The trail to Lake Agnes is heavily trafficked, making it a fairly accessible hike. After grinding up some switchbacks, you’ll come to Mirror Lake, a tiny body of water with amazing reflections. Be sure to have a little snack and take in the views! Next stop: Lake Agnes and the Tea House. After a few more switchbacks you’ll come to the nature oasis nestled between Mount St. Piran and the Big Bee Hive. Grab a cup of tea and a bowl of soup from the Tea House, give your legs a rest, and take in the views of Lake Agnes.
Bonus: If you’re feeling like you have some gas left in the tank, we suggest heading to the top of the Big Bee Hive. Follow around the back of Lake Agnes and be prepared for steep switchbacks. We promise the views of Lake Louise down below are worth the extra sweat!

Lady MacDonald is a great hike for anyone who’s after a challenge. It’s quite steep and there isn’t much shade from trees, you’ll need lots of water! You might hate us during the climb, but we’re confident that all will be forgiven once you reach the top and get to take in the majestic views.
