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 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.

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

Amazing, as is all of Yellowstone.

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

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.

dragon's mouth spring was the neatest feature here. the mud pots at artists paint pots are cuter, lol.

i surprisingly enjoyed this more than i thought i would, lol. i started out at the old faithful area so maybe by that time i was already geyser'd out since i found the paint pots so bubbly cute! i'd suggest going clockwise (hang to the left) to save the best (mud pots) for last.

So many mud pots. It's my first time to see the boiling mud. Very cute.

It's colorful and beautiful here.

A interesting hike. Lots of mud pots. One of the advantage of this trail is that there will not be so many visitor as other places in Yellowstone. You can get peace here.

The grand Grand Prismatic Spring is certainly one of the most deserve to see in the Yellowstone. However, It's too large to see the whole prism besides it. I suggest to hike both this trail and the other trail going to the mountain besides the prism and see it from above.

A good choice to see the geysers. Lots of geysers along the trail. Remember to plan enough time for this trail. You will stay more time then you expect.

Trail is nicely maintained. There is not a lot to see- rather uneventful. Mosquito’s bad at end of lake.

This our first stop and exposure to thermal activity. This was cool and worth the stop but it was crowded

Quick walk in a geyser area. But it's very crowded and parking can take a while.

Beautiful and well maintained trail. We turned around so we did not have to walk on the highway otherwise it was nice and easy trail.

This was our first loop / home at Yellowstone, an excellent way to start. Relatively short and super informative, many interesting features to see.

everything is beautiful. it's all on a different scale of beauty

Had to scramble into the woods to let a herd of bison pass. The falls are spectacular.

A MUST!!!!! Overwhelmingly in awe! Try to see Beehive Geysers...it's the best

Very pretty - also great if you’re killing time waiting for Old Faithful!

Easy boardwalk hike. Parking can be horrendous! Kids loved the trail and we loved the “new” hot springs and mud pots.

started before 9 so had trail to ourselves most of the time (so nice given how busy it can get at midway!).. easy walk to falls and 2 geysers.. go up the hill for great view of imperial geyser..

we did the loop and walked through meadow back to the fountain trail - saw 3 bison and just kept following the orange square guides - felt very isolated in wide open meadows and geysers so was great although started getting pretty hot.. walk back on fountain flats path to midway parking lot was uneventful.. stopped for lunch at firehole river...
