Went in July, late afternoon, so it wasn't too crowded. Good views, but hard to see the array of colors in Grand Prismatic from this vantage point.

Did this back in September at sunrise and the boardwalk was extremely slippery. Amazed more people don't fall off it. Initially the springs were covered in fog so we went and did the overlook hike and came back after it cleared up some. Started to get very crowded even early in the morning.

Short hike up to a great overlook of Grand Prismatic Spring. The start is along the Firehole River which was quite pretty around sunrise.

If you're short on time and only have enough to see the absolute best of Yellowstone - do not miss this! The view from this trail is far more incredible than the view from the boardwalk that takes you closer to the spring. I did this trail while traveling across the country in my converted minivan. Feel free to follow my instagram for photos of this hike and many more @myraninavan

8/2020 Stunning - so interesting! The hot air coming off of the spring felt strange with the cool wind.

Definitely not my fave. Too crowded. Grand Prismatic is better from the overlook. The other springs are beautiful, and it’s worth doing once, but I wouldn’t do it again.

Awesome hike on snow-covered trails (with some icy / slushy spots) on the last day of the season. Fairy Falls is covered with lots of beautiful icicles; buffalos chilling in the meadows a few yards off the trail; and the Imperial Geyser is very active. Well worth the trek in the cold!

When it's very cold, all you can see is the steam coming out of it. Still very majestic though.

Can be very crowded, so get there early to get a parking spot. Nice easy walk and we'll worth the time.

The is a busy short loop, but I think it’s worth seeing Grand from here and the top to get both perspectives.

The trail was fairly dusty and exposed but lined with some smaller pools here and there.

Favorite trail in Yellowstone so far. The trail itself is not that exciting unless there are bison in the area (did happen at dusk once for me!), but the view of Prismatic is enchanting. It'll be partially blocked by steam most likely, but with a little wind you can get great views. The colors really are gorgeous in the sun.

Gorgeous easy hike, gravel trail the whole time. Beginning is more scenic but the falls are 100% worth it

Not much to see in terms of color today due to low temps & resulting steam . But... still fun.

Nice overlook of nearby geysers on the way in. Not too scenic of a walk but worth the waterfall at the end. Easy, reasonable length trails.
