Real cool spot to check out some hot springs

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

Beautiful lookout point to the Yellowstone canyon!

Interesting but other spots in Yellowstone are nicer.

We did not catch any fish here but we saw a lot of buffalo, deer and an antelope! The river is so beautiful.

We didn’t go too far but the river is beautiful! We did not catch any fish here but did see several big ones :)

Very cool to walk around here.

Fun spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature!

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.

This was a very easy and relatively short hike. My mother and I hiked to the lookout and turned around to avoid having to walk back on the road. We saw some wildlife, but I would recommend hiking in the morning to see more. There were several other groups who were hiking this trail at the same time we were which were loud and definitely were scaring away animals.

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.

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!

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.

Start from Bunsen Peak area then work your way down. Catch a ride back up if your legs are hurting.

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

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.

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.

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