Worth the effort!

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!

If you are visiting the Lake Louise area, and you have the time to take a short hike, then I would highly recommend this hike. It's not the most spectacular hike in the Rockies, but I feel that people need to get out of their cars and explore; there's far more to experience in the national parks than just the... More

Both lakes Agnes and Mirror lakes worth a visit, if only due to the fact that there are less people.

Talk about an out of the way place, this lake is tiny. It's surrounded by trees and hills so not much of any view. It's also pretty cool temperature wise, very little direct sunlight.

The tea house was closed, but we made the 3.8km trek up. The views were amazing but the hike was pretty tough. Good snow boots are a must, we saw people in dress shoes. Also, wear layers that wick sweat! It's cold to start but as you exert yourself you get soggy pretty fast and then you get cold.

We did this Hike as a part of the entire Lake Agnes-Six Plain Glacier Loop. The Entire hike took us 9 hours with a picnic, a stop at Little Beehive and stopping a thousand times to take pictures! We started at 7am from the Parking Lot, it was a Mid-September but the mornings were hovering around 0*C. When we Left... More

This is a long hike which is quite steep and fairly crowded. This starts off from Lake Louise and getting to lake louise is not easy as parking in summer is hard. The hike takes you to the Lake Agnes Tea house , it is nice but has limited views and can be quite boring. Lake Agnes is nice but... More

Great Hike albeit rated hard if you decide on the Big Beehive Highline Trail to Lake Agnes from the Plain of the 6 Glaciers as we did. Coming that way is quite steep with a multitude of switchbacks. However when at the summit the rewards are the views. (Make sure you walk a few hundred metres to the hut/shelter for... More
