Hiking at Lake Louise, Alberta

From the Tea House at Agnes Lake

It is a couple of hours to drive to Lake Louise from Calgary with the construction and all but well worth it.  We drove up yesterday and went on the hike that took us up to Lake Agnes and the Tea House.  The top is a little over 1000 feet above Lake Louise.  The trail is wide and well kept and an easy walk for the most part except for some muddy sections this time of the year.  It is all upgrade on the way up – no breaks unless you stop.  I think it is about 3.4 km each way.  About half to 2/3s of the way up you will come to Mirror Lake.  At the top we sat outside and had our tea and coffee and took some pictures.  Quite a few people on the trail and at the top.  Languages and accents from all over the world.  The view from the top and some spots on the way up were spectacular.  If you are not hiking regularly, you will likely feel some sore muscles for a day or two afterward.
