The Little Beehive, Lake Agnes, the Big Beehive: three of the most scenic locations at Lake Louise are included in this circuit. Ground squirrels, marmots, chipmunks, pikas, and Clark’s nutcrackers frequent the route. Surrounded by steep cliffs, the rich bluegreen of Lake Agnes is seen from a variety of vantage points on the way. Although the Beehives are low summits, their sheer cliffs provide outstanding views, and their slopes are covered with superb specimens of alpine larch. Lake Agnes Teahouse is a popular stop for refreshments.

The map provided by Trails was inaccurate. At the back end of the trail near the flow from the six glaciers there is a connector between the upper and lower trails. Otherwise, the hike is fabulous and not to be missed. Be sure to hike up to Agnes Lake, around the lake and then up to the Beehive. Keep going up the beehive until you get to the shelter, the views of Lake Louise, Mirror and Lake Agnes from the Beehive are not to be missed!
