Won’t call it a hike, but great views from the overview locations 600’ and 1200’ down a sidewalk from the parking lot.

Easy boardwalk hike. Parking can be horrendous! Kids loved the trail and we loved the “new” hot springs and mud pots.

Open for swimming! Great place, plenty of safe areas for kids and fun areas for adults. Recommend bringing a life vest as the currents are strong in the deep areas. A fun activity for strong swimmers is to head up stream and float down through the canyons twists and turns.

quick offshoot from the road to stretch the legs and marvel how a redwood is in the park!

Easy descent down to the falls or down the short trail off to the right to get down near the river. Beautiful views of both the falls and the river. Tends to be a little crowded throughout the day but overall incredible up close sights to see

It’s supper easy. The view isn’t a great as the lower falls in my opinion. But it’s still beautiful.

This was a nice walk. A lot of people complain about the smell. It’s not pleasant by any means but It didn’t bother me. Maybe I just happen to be there on decent afternoon. There was several bison on the trail to see as well. And I mean up and close.

Another beautiful sight at Yellowstone. Kid friendly and short enough to keep my four year old from getting tired and fussy.

Short & very easy (flat). Worth the time to see. Good hangout for marmots too.

Nothing too exciting. Steep switchbacks on the way back up and way too many tourists climbing under the barricades and signs posted stay on trail. Lots of disrespectful families which is disappointing

can't beat the view for such a short easy hike!

Closed with fines for swimming, water not warm.

how could you review this any less than 5 stars? I could envision having to hike 5 miles and this being the reward at the end. It is outstanding and unique. i ended up doing the loop trail to the falls after this and both were great.

Nice easy trail with several views but noticed some people not paying attention and nearly pushed some people off the boardwalk. Crowded so go early.

It's raining and there wasn't a soul on this trail! it was quick and easy. the water is flowing!

This was wonderful to stand above a powerful waterfall. The lower falls are bigger, but I felt the water rushing past this one was faster because the canyon is a bit narrower. At the bottom of the falls, it kicks water and spray high in the air and makes a rainbow if the sun is out.

A very easy hike with a light ascent. The lake is very beautiful with Lilly pads. I was half surprised a moose didn't await us at the top. The reason this only gets 2 stars is because the trail just ends on one side of the lake, no option to go further or all the way around it. Another reason was because of all the mosquitos! Large stagnant water=mosquitos. Be prepared, bring mosquito repellant, you will need it.

Easy hike, great for young kids. I think there are better waterfall hikes in the park that are just as easy.
