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

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

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.

I just walked to see the geysers under the mountain and didn't go to see the fall. I think the geysers here are even more beautiful than those in upper geysers.

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.

Easy walking trail though you might get a bit winded. We walked down to lower falls but could also see the upper falls. Fantastic view!! Worth it. Lower falls has a platform right at the falls so you can be at the edge and see the water go over, super cool!

Amazing scenery. So many of the waterfall trails are closed off right now that we did that one- not to be missed!
We came back and took the hike to clear lake which is nice and you get to see some geothermal areas and clear lake is lovely. We backtracked back to Artists point since Uncle Tom’s is still under construction-
Parking lot was jammed but doable with many people only staying 15 minutes to catch the view.

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.

The part of the trail that goes by Uncle Tom’s trail is closed right now. So parking is tricky and you’ll have to either turn and go back instead of looping or walk down the road instead.

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.

I recommend doing the overlook first and then looping back to the falls. The first half is strenuous for folks who aren’t in stellar shape. However, the views are worth it.

I loved this hike!! We did the whole loop, hiking to the overlook first. The switchbacks to the overlook are strenuous, but the views are stunning! We continued onto the beautiful falls from there. Along the entire loop we saw so many variety of wildflowers! More that 15 varieties! I was in awe! We hiked this the second week in July. This trail met all my expectations for a high Mountain View, a beautiful falls, and lovely mountain wildflowers!!

Quick little 45 minute hike with a nice view

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 took the loop towards the right. it's pretty steep. be careful at the overlook losing the trail... if you keep trying to follow the ridge, you'll still see footprints for a bit but the loop actually cuts back very shortly once you reach the top. Ironically, the greenness and the non-western rolling hills-esque look combined with the steam (as if it were from a factory!), and the new growth trees smaller sized trees makes it look like Connecticut or upstate New York. In other words, not super impressive. The trail itself is quite nice and well maintained however, and the view of the falls coming down is better than towards the base of them. They're very nice falls. The remainder of the trail back along the creek is very nice too. then of.course the most.unique feature is that it contains biscuit Basin! Also it's true, this is a great way to escape crowds. it was astounding the line of cars and line to park at several of the surrounding areas. it's also true there's a ton of mosquitoes. load up on bugspray!

Had to scramble into the woods to let a herd of bison pass. The falls are spectacular.

Great hike in Yellowstone!

Great views of the river all along the trail.

beautiful falls, lots of mosquitoes and a decently busy hike so going early in the morning or later in the evening is probably best

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

Far too crowded when I visited and slightly worn. The boardwalk needs renovations and there were unattended children running amuck. It's ok for strolling but tourists have torn the place up.

Great short, all around hike that includes so much of Yellowstone scenery. Only down side was construction on the trail so had to change course a bit and hike on road to pick up the trail again. Otherwise super hike for all abilities.

Closures really put a damper on our hike but we were still able to see all 3 falls from afar! Gorgeous views the whole hike.

Almost gave the trail 4 stars due to all the closures that interrupted our hike because there were no signs warning us of them til we got to the closure— but the views were so breathtaking it’s still worth 5 stars to me. This trail was the highlight of my entire Yellowstone trip, 10/10 would do again.

Super family friendly and easy walk around these gorgeous, vibrant hot springs. Great view of Yellowstone Lake as well, definitely worth a stop.

started before 9 so had trail to ourselves most of the time (so nice given how busy it can get at midway!).. easy walk to falls and 2 geysers.. go up the hill for great view of imperial geyser..

we did the loop and walked through meadow back to the fountain trail - saw 3 bison and just kept following the orange square guides - felt very isolated in wide open meadows and geysers so was great although started getting pretty hot.. walk back on fountain flats path to midway parking lot was uneventful.. stopped for lunch at firehole river...

get there before 9 as parking lot turns into a tourist mess.. easy walk to the point but come back via clear lake - turns into a 10km walk near mud pots, beautiful lake view and views into Hayden Valley with the bison...

I merged this trail with point sublime, and view into Hayden Valley and doubled back instead of doing the loop to get full experience - nice walk and suprisingly quiet given the number of people at artist point.

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

We walked from the back of canyon village, south on the trail east of sunbeam and walked along the rim and down to red rock point. It was a great walk and the right amount for our 9 and 7 year old. We saw a sleeping bison in canyon village car park on the way and then a bull elk in the lodge car park in the way back. The views of the waterfall and the canyon were fabulous.
