Holland Lake and Falls Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Holland Lake is a large 41 6-acre lake that lies at the base of the Swan Mountains at an elevation of 4,031 feet. The lake is fed by Holland Creek, which forms in the upper reaches of Waldbillig Mountain on the edge of the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Holland Falls is a beautiful and majestic 84-foot waterfall at the far east end of the lake. The Holland Falls Trail parallels the northern shore of Holland Lake to the creek and falls. The trail passes through stands of evergreens and leads to rock ledges, natural coves, and resting areas ideal for viewing the falls. From the overlook are sweeping vistas across Holland Lake, the Swan Valley, and the Mission Mountains. The trail is a popular access route into the Bob Marshall Wilderness, passing Upper Holland Lake en route to the boundary."

This is a great short hike with spectacular panoramic views, a waterfall, and beautiful Holland Lake. It is fairly easy at first and a little more steep towards the end. The mosquitoes are very hungry so do yourself a favor and douse yourself in lots of bug spray before you get started!
