The trail is a beautiful hike.
The Lake Agnes tea house has been serving since 1905. It is small and gets crowded but be patient and you will get a table. The tea is geat and their mountain bar is a must. Take your time, relax and enjoy the experience. Take the time to walk the trail along the shore and get a view from the other end of the lake

Early October - Rent or bring crampons as this trail is busy and the snow higher up gets hard packed and slippery. We saw people struggling along in runners or city boots and had to help a woman who was stuck and couldn’t go up or down. The tea house was very busy and is close to closing for the season. If you had to pick one tea house, I would go for the Plain of Six Glaciers instead - the hike is nicer, the view sweeter, the tea house bigger, the food better, less busy.

While the hike up between Mirror Lake and Lake Agnes was extremely slippery, the views from the tea house are breathtaking and the tea at the top made the chill of the day worth it. It was snowing when we went up but it wasn’t too cold.

Fantastic trail up to the Lake Agnes Teahouse. It's quite steep from the start and mostly in forest but once you get to the top past Mirror Lake the views are spectacular. It was very icy and slippery on the way down so I'd recommend cleats if you are going towards the end of the season.

Great little trail especially with the reward of tea/hot chocolate at the top. There is a good incline for the whole way up. To be honest I felt coming down was harder then going up (my knees lol). Brought the beagle. She did well with it. I did this hike in the later afternoon. Took me a little over an hour to get up with the pooch, and less than an hour on the way down. Next time I'd like to bring more people and hang out on the patio of the tea house for a while longer!

Nice hike constant incline most of the way but not bad, if you have gone as far as here I recommend pushing for another 30mins to get to the big beehive. It offers a nice view over Lake Louise, you won't regret it.
