Great winter hike,did it in November :) will do it again in the summer to see the actual views as everything was snowed out. Lol

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.

Stunning scenery. Well worth the effort. Even our 8-year-old enjoyed the hike. Lots of other people enjoying the hike as well!

Very well maintained trail with beautiful views throughout. This trail would have 5 stars if it weren't for the people! We started at 8:30am and there were already people everywhere! Parking would be a nightmare for anyone starting this trail after 8:30am on a Saturday. We did the Plain of 6 Glaciers and combined it with the Beehive/Lake Agnes Teahouse. Gorgeous views of glaciers, Lake Louise and Lake Agnes. Would definitely do this again but would start earlier or much much later!
