Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, it is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. Preserved within Yellowstone National Park are Old Faithful and a collection of the world's most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, and the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone.

A realitively easy hike I did in mid-Sept with a few steeper sections. An out & back switchback trail that is easy to follow. Actual hiking time out and back took me 3 hrs. Views at top are fantastic looking toward Old Faithful in the distance and the Teton's further. Windy at top so feels much colder, especially if you stop for picnic lunch like I did.

We hiked this route south to north. A beautiful area with little foot traffic on the Southern part of the route. I loved the long wondering meadows that took control of the first day of hiking. Day one is a bit long and a pretty strenuous climb over Mist Creek Pass. After reaching the Lamar Valley we came across numerous horse parties that had effectively destroyed the trails in the wet week we went. Unfortunately we only came across wolf and bear sign and never saw any animals. Not a beginners hike for the back country but absolutely worth the effort.

Nice walk around the board walk for geyser observation. We did the Viewpoint trail (rated easy) for great views of the Geyser basin. The Solitary Geyser on that trail was a bit disappointing (only erupts 1metre high) but the walk was nice.

Step is hard but not long. You can finish it in 15min round trip. Actual this trail is not worth to spend time cause no beautiful scenery. I prefer red rock trail more.

Great trail but keep in mind you'll be going mostly uphill on the way back.

Even with a little rain this is a great trail!

Easy hour long hike! Great views from the bridge and only a little bit steep near the top.
