    PEYTO LAKE VIEWPOINT

    by mtncorg Written Apr 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A little over 20 miles north of Lake Louise on the Icefields Parkway, you will come to a viewpoint over Lake Louise that is an obligatory stopping point for travelers. The view over the glacially turquoise waters of Peyto Lake below are sublime. What most people don’t realize is that another one of those hiking gems of the Canadian Rockies also emanates from here - the 16 kilometer walk to Cauldron Lake. Most are en route for Jasper. Cauldron Lake is a primeval gem waiting for you. You do need to give it a full day.

    Fun Alternatives: Take your picture of magnificent Peyto Lake and then wander into magnificence en route to Cauldron Lake.

    LAKE AGNESS

    by mtncorg Written Apr 30, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The teahouse is the magnet for sweating masses out of the Chateau Lake Louise. The lake is named for the First Lady of Canada, Lady Susan Agness MacDonald, who was the second lady to have officially visited the lake - the first was also named Agness :-] The lake is a little over five kilometers up from the hotel - almost 400 vertical meters are gained. En route you wander past the Little Beehive and Mirror Lake. Originally, Lake Agness was described as ‘a wild tarn imprisoned by cheerless cliffs’, but that was in a day without the throngs who now visit.

    Fun Alternatives: The lake is worth a visit, but you should continue on from here to the Plain of the Six Glaciers, leaving behind many of your fellow wanders and multiplying your alpine experiences.
