We did just hiked from Lake Louise up to Lake Agnes and the Teahouse and then back down. There was about 2-4 inches of snow on the ground which made it challenging. Be prepared, and know that the views are definitely worth it. It's an incline essentially all the way to the top.

An early start at Lake Louise gets you an awesome sunrise photo set. The teahouse along Lake Agnes is a great way to recharge. Attack the big beehive first to make the rest of the hike even more enjoyable.

Has all the characteristics of a great hike! Long, has steep sections, amazing views and scenery that make it all worth it. And the tea house is a fantastic bonus!

stunning views of the lake and chateau. A bit crowded until you pass the teahouse and start the climb up to either peak. well worth it to do both little beehive and big beehive.
4.5 hours with stops at each peak and the teahouse.

Awesome hike with the family today. Views are spectacular! Was quite busy up to the Agnes tea house and then the crowds were left behind. It took about 5 hours with a break on top of the big beehive. Highly recommend it!

Great moderate hike with lakes throughout the way and a stunning view of Lake Louise!

We hiked to Big Bee Hive on July 3 and it was incredible. Lots of people up to the tea house but fewer on the second part. We took the back trail back down. Loved it so much.

Did the big beehive, there is still a lot of snow at the top, but it is doable. Beautiful views!!

There is a good amount of snow at the top in early June, but Little Beehive is still doable! Beautiful views!

Tough but worth it. The teahouse is halfway up and only takes cash.

While visiting one of the most famous lakes in the world, be sure to put in some effort and visit Lake Louise's little sister, Lake Agnes. Trail is very well maintained. You can grab fantastic hot tea at the shack while overlooking Lake Agnes. The beehives are wondrous, the water is beautiful, and pretty much everything is fantastic about this classic hike.

Nice Hike to the summit of the Big Beehive. We did it from the Plain of the 6 Glaciers via the Highline Trail. Quite steep but worth it from the views you get at the top. Totally recommended hike. Make sure you go to the Hut/Shelter at the top for some great views of Lake Louise.

Gorgeous hike! Started at lake louise at 4pm and barely saw anyone the entire time. Went to little beehive then tea house and up to big beehive. The way down is quite boring and long. Took 4 hours total with lots of time hanging out at the top!

If you are looking for an easier hike and don't mind crowds this is a great hike. It took my partner and I a total of 3 hours out and back. The views are great but the trail is very crowded. I would advise going early to beat the crowd.
