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

Love this trail. Has picnic areas, benches, bridges, babbling river & waterfall.

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

best time was at 7:30am. no crowds

Easy, dog friendly trail.

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

This trail is great. Very short but it has some decent elevation changes so it keeps your heart pumping. The trail itself is very well groomed and taken care of. The Gallatin river runs right next to the trail the entire time and there are plenty of spots where you can climb down and enjoy the water. The falls at the end are gorgeous and if you walk down the stone steps to the base of the falls there's a great swimming pool there and even a small area to do some rock climbing if thats your thing. I definitely recommend this one!

Crowded, touristy and lots of bathers in the water at the end. Eh.

This place was beautiful. There’s a lot of people but overall it’s amazing.

Great trail and beautiful scenery..

Great easy short trail to a nice waterfall.

Great Trail for beginners with amazing views.

This loop seems to have been developed and none existent.

Did not find the shorter loop and ended up on the bigger 12 mile hike, so had to turn around. Really beautiful, but wish we could have found the 2.3 mile loop. Encountered dirt bikes, horseback riders (from Jake’s Ranch), and hikers. All very polite of each other’s space. Gorgeous views!! Only giving 4 stars because we couldn’t find the shorter hike.

Actually I don't think this fall is as good as many other falls in Yellowstone, while the trail is very short and won't consume many time.

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.

A well maintained path down to a beautiful waterfall. Short and not difficult. Can be very busy, so go early morning or late afternoon. There are multiple benches and bridges and picnic tables along the way.

Beautiful hike, the switchbacks can be difficult for little ones, but the trail is very well maintained. And the waterfall is breathtaking!

A walk not a hike! Expect to not go at your pace as your walking with many others. However; it leads you to the end destination of a “soak”.

Beautiful quick hike

This is a great walk / hike for all ages and all skill levels. The falls are beautiful and easily accessible. Perfect for kids.

Only had 2-3 hours of time left for a hike. This was perfect. J has time to relax at the falls. Although more traffic than I prefer it was enjoyable.

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!

Short easy hike with great view of the waterfall at the end.

Packed with people but beautiful views! We went on a weekend so maybe a weekday would be better. Wide trails, easy hiking.
