  • Fantastic views of Hugabee, Niblock, and Make Louise. About 10 miles up and back, with 3000 ft of elevation gain. Lots of casual hikers with you for the first half, up to the Lake Louise tea house, but more serene thereafter. Great summit experience.
  • A great hike brings you almost a kilometre above Lake Louise. Much quieter that the trail up Mt. Fairview with the added bonus of the optional descent to the Lake Agnes teahouse for a warm beverage on the way down.
