The Beehive is a mountain located in Banff National Park of Alberta, Canada. It was named by J. Willoughby Astley in 1890 because the mountain resembles a beehive.[1] The mountain is also known as the Big Beehive as there is a smaller beehive shaped mountain nearby called the Little Beehive.

The mountain is located above Lake Louise and can be accessed via hiking trails either from Lake Louise or Lake Agnes.
