The highpoint of the Swan Range, Holland Peak has expansive views from the summit as well as two scenic lakes with backpacking opportunities along the route.

About 2 mi. south of Condon, MT, take Rumble Creek Road east to Cooney Lookout and park at the trailhead at 4550 ft.

Follow the trail for about 1 mi. and after about 100 yards after the third bridge, look for a well worn trail heading up the hill side. Take this steep, hard-packed trail and follow it to Lower Rumble Creek Lake. From Lower Rumble Creek Lake, follow the south side trail around the lake and ascend to Upper Rumble Creek Lake. Both Upper and Lower Rumble Creek Lakes have fish and areas to camp. From Upper Rumble Creek Lake, follow a goat trail to the south and gain the ridge through some class II scrambling. Once on the ridge, follow the ridge north by picking your way along the ridge to the summit.

To descend, follow the same ascent route - do not attempt to descend straight down the peak as there are hidden cliff bands. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
