Highly recommended! Gently rolling, well-marked trail right alongside this spectacularly beautiful lake--fantastic views on all parts of the trail. A bit of an uphill and rocky the last 1/3-1/2 mile as you make your way up to the Falls, but so worth it once you get up there. I went just after Labor Day and did not have issues with the mosquitoes as some have mentioned. You're in bear country, of course, so be smart and carry bear spray, make noise as you go and preferably, unlike me, do not hike alone--I saw no bears (or bear scat on the trail) on my hike. Would be a beautiful lake to kayak or canoe, also--pristine, clear and beautiful waters, gorgeous coves. Easy hike for just about everyone I would think (although steep toward the falls). I'll be taking this hike again!

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/

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.

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.

Reaching the waterfall, you will also get a nive view over Holland Lake.

Great hike !! Easy hike with elevation change to help keep the cardio up! Beautiful day and views of Holland Lake as well as the waterfall.

Bonus:
Brown bear watch in affect.

Nice pool at base of the waterfall

We enjoyed ourselves and were able to get out of the smoke from left coast fires.

loved it! we have a 1 year old and 3 year old and our 3 year old did great! pretty easy hike for most of the way until 0.5 mile before reaching the falls is a little climb but boy .. so worth it. So beautiful up top!! I highly recommend it!

Here's the deal. The smoke from fires hasn't been great, but the views and hike to Upper Holland lake are still worth the trek. After spending 4 days up in the area this last weekend, the 7 miles in and 2200ft elevation gain make for a solid 14mi round trip trek if you're looking for a full day. In the event you're bring gear to camp, there are plenty of solid options around the lake ( i recommend going to the east side) to have the best tree cover in the event of a rogue storm. Otherwise, just get out and enjoy it!

This place is beautiful! Seems like a hidden treasure. The lake is stunning, blue, clear water. Then there is a great hike to the waterfall (Holland Falls) - it's a bit uphill, but the views are worth it. Bring bug spray as the mosquitoes come out in the evening, but are not too bad. Highly recommend.

Gorgeous short hike. Went midday, it was hot and hazy, but no mosquitos today! Our dogs loved the easy access to the lake at multiple points along the way to the falls.

Mosquitoes are definitely trying to eat as much as you as possible so spray before and you will be happy. Spectacular views all the way up. Easy going at first and a little more steep towards the end so save your energy and also enjoy the lake.

Got about half way to the lake and had to turn around because he mosquitoes were so bad. I even had long layers on and it didn’t help. No kind of bug spray can help you. I’m sure the view is beautiful and hopefully I’ll be back some day but highly suggest avoiding this trail right now

R3; ruts, roots, and rocks = Montana Easy, but bring walking sticks and good mosquito protection for a great hike. Get as close to falling water as you want.

I've hiked this twice: both times with novice hikers. and both times with no problems! Beautiful photo opportunities, beautiful views! Anyone who is not bound to a stroller or wheel chair can make this hike (with help in some areas). A quote from my 12 year old nephew: THIS (meaning the falls) makes it all worth it!!

Great short hike with good panoramic views and
a waterfall. Only downside was the amount of people on the trail. Was a holiday weekend.

Beautiful views for a quick out and back trip. Easy enough for a season starter to get you back into hiking.

Easy and kid friendly hike. Falls are beautiful and you can hike right up to them. The views of the lake and Mission mountains are fantastic. Can be crowded.
