Did this hike clockwise (Plain of Six Glaciers, Highline Trail to Lake Agnes, Mirror Lake and return on Lake Agnes trail) to enjoy forested shade in the afternoon. Departed Lake Louise at 8 AM and returned at 2:45 PM with stops at the Plain of Six Glaciers teahouse, side trip out to the lookout, lunch at Lake Agnes and a quick stop at Mirror Lake. Good views and photo opportunities, forward and backwards. Wildflowers and two ice falls reverberating in the canyon, too. The trails got a lot more crowded the later the time. Definitely not best for tennis shoes or flip flops, although we saw hikers in them. Sufficient water required for length of hike, significant altitude gain, and weather.
