My wife and I hiked up to Turquoise Lake with our 9 month old in tow and it was an excellent hike. Amazing sights of the Swans and also the Missions. We hiked in mid July and there are some spots along the switch backs that bring you above Glacier Lake where you can see the rock slabs where you will find Lagoon Lake and Turquoise Lake. The hike has a consistent incline which made it a good burn of you are carrying gear for an overnight trip. Once you get to the top the final descent leads you to the lakes. Lots of bug hatches for the ones going up with a fly rod. Would definitely recommend going up above for a longer multi day camping trip to Lone Tree Pass.

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.

Very nice trail along beautiful Glacier Creek to a gorgeous lake at the end to soak your feet in. Three interesting creek crossings along the route.

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.

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 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.

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

Did this hike in the rain, with a 9-year old and a 6-year old, and it was awesome! Moderately steep at first, but nothing you can’t handle with a steady pace. Beautiful scenery in a magical forest. Definitely recommend!

great start of season hike! narrow trail and a lot of people on it but had so much fun and it was so pretty!

Beautiful hike up to the falls

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

About a 45min drive off the highway for one heck of a beautiful hike. The trail starts out fairly unchallenging and then eases you into 14 switchbacks that walk you above and beside Glacier Lake. The views are just getting started at this point. You can see the wall of the Swan mountain range behind you and glimpses of waterfalls fed by Lace lake which is fed by Turquoise Lake in front of you. Once at the top of the ridge you begin to descend, eventually reaching Lagoon Lake, (don’t be fooled into thinking you have made it).Lagoon lake is stunning and where we decided to pitch camp for the night, however, to reach Turquoise you have to go about another 3/4 of a mile downwards, then up to find it. We dropped our packs and then headed on down to turquoise lake to enjoy the sunrise the following morning. There is a bit of snow once you reach your highest elevations but nothing hike ruining at this point. There will definitely not be many more weekends to enjoy this magical place, so get her done while you can :)!

Very nice hike - no bugs and almost no people. Went a mile beyond maintained trail. Next time I'd go early and try for the mission range ridge.

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.

Great views! 6 to 6.5 miles to Turquoise Lake. Many huckleberries along the trail. The switchbacks are pretty gradual as you head up. Lots of goats!! Thunderstormed all night long, but waking up in such a beautiful place made it all worth it.

This Trail exceeded my expectations! My 4 and 5 year old were able to do it, and it was about 90 degrees out! definitely a kid-friendly Trail! If its hot, encourage them by letting them know two small Creeks cross the trail along your way and there are plenty of opportunities to jump in the lake as well. If it's a sunny day, this Trail sees a lot of sun quite often so make sure to bring sunscreen and bug spray! The trail is wide and beautiful the entire way up. I'll be back for sure. It is a gorgeous hike!!

Beautiful surroundings. Pretty steep uphill for a good portion. Easy way back, but be prepared for lots of bugs!

Canoeing on holland lake is near impossible to beat. We went at the end of may and we got a quiet lake front camp spot that was perfect.
