Very tough hike.

Absolutely gorgeous. Saw a lot of animals and wild flowers. Enjoyed endless rainfall the first day. Couldn’t make it all the way to Sapphire lake and instead stopped at Upper Holland.

Trail is well traveled and easy to follow.

Recommend bringing a friend.

Great hike. We did an out and back stopping at Upper Holland Lake. The mosquitoes were bad the first mile or so so make sure to have bug repellent. The out trip is mostly up hill so it will take you longer going out than back. Views along the trail were outstanding. Upper Holland lake was very serene. 4.5 Stars.
