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

Wouldn't really call this a hike. More of a simple walk. Still fun though.

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?

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!

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

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

Amazing, as is all of Yellowstone.

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.

A nice short walk.

best time was at 7:30am. no crowds

Very pretty and worth the steep climb back up. It’s switchback trail that depends 600 feet.

easy hike but not flowing well in middle of September

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

We took the overlook trail up. The switchbacks were tough. It was not very well marked at the top. We, luckily, found our way back to the trail to the falls. Other than that the trail was well maintained. The views were incredible. The falls were spectacular. Overall a fantastic hike.

More geysers. All unique

The geysers and pools are pure magic. Castle Geyser was definitely a favorite.

Such diversity in one park continues to inspire. The paintpots are beautiful and very entertaining to watch.

I personally enjoyed the beautiful pools of West Thumb even more than the Grand Prismatic area. It features beautiful views of Yellowstone Lake, and the pool depths and colors are other-worldly. The trail offers a brochure that talks about each feature that can either be returned or they ask for a dollar donation.
