We were originally going to stop for tea at the lake Agnes tea house but the line up there was crazy so we kept on hiking and went up to this tea house. We had lovely views and a delicious piece of chocolate cake!

I understand it is normally scheduled to open the first weekend in June. However, there is a heavy snowpack this year, so the trail to the teahouse may still be snowed in. If not snowed in, certainly muddy. If yu decide... More
