This is a 2.5 mile upward hike to this lake. We arrived when it was fogged in, but thankfully after awhile the fog lifted. This does not last long so you have to be lucky and just hope it doesn't rain/snow. I did the trip for the hike do I was not disappoint noted.

Driving to Lake Louise was more of a challenge- be prepared to have patience. We arrived around 12:30 had lunch at the hotel and started the climb shortly after. The 1,256 ft climb up is worth it - it will take an hour to climb to the top. Skip the Tea House unless you can wait, have cash and want... More

We walked up to Lake Agnes this morning. We left Lake Louise at about 8am and we had many stops on the way. When we arrived at Lake Agnes the tea house wasn't very busy about 9:50am. On our way down beginning at 11:00am there were many other walkers in their way up...tea house would have been very busy. Mirror... More

It's a 3.5-4 hrs round trip and classified as a moderate hike but worth every minute! We stopped for quite a while at mirror lake on the way up too which still had snow on its banks. To make it a round trip we went up the steep path to the left of mirror lake and back down the other... More

This hike was uphill all the way but every step we took was worth it to see Lake Agnes! I wish the Teahouse had been open but it was too early in the season. The lake was still covered in ice but it's beautiful no matter!

Though not so scenic on the first kilometer, it does eventually open up to get some nice views of lake Louise. The first Lake you'll see along the way is Mirror Lake - a nice spot for a break. Then further up is Lake Agnes, which is a beautiful spot that views all the way back to the ski resort... More

We took a slow stroll up the mountain towards Agnes Lake and the Tea house. As one of our party was an asthma sufferer, we just took our time and stopped frequently, which turned out to be a great way to take in the breathtaking views on the way up. This is an easy hike which makes it great for... More

We went the lake Agnes as part of a longer hike with my 3 year old. This path is easily walkable for all ages. Although there is some incline (if you didn't guess by climbing up a mountain) a slower pace would still see pretty much everyone get to the top. The tea house and lake are a great view... More

This place is beautiful and a fairly close hike from the Chateau. Excellent views . The terrain can be a bit rough at times but the trail is well maintained and wide.

Very nice place... Breathtaking in my book. We did the 3 hour horse back trip up to the lake with Brewster Adventures. The weather was great. Suggest only visiting this place early in the morning as it can get busy.
