Be careful on the road section. Some drivers aren’t considerate of walkers

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

Just like I dreamed it to be. Gorgeous Yellowstone Falls.

I personally enjoyed the beautiful pools of West Thumb even more than the Grand Prismatic area. It features beautiful views of Yellowstone Lake, and the pool depths and colors are other-worldly. The trail offers a brochure that talks about each feature that can either be returned or they ask for a dollar donation.

Go at sunset to get a great view of Grand Prismatic and alpenglow covered mountains. The new overlook trail is a steep but short hike.

Amazing view but very hard to enjoy with the crowd. Lots of rude foreigners with no consideration of others at all. Glad to see it from that vantage point once but will never do it again because of the crowd.

Awesome trail with some climbing required. We added the overlook to the trail with awesome views of the basin which made the whole trip 3.4miles. Falls were stunning.

it is just beautiful. easy walk. sept. very cold in morning

great view.

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

nice walk along the lake. can be quiet windy but beautiful with the pools.

great payoff with minimal effort

stick to the lower falls

interesting views exclusive to northern yellowstone. a little too tourist-y and crowded for my taste.

nice hike you can access via biscuit basin. you'll reach a fork in the trail- go left for the shorter route (0.6 miles more, i think) or go straight for the longer route (1.7 miles more).

Beautiful

Awesome view.

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

We did the loop to include observation point.
Great views from the top and we spent a long time just enjoying the outlook area. We climbed down to the falls which were nice. We went down river from the falls and soaked our feet in the river while we enjoyed the morning sun. A nice hike but can get steep at times. The trail is not well maintained on the observation climb with loose gravel and some slippery spots this should be a moderate level hike.
Overall a nice hike with falls and views

It's not as large as the lower fall but still deserve to come to see.

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.

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

Very amazing! Come early to avoid too many people. When I went there, there is so much fog that I cannot see my friend near me. Interesting!

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