We loved this hike. Still can’t believe we were there ❤️

This trail was worth it! I recorded one mile of total hiking, and that took about forty five minutes. This trail is very steep and is switchbacks the whole way, so I highly recommend wearing sturdy athletic or hiking shoes. The trail is pretty broad; it can handle two way traffic. And the falls are so gorgeous. The sound of the water rushing off of the falls is so soothing. You can take breathtaking pictures. You can also see the Upper Falls, although not as well. Definitely an awesome adventure!

I don't usually review trails, but this one is pretty great! We went a little later, so it wasn't as busy. But we got to a point in the trail where a moose and her baby were on the trail. We had to wander off the trail but it was an awesome experience. The scenery is also beautiful. It's 4 miles but it's very casual.

Car pullout with small walking path overlooking the falls. Not really a trail, but a beautiful view!

Easy easy a fun quick hike

So many switch backs but a great little walk to see the waterfall.

Great hike just always crowded.

Hiked this trail to the overlook. Wow! it's a gorgeous view. I'd call it a moderate hike. We are seniors in our 60's, and felt like it gave us a little challenge. We packed our lunch and sat at the overlook eating on a beautiful fall afternoon. The only disappointment we had was the lack of wildlife. Even from the overlook, we could see no wildlife. But, that's the way it's been the entire trip. Where are all the animals? Wolves taking care of them?

Neat views from the point.

this is one of my favorite hikes. Theres stunning views even just a mile or two in. My family hikes here every year. You can go inside the windcave, but be cautious, there are currents inside the cave where you can't tell how deep they are, make sure you stay out of the water as much as you can, and take a reliable headlamp.

This is an awesome little trail to get a sample of a lot of the wonders of Yellowstone. There are some sections with stairs, which, during our October visit, were caked in ice and really tricky to manage for children. Worth it though!

A short boardwalk, not really a hike, but fantastic anyway! A must-see.

Great views and a fairly short, very pretty hike. Kid-friendly. We were cautioned to watch for bears, as some frequent the area.

Lovely short hike/walk. Folks in front of us saw Moose. We enjoyed mallards on the river.

Nice short easy hike toward hermitage point but turned off to herron pond and swan lake. Saw several swans in swan lake. Beautiful view of the mountains initially

Beautiful trail past String Lake and Leigh Lake. You can get some nice photos of the mountains reflected in the lakes. Gorgeous, clear water. Very flat trail, so great for a recovery hike if you’ve done something challenging the prior day. Ice starting to form on the lakes. Hiked Oct 15.

Beautiful falls. Got to see a bald eagle come up the river and fly over the falls.

Such a pretty magical place. Absolute must if you go to Yellowstone.

So gorgeous!!!! Loved the hike!

We hiked about a half mile to the north and saw two female moose just hanging out. One walked into the river then ate leaves. They were there for a while despite the on and off rain sprinkles. This was around 3pm today 10-2-18

Fall colors were amazing! We hiked a little into the canyon, and in the switchback past the overlook, we saw a small black bear.

Loved this hike! To the falls is a easy hike. We decided to do the loop after we got to the falls and saw how amazing it was. We went to the falls first and I want to think going to the falls first is the best route. But when we came down the other side it looked more gradual and had switchbacks. Our favorite hike in the park that we done this weekend.

lots of steps

Cold morning created a beautiful steam-filled, icy wonderland. Very easy walk but worth staying a few minutes at each thermal feature to listen and observe. Have to say Vixen was my favorite - nice small geyser, spurting away and then just stopped, starting up again in a minute or so. Amazing.
