Your end point is Holly Lake, a high alpine lake hanging into a cirque halfway up rugged Paintbrush Canyon. Your starting point is String Lake, less dramatic, but equally beautiful. Our recommendation is to make it to Holly and back before exploring String. The warmest lake in the park, there is no better way to end this 12-mile round-trip hike than by soaking your feet in String Lake.
