Overview

A challenging 8 mile out-and-back from the Chateau Lake Louise, past three lakes and up, up, up to the peak of Mount St. Piran.

Description

Start at Chateau Lake Louise. Run the shoreline until the sign to the Lake Agnes Trail. Follow this path up to Mirror Lake. After taking a look, use the right fork to continue to Lake Agnes. At lake Agnes you can take a break at the tea house before continuing on the Little Beehive Trail.

Take this trail for a little over a quarter mile and take the small trail to the left (by a "Parks Canada" sign). Continue on the trail through the trees. You'll arrive at the bottom of switchbacks heading up to the peak. Once at the top, take a look around and then return the way you came.
