We only did the paved part of the trail which is really cool.

Who wants to make this way, must be there early. The first day we were too late, and the road there already closed. There are then bus transfers, but the waiting time is certainly 1.5-2 hours. So the whole thing again the next day, we were already at 7.30 am at the parking lot, and also found a free space. (however it rained and was pretty cold). The way is nice to go, we have also made the last part of the route, the view is worthwhile. Definitely warm clothes, we only had about 4 degrees ...

Beautiful path, ideal for short legs when traveling on the Icefields Parkway. Not too demanding, overwhelming views of the glacier. It took us about two and a half hours to get there and back. No break because it was just too cold and very windy ...

Great easy hike at the beginning, then it gets quite challenging at the very end. Keep pushing! The views at the high point are incredible. Definitely bring bear spray, came across a black bear on the way down.

Only did part of this and then got turned around by a sign saying you must have bear spray to continue. Wish that sign/warning was more prevalent before we started. Would have been good I think!

I’d highly recommend this trail. It’s just enough challenge to feel like I accomplished a good hike! “Easy” up to lake Agnes then the climb begins. Honestly the descent after the climb up to the Beehive was more challenging to me. Quite rocky and quite busy. Only issue I had with people was someone was playing music on a speaker while hiking. I’m a fan of using hiking to enjoy the surroundings and be more meditative.

Easy-Moderate Canmore Difficulty = ⭐️⭐️/ 5 Distance = ⭐️⭐️⭐️/ 5 Elevation = ⭐️/ 5 Scenery = ⭐️⭐️/ 5 Elapsed time = 2:36 Open walk down the creek bed. Depending on how much precipitation there has been when you go, prepare to get your feet wet. There are dead trees that you can use to cross the little creek at some points, others the creek is narrow enough to step over. There is very little shade on this hike.

The trail allows dogs, however, there are many parts where there are big boulders, specifically at the end. My dog struggled in these areas and without going through you will not be able to see the lake.

Great trail. Give yourself some time if going with kids. Went fairly early and no mosquitos! Very nice

Great hike, snow the night before did in the flowers but still a spectacular view at the top!

Great trail, and great views on August 17th!! We didn't do the whole course set out here. We first made a stop at Lake Agnus teahouse, before hitting Big Bee Hive. Stunning views from the top! Then worked our way back down, and walked the river back to the Fairmont. Bee Hive is a must do for anyone hitting the Lake Louise area.

This was hard but very worth it. First time hiking for a couple of our group, took about 6.5 hours but we were not moving for about 2.5. Views were unreal.

First campsite is further up then the provided GPS, bad storm blew in had to clear bush and set up makeshift camp. Lots of predator tracks make sure you travel in groups

Great hike tough off the start but clearly marked. Dragons back isn't for thefaintof heart, but if you have the right footwear should have no problem going straight up on the rock face. If you see bad weather don't attempt the dragons back!

Absolutely amazing trail. The route finding among the larger rocks wasn’t clear. However, all roads lead to the top! Make sure you have great footwear- very slippery at the top and the last push is all shale to the top just last where the tea house is (if you want)
