Lake Agnes Tea House, Banff National Park, Alberta

Lake Agnes Trail leads up from Lake Louise (4.5 miles round trip, 1,300 feet elevation gain).
The Lake Agnes Tea House at 7,005 feet, was built by the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1901 as a refuge for hikers. You climb steadily on a forested trail, past Mirror Lake and the waterfall that cascades out of Lake Agnes, before arriving at the idyllic alpine waters of Lake Agnes and enjoying speciality teas and delicious homemade baking.
Fresh supplies are brought up the trail by the staff almost daily.
