This is a 3.5 km uphill hike and if you pace yourself, a very enjoyable cardio workout. I would advise anyone who wants a seat inside to start the ascent before 9 am as it gets very busy on the trail after that. You can't...More

The view over lake Agnes is worth the trip itself, but when you add tea and tasty treats it make for the perfect ending to a hike. Couple of things to note; it's cash only, do not leave any of your own trash, trash has...More

The location, hike, views are the main attractions. Sandwiches, soup and tea very good but almost anything will taste great in this surrounding. Remember to bring cash (co credit cards)

You must hike to this place before you leave the area! Even with ice and snow on the trail it is manageable with good hiking shoes and / or crampons. Earlier is better before it gets too busy. One of the best things we did...More

Don't bother with this very busy mediocre tea house. The service is awful, the variety of food is awful, the quality of the food is awful. The only reason it gets two stars is because it takes a long hike to get here and it's...More

Sorry I am not sure but if you contact them directly they do get back to you. I had asked about if they except reservations ( they do not ) and she called me back with a day.
Is it safe to hike this trail alone?

Absolutely. You will probably meet many people on their way up or back down.

Are dogs (on leash) allowed on the trail? Do you have a map of the trail - distance, length etc? Thanks! Karen

"Its a seasonal teahouse (like the Plane of 6 glaciers teahouse, which is listed on TripAdvisor), located on Lake Agnes in the Lake Louise area. A 2.5 mile hike brings you to this amazing little historic hut, perched on the rim of a cliff and looking over a lake to The Beehive and mountains beyond. So incredible to stumble across. Whats wonderful is that they have over 100 kinds of teas, good sandwiches and soups, and quite a selection of baked goods (gluten-free included!)".
