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

After doing shorter hikes in Yellowstone we decided to push ourselves to do something longer than 2 miles. So glad we did. Beautiful views of the lake and the mountains.

Fun loop trail to see old faithful and connect to see other Geysers.

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

Really enjoyed this short relatively flat hike after the previous days 18miler RT to Static Divide. great views and nice folk on the trail. cant fo wrong with this one at all

Really pretty. Did the trail with wife and three kids. First part, to Taggart Lake, was lead by a park ranger, which was awesome. Great variety of scenery along the trail, with fantastic views of Grand Teton throughout.

Great trail with great views the whole way! Was surprised by a grizzly on the trail about 15 yrds from us as we turned a corner about halfway from the inspiration point trailhead. Ended up driving to inspirational point.

Great easy walk on the boardwalk to see the geysers from different vantage points

Gorgeous view with a minimal walk and some stairs. Absolutely worth it!

Easy to moderate.

An absolutely beautiful hike entered around String Lake. Very minor elevation gain after the lake as you head into the mountainside. Go counterclockwise on this trail. Takes a few hours but the views are stunning. Great "in between" hike.

Easy, afternoon ramble through conifer forests to a glacial lake of aqua and blue. Do the trail going counter-clockwise - the elevation gain is much more gradual and you get rewarded instantly with a beautiful cascading creek flanked by golden birch trees. It is very windy on this trail, so bring a jacket - cool in the forest, blazing in the open fields. After leaving the lake, the hike takes you up to the summit of a butte/hill covered in pine trees. Get a glimpse of Taggart Lake from here - it's amazing. Continue on another 0.25 mile and you'll be rewarded with an expansive view of the park looking south. Once downhill, the trail becomes a means to an end (parking lot) - not a lot to see other than a flat plain and some dense pines. Def worth a few hours and great opportunity to take some great pictures. Enjoy!

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

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

If you like trails that allow you to be shaded from conifers, well trafficked, but sometimes rocky trails, refreshing streams and falls for a good .5 mile of a ~4 mile hike and vistas that include lakes and mountains, then this hike is for you. We hiked this after driving in from South Dakota and it was a perfect way to stretch our legs. The Fall colors are an added bonus. No wildlife, although the idea of bears kept me on alert!

Is quite crowded for most of it but the views are excellent.

Definitely add the Bradly Lake loop to get the beat views of Taggert Lake! So gorgeous!! Great views of the tetons and the water. We were pressed for time so cut our loop short and still had an amazing hike! Would definitely do again!!

loved it!

Nice trail with great views. Follows stream most of the way to the lake. Uphill and rocky but worth the trip.

Easy loop with a beautiful forest setting and great views of Lake Jackson and the Tetons. Hike out at sunset for great beach mountain pictures as the sun sets behind!

Best mountain trail I’ve ever been on.

Easy and nice view from the mountains. I'd suggest doing that along with amphitheater and delta lake. Try to be at the lake in the morning to not have the sun in the wrong direction

Cute little hike. I'd rather do this than the whole Jenny lake.

Very nice walk with wonderful views from the SE corner of the lake.

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