Did this a couple of years back. Amazing hike with amazing views at the top. Not an easy hike so very rewarding once completed.

Bizarre is the only word for this place...not like the rest of Yellowstone at all. Definitely recommend.

Great great view...a little crowded but still pretty awesome!

Classic...not a necessarily a hike but it’s super amazing still.

The lake behind the geysers made it that much more interesting...one of my favorite geyser basins.

Best place to see the paint pots in Yellowstone!

Stunning, really loved it

This short jaunt was like walking out onto an alien planet. The trees give way to a landscape you won’t see anywhere else on Earth.

Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me with what she is capable of. Fascinating stop this was!

Real cool spot to check out some hot springs

Do the full trail!!!! We saw so many people turn around at the falls but we kept going to the top of the mountain and it was SOOO worth it. Probably my favorite hike we did in Yellowstone! The view of all the geysers steaming in September was like something I’ll probably never see again. Amazinggggg!!!!

Interesting trail. Got to see old faithful blow twice! So many interesting hot springs and geysers here.

Beautiful lookout point to the Yellowstone canyon!

Interesting but other spots in Yellowstone are nicer.

Very cool to walk around here.

I hiked this at the end of August and there was a lot of snow. I almost got blown over by the wind at the top! It is steep the whole way up except for a few spots. If you are doing it, come prepared with water and layers.

This was an easy hike to begin a three day back country adventure for us. By accident, we timed it perfectly to arrive right before the geyser erupted, and it was beautiful. We didn’t bother with old faithful and from everything we heard, this was better anyway. I was certainly wowed by this experience! Our back country hike ended through this trail as well, so it was a great “almost home” marker for me, too

Hiked to the prismatic overlook, and then finished on this trail. Totaled about 10 miles. The imperial geyser was the highlight of the trip. Hike was pretty boring compared to other hikes, but was very easy. Worth seeing the geyser over the falls or prismatic.

I hiked this trail with my 50 year old mother. If she can do it, you can too. That being said there is a point about a mile in that the trail path got obscured. My mother and I ended up climbing the mountain off trail for a while until we met back up with it. We we're able to take the trail down the whole way. The view on top is beautiful, but make sure you're prepared with hiking equipment and a positive attitude.

Great hike just always crowded.

Beautiful views!!! We felt like we were on top of the world as we ate our lunch. There was snow, ice and mud on the trail making it tricky to get to the top. I suggest to go a little earlier in the season Did it with a 5,9,11,13, and 15 year old and 2 out of shape parents. The whole trip up and down took 5 hours.

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?

This is an easy boardwalk that offers lovely views. However, to really enjoy the Grand Prismatic Spring I’d suggest taking the overlook trail.

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!

Very nice and easy hike. Amazing views. One is the few still open in October.

Trail closed :(

Gorgeous waterfall. Very short walk. Very very very crowded.

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.
