4 stars because the trail leading up to Lake Agnes is very busy. The route leading up to Big Beehive was also difficult to find exactly when covered in snow.

Loved this trail, nice little stop at the tea house at lake Agnes. Steady incline the entire way up. Great scenery the entire way. Highly recommend half-day hike. Amazing views of Lake Louise at the top!

Beautiful rocky mountain walls. Great view of Lake Louise and Lake Agnes as many posted pictures. Basically climbing up all the way and few downhills. There is also a trail down to the Plain of Six Glacier, starts from the top of Big Beehive.

Great hike with lovely views we did devils thumb first and the view from there is hard to beat, if you are only wanting a moderate hike this view would have to be one of the best I have seen for a moderate rated trail. Also you can stop off at the nice little tea house on the way for a breather if needed, they only accept cash too.

Absolute best hike I have been on, scenery wise! The hike up wasn't too bad either. It was nice being able to see Lake Louise, a waterfall, some other lakes (lake Agnes) and the tea house was so cute to have half way up by Lake Agnes! So beautiful I would for sure go again!!! The view at the top of the beehive seeing Lake Louise below was breathtaking.
