Good and easy for Two nice hours after work :)

Seriously icey on 5th December. Crampons a must. Great view from the top.

Beautiful trail but definitely not for beginners in this season, get spikes and snow gear since it's already covered by snow.

Did the hike joffre lake 25 years ago for 5 years in a row. Was one of my favorite. No one on the trail. Now did it on August long weekend this year. Wow so busy. But still so beautiful.

One of my favourite hikes in Vancouver. Still accessible as of the 2nd December.

First 1.7km is a slog with very steep sections (about 550m elevation). This also makes for a tricky, technical descent which probably deserves its hard rating.

Second half is a nice amble with slight incline. Views are out of this world.

Great quick hike but way too busy.

Loved this hike. It was well marked and the scenery is stunning the farther up you go. Will also recommend the Little Bee Hive as well. Path can be done with hikers but recommend crampons and poles pending which route you take down from Lake Agnes.

great Trail for a half day hike with some good conditioning and what A View From The Top. Outstanding restaurant and bar to relax in when you're done. Perfect playground in Vancouver's backyard

I’ve done it a good number of times. The best workout ever if you’re up to the challenge.

Nice easy walk

It’s a great hike. Steep climb all the way up. Always busy though. Nice to relax at the tea house. Lake Agnes is beautiful, with stunning views.

Beautiful trail, I think it is for beginners too but just when don’t have snow. I went today and it is very slippery, spikes are highly recommended. Bring extra clothes just in case if you fall and get wet. Use gloves, scarf, hood, and nice and warm clothes. We already started the fall/winter season so you will need it because is very cold there.

Awesome! Nice late fall (with snow) trail with some slippery sections.

Hiked this one in the snow before dawn to try and watch the sunrise. Most of the view was obstructed by the trees, but there was a spot along a switchback where you could see the sky changing to bright pink just beyond the mountains. If you are staying in Lake Louise, this was a decent option for seeing the sunrise by the lake. We only went up to Mirror Lake because of the avalanche warnings up to Lake Agnes. The snow was packed down and the hike was easy with ice cleats, but they were likely unnecessary.

A challenging adventurous hike for kids and families, easy but not boring for the more seasoned hiker. It’s definitely a far cry in technical difficulty from your local park trails, substantially harder.

So much fun and perfect for a nice hike and a few really good pics! Saw people doing live art and it was really a chill place....spent a lot of time admiring the art the bridge and the water was amazing! A must do! ❤️

Great hike and view

Great trail, hiked on 11/18. Packed snow most of the way, would recommend crampons. Used poles, but not necessary. Worth making the trek up to the tea house (closed) for a great view and serenity. Would recommend snowshoes if you were to continue on to little beehive lookout.

Amazing views at the top. Worth the pain getting up there. Your legs will burn.

This is a beautiful hike any time of year. While the tea house is closed, it’s still worth the trek, which is a steady and moderately steal climb. The views are breathtaking.

beautiful

Beautiful.

Beautiful three lakes, and easy hike. Good for a beginner too. Parking was full.

Very easy hike with beautiful views of the mountains, glaciers, and the Fairmont. I hoped in late November so we stopped at the end because of avalanche warnings, but would have continued to go on to the Plain of Six Glaciers trail if we had the training or the if the conditions were better. lots of people at the lakefront, but it thinned out for us as we walked away from the hotel.

Beautiful Hike! It is a relatively short hike however it is quite the incline the majority of the way and if you are used to living at sea level you might find breathing a little more difficult! All in all a great experience.

Hiked on Nov 17 - bright beautiful day in the forecast and cold. Trails are compact snow and ice in sections now: RUNNERS NOT APPROPRIATE. Allow for extra time due to slippery sections. Arrived at 945am, parking easy. Try to time it so that you are at the third lake just after noon bc before that the sun is still behind the mountain and it's shady. Most of the trail will be in the shade so dress appropriately. Highly recommend cramp-ons at this point. Beautiful way to spend the morning if you're prepared. Left at 1:30 and lot was full.

Hiked to First Lake. Trail was dangerously slippery on the approach to the lake due to icey rocks and mud. We had 3 kids with us, so we spent some time at first lake and the headed back to the car. great weather though!

Great workout! The first quarter is the hardest to me.

Beautiful view and lots of space at the top make the end of this climb so very worth it. Tough switch backs at the beginning and evens out after 20 minute or so. Took some novice hiker (Friends) and they did great. Definitely recommend!

View is spectacular. Snow and ice on the trail.
