switchback hike up- provides great views of Lake Louise. Once at the top, Lake Agnes is crowded with the Lake Agnes Tea House being a BIG draw for the crowds. You can picnic here without buying lunch or tea. Beware- original quaint tea house was...More

A great way to spend the morning or afternoon. The trail this time of the year is busy with other hikers and at some points you may encounter riders on horseback. A short hike of approximately 3.4 km (one way) with an elevation gain of...More

We hiked to Lake Agnes in August 2017. The hike itself is a bit of a challenge and it took us about 90 minutes to get to Lake Agnes. Not too steep but a steady climb that rarely levels out. There are some pretty views...More

Lake Agnes is gorgeous and has a tea house but it's a very hard hike in my opinion. Very rewarding though so worth the walk. It's crowded to pack a lunch and wear good shoes !

This forested trail goes up from Lake Louise passing Mirror Lake and then on to Lake Agnes, where there is a tea house. The altitude gain is about 1300 feet, and the distance about 4 1/2 miles round trip.

The trail up to agnes is definitely worth doing, be sure to stop at mirror lake. The tea house has some good stuff but definitely pricey! Lovely hike up from agnes to little beehive - good views of lake louise and mirror lake.

This hike is relatively short, but the elevation gain is moderate but doable by most people. The view from up here and the visit to the Tea House is worth the effort. Great place to spend a day hiking. If you are up to it,...More

A lovely spot, but surprised by the number of people who make the hike to Agnes Lake. I know it was high season, but I thought we might leave more people behind at the lake. A bit of a slog up, as views of Lake...More

The hike to Lake Agnes is simply beautiful. It is of a moderate difficulty level in my opinion, and took us 47 minutes to reach the lake from the beginning of the trail. This is however on a good pace. The views of the lake...More
