Did this a couple of years back. Amazing hike with amazing views at the top. Not an easy hike so very rewarding once completed.

Bizarre is the only word for this place...not like the rest of Yellowstone at all. Definitely recommend.

Classic...not a necessarily a hike but it’s super amazing still.

The lake behind the geysers made it that much more interesting...one of my favorite geyser basins.

Watching Old Faithful from the side or back away from the small winter crowd was surreal, allows you to feel and hear the geyser. Pretty stream and access to many more thermal features. Yellowstone is awesome in the winter!

Loved it! Way back up is tough but well worth the view at the bottom!

This short jaunt was like walking out onto an alien planet. The trees give way to a landscape you won’t see anywhere else on Earth.

Can you say you’ve been to Yellowstone if you haven’t been on this short walkabout?

There is a new trail that veers to the left of the old boardwalk. The old boardwalk has been removed and the area is being rehabbed.

Real cool spot to check out some hot springs

Do the full trail!!!! We saw so many people turn around at the falls but we kept going to the top of the mountain and it was SOOO worth it. Probably my favorite hike we did in Yellowstone! The view of all the geysers steaming in September was like something I’ll probably never see again. Amazinggggg!!!!

Interesting trail. Got to see old faithful blow twice! So many interesting hot springs and geysers here.

Interesting but other spots in Yellowstone are nicer.

We did not catch any fish here but we saw a lot of buffalo, deer and an antelope! The river is so beautiful.

We didn’t go too far but the river is beautiful! We did not catch any fish here but did see several big ones :)

Very cool to walk around here.

I hiked this at the end of August and there was a lot of snow. I almost got blown over by the wind at the top! It is steep the whole way up except for a few spots. If you are doing it, come prepared with water and layers.

I hiked this trail with my 50 year old mother. If she can do it, you can too. That being said there is a point about a mile in that the trail path got obscured. My mother and I ended up climbing the mountain off trail for a while until we met back up with it. We we're able to take the trail down the whole way. The view on top is beautiful, but make sure you're prepared with hiking equipment and a positive attitude.

This trail was worth it! I recorded one mile of total hiking, and that took about forty five minutes. This trail is very steep and is switchbacks the whole way, so I highly recommend wearing sturdy athletic or hiking shoes. The trail is pretty broad; it can handle two way traffic. And the falls are so gorgeous. The sound of the water rushing off of the falls is so soothing. You can take breathtaking pictures. You can also see the Upper Falls, although not as well. Definitely an awesome adventure!

Easy easy a fun quick hike

So many switch backs but a great little walk to see the waterfall.

Great hike just always crowded.

Hiked this trail to the overlook. Wow! it's a gorgeous view. I'd call it a moderate hike. We are seniors in our 60's, and felt like it gave us a little challenge. We packed our lunch and sat at the overlook eating on a beautiful fall afternoon. The only disappointment we had was the lack of wildlife. Even from the overlook, we could see no wildlife. But, that's the way it's been the entire trip. Where are all the animals? Wolves taking care of them?

Beautiful lake

My body is in pain, but a good kind of pain. Well worth it for the awesome view of the waterfall! Just know that it is more than 7.4 miles, my Fitbit had it at just under 24,000 steps!

Fun loop trail to see old faithful and connect to see other Geysers.

lots of steps

Cold morning created a beautiful steam-filled, icy wonderland. Very easy walk but worth staying a few minutes at each thermal feature to listen and observe. Have to say Vixen was my favorite - nice small geyser, spurting away and then just stopped, starting up again in a minute or so. Amazing.
