The first 1.2 miles is pretty horrible, with almost a straight uphill through the trees, and no break in gradient. The vertical elevation gain is 2200' in this section. After that, the trail, and the views open up and it is a five star hike from then on with the trail having glacier views, and views in all directions including into Glacier National Park and the Jewel Basin. Hiking poles are definitely recommended, especially for the last 1.2 mile downhill section or you will most likely slip a few times.

I'm from MT, so this would definitely be considered an easy trail (from Lodge to Lower Holland Falls), but folks from other states (or with minimal experience hiking) may find this trail more "moderate". Even so, the trail is well-travelled, so there's no guessing where it may lead. The last quarter-mile up to the falls does have a more steep incline and is quite rocky, so step lively! Bring a camera for some breathtaking views of and from the Falls.

great place to ride snowmobile or UTV, dirt road runs along the West Side of Reservoir with plenty of spots for fishing or camping. Heavy use during the summer months.

Great place to start hiking, watch your trail markers, several trails cross over and run along side. Great views of the Lake and South Kalispell. Late spring has been the best time for me.

Great hike, Ive been on this trail several times and enjoyed each time. This trail has a lot of switchbacks and steep sections. Hiking up to the top and seeing the lake is well worth the hike. Watch out for the bears along this trail ...

Great shortie hike, ran into about 2 feet of snow at the lake but, great big views for such a brief (strenuous) trek!

Such a beautiful fall day. Fairly easy hike with amazing views

Awesome hike on an easy trail.


Great view from the trail up to the falls! Well worth the hike!

This was an amazing fall hike- colors were unbelievable!! Definitely up hill until you get to the lake but well worth it!

Great views and wildlife
