This trail branches off from the popular Lake Agnes/Little Beehive trail. This trail seems to be missing from most of the maps I've checked. But the trail is distinct. Once you leave the Little Beehive trail, the path is uncrowded and the views become more impressive.
From the Lake Louise Parking lot follow the signs for Lake Agnes

UpsideVery accessible, easy hike with great views of the glaciers, Mt Temple, the Valley and Lake Louise. You get great views fast, getting out the forest soon enough.
CommentI did St Piran right after Mt Niblock, taking the grassy slope horizontally and then, up to St Piran summit. Not the easiest part for sure, but pretty easy if you do it from the official trail on Little Beehive side of the Mount. I came back down the right way and trail is obvious at a certain point, so I would stay on the ridge until you pass down the boulders.

UpsideNo crowds. Views are outstanding. Less than two hours to summit from parking lot.
DownsideThe rest of the Lake Louise area is a zoo!
CommentLeave early or late to enjoy some solitude. We left around 9am and were one of two groups on summit. Trail has been crossed off of the trailhead sign for some reason, but trail and sign are still very visible on left side of trail to Little Beehive. A great, easy hike. We combined this summit with a trek out to Six Glaciers to fill out the day.
