Good walk.

Nice walk. Beautiful views.

Mammoth Hot Springs are definitely interesting and worth a look; the low rating is largely driven by the absurdity of including the upper terrace as a "trail" when it is nothing but a road just wide enough for cars. Do NOT hike the upper terrace; if you wish to see those features, do that loop by car as the Parks Service clearly intends. The lower terrace has a series of pedestrian boardwalks and stairs that facilitate an interesting walkabout to view the beautiful travertine formations around the hot springs. There are a couple of placards describing the basic process by which these types of features formed, but there is almost no information provided as to what explains their various names and histories. Bottom line: this is an easy stop that is a worthwhile roadside attraction but is not a "trail" or a "hike" per se, and All Trails should know better than to mark a narrow car-only road (upper terrace) as a "trail."

a short boardwalk stroll to very beautiful thermal pools
get there before it warms up to see the steam wafting through the air

Woooo! It's so cool to see the fall just beside it. I'm shocked by the beauty and sound. Fortunately I also see rainbow here. Two rainbows!

A good place to see the lower fall and the canyon. The canyon is so beautiful, colorful, and different from any other canyons I have ever seen.

A interesting place. Different from other places in Yellowstone. One of my favorite.

It's colorful and beautiful here.

The fall is beautiful. Be sure to walk to the end of the trail to obtain a good visual angel to see the fall.

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.

When I went there it's raining and too much fog. I think it will be better in a sunny day. Besides, I didn't see the fish cone. I think it is related to the water level in the lake.

Pretty stunning to see up close. Great views. Then onto Fort Yellowstone which was also interesting. Lots of people but it is what it is. Ran into a lot of road construction which was frustrating.

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”.

The hike down was such a delight! A stream cascades down the canyon, and it was so refreshing to be greeted by the sound of water at the various turns of the switchback. It’s very peaceful, especially with the limited people on this trail. It was the first stop I felt we could “enjoy the view” rather than feel we needed to take our photo and move on!

Work on the way back up, but a bonus to be away from crowds.

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

Hey it’s Old Faithful!! You can’t go to Yellowstone and not see Old Faithful. Super crowded of course since visitor center and other educational bdlgs are here plus gift shop etc but now I can say I saw it

The views were phenomenal!

Great short hike to get a better view of the lower falls. Climbing back up was a bit hard, but it was a good workout.

Quick little 45 minute hike with a nice view

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

Nice little walk close to the lake and around the geyers. Very crowded, though (I was there when it rained heavily, and there were still so many people).

We drove around the upper terrace, jumping out at a few spots, then hiked the lower loop. So amazingly beautiful and like nothing else I’ve ever seen. Apparently this backdrop was used as Spock’s home of Vulcan in one of the Star Trek movies. This was our second day of exploring in Yellowstone. Take time to read all the signs and pay up to take a trail map at each area to get the most out of your visit.

Great views!

This isn't really a hiking trail, you drive right up to the basalt columns. I am a geologist so I rate it high because you can get right up to the columns.

How can you not love this place? It ranges from a beach area with shallow water for kids, to deeper water and rapids to can jump into up above.

I did trail in July 2017. Interesting views and unique perspective of the falls. Stairs, stairs and more stairs.

Hidden gym! One of my favorites in Yellowstone! Easy trail and
Beautiful!
