The hike upwards, 3.4km, is worth. At the top you will find a beautiful tiny lake and a delicious Tea House where you can enjoy a sandwich, tea and an apple crumb cake. On the way up you can also enjoy another small lake, Mirror Lake.

It's rather uphill all the way so you need to be somewhat in shape. Mirror lake is a real highlight and a nice rewarding halfway point. We lost most of our view due to fog/mist so try to go when it's sunny. Watch the sudden dropoffs along most of the trail but they make for some awesome views!

Great hike up to the Tea House. It is all up hill but overall an easy to moderate hike. We read the other reviews about heading up early and would recommend this. We started the hike just before 10am and it was perfect amount of people. The tea house is such a nice relaxing spot high up in the mountains.... More

We enjoyed our hike from Lake Louise through the trail in the woods to Mirror Lake and then to Lake Agnes. The lakes were a beautiful turquoise colour and surrounded by pretty wild flowers and majestic moutains. The trail was quite busy in the afternoon, so heading out early is recommended if you want to experience some solitude. The tea... More

It's a nice walk up and a pretty tea house near the lake. I did prefer the other tea house though if you have to choose one to visit. This one seemed very busy compared to the other one.

A great up hill walk. It takes about 1-2 hours depending on your fitness level. Being reasonably fit it took us just under the hour, however be realistic about your own fitness levels as frequent breaks may be needed as it is a constant climb to the lake. The treat is not just the lovely views, but the Tea House... More

We really enjoyed this hike, but get on the trail early! We began at 8:00 and didn't find it too busy, but as we left the tea house at about 10:00, people were beginning to pour in! The hike is somewhat steep, but not terrible. We met an older hiker along the way who said we should go on up... More

We're reasonably fit so didn't find the trail very tiring. However, we passed some people who were unfit and needed frequent breaks. .There is a tea house but we didnt use it as we had our own drinks and didnt want to spend a long time there because we needed to keep moving. The lake is pretty and the walk... More

This was a great hike with a pretty big elevation gains. The payoff is a wonderful little lake with a tea house. Make you continue on to Little Beehive for jaw dropping views of Lake Louise, the hotel and the entire valley.

I would rate this as an easy hike for those who are fit...for myself, a bit of a challenge! This was by far one on my most picturesque hikes...comparable perhaps to Monte Bre in Lugano Switzerland. While the hike was well worth the views, I cannot say the same for the food and service at the Lake Agnes Tea House.... More
