Hiked this trail second week of June. Though busy, not as busy as walking along the lake. Lake Agnes was still mostly frozen but was still beautiful. We did not continue on to BeeHive, as it was snow covered just getting to the tea house....More

It may be a longer hike for some but it is far worth it. Be aware that it will be crowded. You will still get a great view but it's not the best place for solitude from the crowds. Be sure to check out the...More

Hiked in June in the middle of a snow fall. Beautiful views, very comfortable path (although need to climb about 1250 feet over a bit more than 1 mile up. Agnes tea house is a great reward for the effort

Lake Agnes is a small mountain lake in the Banff National Park of Alberta, Canada. It has a surface of 0.52 km² and is quite a hike ( 3.4 km one way ) up a pretty steep mountain.

I have visited Lake Anges twice, once in June and once in September. Though beautiful both times and I'm sure all year as well, September was incredible. Busy of course but the falls colours on the tamaracks against the blue blue water is amazing. The...More

It's a trek up to this fabulous spot but don't forget you can stop at mirror lake on the way up! Take water and bug spray and enjoy the scenery looking down over Lake Louise!
