This is a really nice hike to a very pretty lake. Go early.

The hike itself is super mellow and family friendly. HIGHLY recommend the nearby campground. Wrote up a post on Holland Lake with pics if anyone is interested: https://practicalvagabonds.com/holland-lake-montana/

One of the prettiest fall color trails you will find in early October. The drive in passes many striking fall scenes as well.

Easy trail with well maintained Creek crossings ending in gorgeous mountain lake views. Often quite busy despite the lengthy drive to the trailhead

Did this the weekend after Labor Day and it was an instant favorite. The top is the payoff - moderately steep switchbacks with stunning views lead to a rock formation with super cool caves, keyholes and a summit rock with outrageous views. If you’re in shape it’s a quick 2.5-3 hours up and down. Highly recommend!

Well worth the climb! Stopped at several of the offshoots to check out the views.

Nice easy trail. scenery was awesome.

Not too difficult of a trail. Rocky right towards the top. Can be windy at the lake depending on weather. Took us about an hour and 15 minutes to hike up and an hour back. Beautiful views and fall colors are incredible.

Totally enjoyed this hike!

great for small kids

Bring fly pole for Graylings, also if want can try bottom fishing and get some cutthroats. Very fun hike and fishing!

Hiked this little trail on our way out from west glacier to the great falls airport and it was AMAZING! Easy and well marked trail, gorgeous all the way along the lake, mostly shaded, and a treat of a waterfall at the end! Awesome highly recommended.

Really amazing trail! I hiked it solo on 9/16/18. I was afraid of bears but did have spray. Just like everyone has posted, it is a moderately rocky trail so watch your step, almost no flat portions but no exposed slabs or anything like like, worth the hike!!!! Note, the rocks were a bit slippery because it had rained the night before. Make sure to wear hiking shoes. The trail took me under 2 hours to summit and a bit over an hour to descend. I am from CT and am used to hiking steep trails in the White Mountains but I am not used to the elevation. Bring water, a snack, and take your time.

This was our first trail using all trails app. The trailhead was easy to find and has a bathroom. The hike starts off a slight bit steep but levels off nicely toward the top. The lake was really nice. We tried to walk to the second lake but the trail was a lot harder to follow and we were running short on daylight so we turned back. All in all great hike.

The lake is freezing but I recommend jumping in anyway.

Stunning views for the duration of this trail.

An excellent hike/trail run if you’re looking for something quick!

Bring a fly rod for graylings.

This was a fun hike along the lake. I would rate this as Moderate, due to the rocky incline towards the end of the hike.

Amazing hike! Also swam in the lake, which was a great temperature in September. Easy out and back and great views!

Busy trail. Best to head up early and on the weekday. Bring your fly rod, water and bear spray. Worth the rocky hike.

Loved this hike. I’m a beginner hiker so this was a bit difficult but it was beautiful and worth it. There are not very many flat spots so it continuously goes uphill but the lake at the top is breath taking!

Nice short hike. Picnic tables etc. at trailhead parking lot. Very pretty. Good hike for families and people who have difficulties on unimproved trails.

Great hike, my son even made it and he’s only 5. Beautiful spot.

Pretty awesome trail, and length was about perfect for toddler and baby in backpack with a dog... beautiful views and waterfall was very refreshing and beautiful. Only downside was ton of mosquitos everywhere!

The trail was easy to follow. It was a climb and took us over 2 hours to get to the lake. hiking shoes definitely recommend
