Nice walk. Beautiful views.

a short boardwalk stroll to very beautiful thermal pools
get there before it warms up to see the steam wafting through the air

So many mud pots. It's my first time to see the boiling mud. Very cute.

Actually I don't think this fall is as good as many other falls in Yellowstone, while the trail is very short and won't consume many time.

It's colorful and beautiful here.

A interesting hike. Lots of mud pots. One of the advantage of this trail is that there will not be so many visitor as other places in Yellowstone. You can get peace here.

The grand Grand Prismatic Spring is certainly one of the most deserve to see in the Yellowstone. However, It's too large to see the whole prism besides it. I suggest to hike both this trail and the other trail going to the mountain besides the prism and see it from above.

A good choice to see the geysers. Lots of geysers along the trail. Remember to plan enough time for this trail. You will stay more time then you expect.

When I went there it's raining and too much fog. I think it will be better in a sunny day. Besides, I didn't see the fish cone. I think it is related to the water level in the lake.

This our first stop and exposure to thermal activity. This was cool and worth the stop but it was crowded

Quick walk in a geyser area. But it's very crowded and parking can take a while.

Nice little walk close to the lake and around the geyers. Very crowded, though (I was there when it rained heavily, and there were still so many people).

This was our first loop / home at Yellowstone, an excellent way to start. Relatively short and super informative, many interesting features to see.

A grand old redwood in Wyoming? Steps away from your car. 3+

everything is beautiful. it's all on a different scale of beauty

I did trail in July 2017. Interesting views and unique perspective of the falls. Stairs, stairs and more stairs.

A MUST!!!!! Overwhelmingly in awe! Try to see Beehive Geysers...it's the best

Far too crowded when I visited and slightly worn. The boardwalk needs renovations and there were unattended children running amuck. It's ok for strolling but tourists have torn the place up.

Very pretty - also great if you’re killing time waiting for Old Faithful!

Easy boardwalk hike. Parking can be horrendous! Kids loved the trail and we loved the “new” hot springs and mud pots.

Super family friendly and easy walk around these gorgeous, vibrant hot springs. Great view of Yellowstone Lake as well, definitely worth a stop.

nice drive and not busy.. the cone geyser was a first!

quick offshoot from the road to stretch the legs and marvel how a redwood is in the park!

Easy descent down to the falls or down the short trail off to the right to get down near the river. Beautiful views of both the falls and the river. Tends to be a little crowded throughout the day but overall incredible up close sights to see

This was a nice walk. A lot of people complain about the smell. It’s not pleasant by any means but It didn’t bother me. Maybe I just happen to be there on decent afternoon. There was several bison on the trail to see as well. And I mean up and close.

Another beautiful sight at Yellowstone. Kid friendly and short enough to keep my four year old from getting tired and fussy.

Nothing too exciting. Steep switchbacks on the way back up and way too many tourists climbing under the barricades and signs posted stay on trail. Lots of disrespectful families which is disappointing

Loved this little walk through all the paint pots. Fun little walk

This trail will kick your butt if your not in good shape. Its an interesting feeling climbing down and back up hundreds of metal stairs with the feeling "This could break at any moment". I really enjoyed the memory of this hike. Amazing photo op at the bottom of the falls.

This isn't really a hike, it's a boardwalk path. It's good, quick loop that gives you views of the lake, plus some hot springs and other thermal features. If you don't have much time in the park, this is a great spot to see a lot in one short walk. Be prepared to fight through crowds.

I'd recommend doing this and the Yellowstone Lake Overlook trail, another short hike which leaves from the same parking lot. There you can get overhead views of the lake away from the crowds.
