Did this hike a little too close to dusk. Passed plenty of people who said they had not seen much in the way of wildlife, but our experience was much different. We saw a herd of elk running through a nearby meadow and a badger scuttling across the trail right in front of us. We did not make it to the ponds, however, because we came across a brown bear about 2.5 miles in. It was on the trail 25 yards ahead of us before we ever saw it, and we did not have bear spray. We immediately hiked up the ridge to distance ourselves, and luckily the ol' bear continued on its way without giving us a second thought. We turned around and went back out the way we came. Fantastic scenery and wildlife, but be smarter than I was!
(1) Do not start a hike at dusk. (2) Carry bear spray. (3) Hike in a group of three or more. (4) Follow any other guidelines provided by park personnel.

Freaking awesome...crowded but not too bad...being a little bit off the road helps.

Classic...not a necessarily a hike but it’s super amazing still.

The lake behind the geysers made it that much more interesting...one of my favorite geyser basins.

Beautiful but very crowded

I took an additional trail above the grand prismatic...not a soul on the trail but us. Gorgeous overlook of the pools without all of the traffic on the east path to the pools.

There is a new trail that veers to the left of the old boardwalk. The old boardwalk has been removed and the area is being rehabbed.

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

Fun spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature!

Off the beaten path, but way better than any waterfall you’ll see on an easy access trail in the park.

I went down to 2H2. It was just a hike out and back. I saw nobody after crossing the Yellowstone river. Nice for whom loves quiet hike.

What a wonderful secluded hike to a hidden gem in Yellowstone. A beautiful delicate looking Falls. Don’t miss the Great Prismatic Spring overlook on your way!

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

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.

Hiked this trail to the overlook. Wow! it's a gorgeous view. I'd call it a moderate hike. We are seniors in our 60's, and felt like it gave us a little challenge. We packed our lunch and sat at the overlook eating on a beautiful fall afternoon. The only disappointment we had was the lack of wildlife. Even from the overlook, we could see no wildlife. But, that's the way it's been the entire trip. Where are all the animals? Wolves taking care of them?

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

Did this trail 2 weeks ago. Didnt see any wildlife. The ponds were beautiful. Only saw 2 groups of people at the beginning and end of the trail.

My body is in pain, but a good kind of pain. Well worth it for the awesome view of the waterfall! Just know that it is more than 7.4 miles, my Fitbit had it at just under 24,000 steps!

Such a pretty magical place. Absolute must if you go to Yellowstone.

Loved this hike! To the falls is a easy hike. We decided to do the loop after we got to the falls and saw how amazing it was. We went to the falls first and I want to think going to the falls first is the best route. But when we came down the other side it looked more gradual and had switchbacks. Our favorite hike in the park that we done this weekend.

Quick and fun. Path well established and perfect for photo ops.

Hiked trail mid sept’18. Easily accessible from west thumb parking area and across main park road. Offers nice view of Yellowstone lake from high point. Proceeded with caution due to bear warning signs and scat and was relieved to be joined by another hiking couple for what was a pleasant 90 min 2 mile hike through meadow and light forest with mild hills. Lots of room up top for a snack and pictures.

Trail closed, bear activity. 9/26/18

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.

A nice short walk.
