If you don't feel comfortable doing the complete Beehive Trail above Lake Louise, take advantage of its smaller brother, the Little Beehive Trail, just to get incredibly nice views of the lake.

Amazing views. If you head towards beehives from Fairmont, it's straight up but very do-able. Trails are fairly well groomed but have some roots and rocks to navigate. You'll pass mirror lake on the way to little beehive which is beautiful and a great photo...More

This is a good hike to make if you're at Lake Agnes. You can get a good view of Lake Louise and the river valley. It's no more than ~1.5 km. It was snowy and cloudy when I was there (even though it was June),...More

If Lake Agnes Teahouse is your destination, good for you. But just 1 km farther to the Little Beehive is a must! It's a serious hike! It is ALL uphill, no spots where it levels out, just varying degrees of incline (the entire hike to...More
