This trail links the South Fork of the Flathead with the passes in the Swan Range above Holland Lake. It is less heavily traveled than either the Bartlett Creek or Holbrook Creek trails, and can be a bit faint in places. However, nowhere is the trail so indistinct that it poses a route-finding problem. The lower level of traffic here results in a firmer trail bed during wet weather as well as more solitude for visitors. The Big Knife Lakes at the head of the valley provide the only real scenic attraction along the route.
