners and they struggled

Very crowded and parking definitely an issue but amazing view.

May 27, 2020. Proper footwear is a must! Lots of snow still ++slippery

Very nice. The restaurant at the bottom of the trail is somewhat reopened. The road is closed to motor vehicles. Bring your bicycle.

An amazing trail to get away from the crowds and get a breathtaking view of Lake Louise from up above. I am an avid hiker age 29 and made it up in 2.5 hours. Some steep terrain right at the end but nothing crazy. *I did not hike this recently, but did this hike four times last year.*

May 16th, 2020 - Trail is not groomed and the run off made this hike a little treacherous. Made it up to mirror lake without poles or spikes ect. Would not recommend this trail atm.

When there are many people, the easy trail doesn't feel easy.
