A beautiful morning sunrise in Moraine Lake, Banff National Park, Canada

I do think it is nice. Many of the really busy trails are very worth doing at least once, because they are so busy because they *are* really beautiful, though also worth trying to hit them at different times on weekdays to try to cut down on the numbers a bit.
Eiffel and Wenkchemna are also nice.

Another option you may be interested in is Wasatch/Wastach Pass (spelling is debated).

Take the Larch Valley trail, and go up to Sentinel Pass.
Go over Sentinel Pass and down the other side to Paradise Valley.
Instead of turning right towards Lake Annette to finish the usual horseshoe, turn left. Hike up the valley a ways. When you get past Eiffel Peak, keep left.
You will eventually leave the official trail onto unofficial trails. Wastach Pass is between Eiffel Peak and Wastach Mountain, and you will hike up it from the north side, leaving the unofficial trail to hike up talus.
The view from the pass is nice, then you hike down the more scree-y south side, and hit the Eiffel Lake trail right around Eiffel Lake, and continue back on that trail to finish the loop back at Moraine Lake.

It’s a great way to do a bit of a different grand tour of the area, particularly if you’ve hiked most of the usual trails.
