Park in the Lake Louise
parking areas and take the Saddleback Trail
a short ways to an intersection on your right/south to find the beginning of this short trail.
The trail heads south paralleling the edge of Lake Louise
, albeit from some ways up through thick forest. It then turns west and heads downhill a little to offer clear views across the beautiful lake. The Beehive and chateau are also clearly visible from this point.
