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

Nice, relaxing trail. Most of it in dense forest but still neat. Be VERY bear aware. We got to the beach and found fresh Grizzly cub tracks in the wet sand. Come to find out this area is home to Raspberry the bear and her cub.

dragon's mouth spring was the neatest feature here. the mud pots at artists paint pots are cuter, lol.

great payoff with minimal effort

stick to the lower falls

Easy quick hike, says it’s a mile but really 3/4 of a mile. Bridge was rotting with several areas broken thru boardwalk . These broken areas clearly visible when walking on the boardwalk. As with many trials in Yellowstone it is not well maintained. We saw a small herd of elk eating down by the creek. Short and sweet, good for all levels. There are some stairs to the falls but there is a hand rail and this area appears to be in good repair.

So many mud pots. It's my first time to see the boiling mud. Very cute.

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.

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.

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

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

This was our first loop / home at Yellowstone, an excellent way to start. Relatively short and super informative, many interesting features to see.

A grand old redwood in Wyoming? Steps away from your car. 3+

everything is beautiful. it's all on a different scale of beauty

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.

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.
