It was so fun and pretty. Had an awesome time and definitely recommend

Great sight and if right on time gets you to peak in a fair amount of time

The sights make this a 5 Star. The path is very easy crowded typically and I doesn’t take too much effort normally is not rate as a 5 Star due to those limits but the thermo sights are special

Did both north and south rim. Did this after hike on Mt washborn in the morning and was a fantastic day moderate rating may be fair but also
Points a bit to the easier side in spots. Fun and most anyone can enjoy this

It takes effort and determination. But is certainly worth it. Do not try if you haven’t trained. But if you are in moderate condition take your time and go for it. Amazing

An absolute must do trail

Beautiful. And is closer to easy than moderate. Plenty of change but plenty flat

It sure why the moderate rating. It’s easy fun and of coarse a must see if you have not done before

Beautiful easy hike underwater thermo features pretty not super crowded when I was there. Avoid times of due north or me wind

Great views of the Yellowstone Canyon on this. While there is the trail that can be walked in its entirety, there are also parking spots at various places so you can make this work however you please in terms of whether you want to hike it or just stop at the designated viewpoints. I went as the sun was setting and it was incredibly beautiful.

Yes, Yellowstone is incredibly busy and there will be people everywhere at the geyser basin trails, but in my opinion, it is totally worth dealing with the crowds. The Grand Prismatic is an absolutely beautiful geological wonder. The boardwalk is cool but the overlook is even better in my opinion.

Very nice hike with a great view over the lake from the top. We went in mid-June and the snow was waist-deep near the top. Lots of melt made it very, very muddy so plan accordingly depending time of year. Carry bear pepper spray!

Just do it. It's beautiful, easy and underwater geysers are just plain cool. Plus---the Colors!

I have done this Mystic Falls loop three different times of the summer. Mid-to-late June is the best b/c the snow melt is awesome; the water is roaring; and there are small waterfalls that are very nice that are gone by mid-July and thereafter. Every time I go back to YNP, this hike is a Must. A repeat.

Like much of Yellowstone it feels like another planet, simply amazing.

Great hike and took 9&11 year old. They did fine but it did get steep at times. Great view at top. Bear Spray is recommended. We did not have any encounters but they are common in this trail from what we heard.

This trail is very nice because it takes you to the top of Yellowstone’s most famous waterfall. Looking down you can truly take in the power of the falls. This path is good for all ages and is very easy. Also if you are in this part of Yellowstone I recommend you go to Artists Point for more great views of the falls.

We got to the trailhead around sunrise, which I recommend, as we were the first ones to summit but passed many people on the way down. With a good push this hike is very rewarding and worth the effort. We saw mule deer and Pika at the top.

What a view! Wow... a bunch of stairs! Totally worth the slow stair adventure on the way back up to the trail. Don't worry about having to rest between flights. There are random levels to rest and catch your breath, if need be.

Do this hike!! Everyone goes to the boardwalk but this beats the boardwalk all day, definitely worth your time!

Such an interesting hike with lots of geological features!!

I cried it is so pretty. I am a sucker for waterfalls, this is mother nature at her best.

Went on a perfect overcast day and there was not too many people for Yellowstone. Was even able to get parking in mid day.

Interesting but a bit too smelly. Nice information if
You have a guide who is passionate about the area.
I enjoyed it with Wildland Trekking.

I didn’t hike the trail —we only went to the touristy section where you can see Inspiration point and the canyon. It was amazing. So beautiful. Probably one of the prettiest places in Yellowstone.

Grateful our Hiking group took the time to see this even though was w little crowded. Go early for fewer crowds.

Pretty much a must do if visiting Yellowstone for the first time to sightsee, but wouldn’t consider this a traditional hike by trail. Expect A LOT of people. Not sure why this is rated moderate. Maybe the smell? Pretty much just a walk on the boardwalk the park created for people wanting to see geysers.

Went in late September and got there late so didn’t do the entire trail but will go back. Even at that time of year it was pretty crowded to start but thinned our as you got onto the trails.

Went in early June. Easy and beautiful. I live nearby and this is on the list for in town guests.

Not very busy on Black Friday. Was very icy in some areas, but enjoyable on a beautiful sunny day!
