Interesting and simple circular tour to visit the Lake Louise area, within this impressive glacial valley, one of the best known and busiest in Banff National Park, in the Canadian Rockies. It is a bear area and they warn you everywhere, so that you can end up obsessing a little. We did not find any, but it is assumed that as you are far from the busiest areas, it is advisable to go in groups, make some noise, speak loudly and even carry anti-exprays.
The route is very simple and can really be lengthened and shortened according to the need and desire of each one. We made a complete version, although a posteriori, I think it fell somewhat short. We climb from the Lake Louise service area along the Lake Agnes Trail to the Mirror Lake and then to the lake that gives the trail its name. Then we go up to the Big Beehive (a small hill that closes Lake Agnes in the south and offers spectacular views). We then descend the Highline Trail, to later detour onto the Plain of the Six Glaciers Trail, before heading back down the Lakeshore Trail to the starting point. I regret not having followed the valley floor down the Plain of the Six Glaciers Trail, but we didn't have much time and were a bit obsessed with the bear theme (it was our first excursion in the area).
We made the route in August 2007 but I created it manually in April 2020.
