Freaking awesome...crowded but not too bad...being a little bit off the road helps.

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.

Watching Old Faithful from the side or back away from the small winter crowd was surreal, allows you to feel and hear the geyser. Pretty stream and access to many more thermal features. Yellowstone is awesome in the winter!

Beautiful but very crowded

Super easy, quick hike, and if that’s what you’re looking for it’s great. Awesome view of the Teton range.

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

I took an additional trail above the grand prismatic...not a soul on the trail but us. Gorgeous overlook of the pools without all of the traffic on the east path to the pools.

Can you say you’ve been to Yellowstone if you haven’t been on this short walkabout?

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.

Breathtaking. Never seen anything so naturally beautiful but DOES NOT HAVE A BATHROOM! Haha only complaint I have. Haha

Very cool to walk around here.

What a wonderful secluded hike to a hidden gem in Yellowstone. A beautiful delicate looking Falls. Don’t miss the Great Prismatic Spring overlook on your way!

Great hike just always crowded.

Neat views from the point.

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?

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

One of my all time favorite hikes! Make sure to plan accordingly for river crossings, you’ll want to be able to take of long layers/have shorts for wading. Water shoes are a must! Scout hole provides a perfect resting place before venturing back out.

Trail closed :(

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

Trail closed for bear activity. 9/26/18

A nice short walk.

road closed middle end of September

Be careful on the road section. Some drivers aren’t considerate of walkers

My wife and I did the loop yesterday. I used a website I found that shows the last time Old Faithful and the Grand erupted and an estimate for next eruption. We watched Old Faithful erupt twice; once from right beside it and once from the observation trail. The observation trail is much better vantage point. after that, we began walking the trail. I knew Grand was supposed to erupt sometime between 1 pm and 3 pm with my best estimate at 2 pm. We were approaching the Grand at 155 pm and it started to erupt!!!! I was like a little kid, partially because I lucked out on my estimate to be there and partially because the eruption was utterly amazing...much better than Old Faithful and longer. The crowd was amazed as well. The loop is a nice relaxing walk that just about anyone can do.
