    You share part of the trail with horses so there can be a lot of poop on the trail. We started at the petrified tree and went around lake where we encountered a heavy steam of hikers headed to the tree. The climb down to the lodge was very nice switch backs, shaded with lots of pines. More hikers coming up exhausted from climb up from lodge. We really did not like coming out of the trail into a resort with people everywhere eating their breakfast and shopping the general store. That was very odd and not our idea of hiking. The loop pretty much disappears here and we forged our own way back into the woods and found the trail again. It was grown over poorly marked and we navigated thru high weeds before the trail went straight up the mountain. We thought we were on the wrong trail until we saw one other group doing the loop in the opposite direction. Very poorly maintained trail.
    The views are amazing but this is a hard vertical climb with a lot of direct sun exposure, make sure your hydrated and fit for a hard climb.
    Overall the views of the valley and surrounding mountains were very nice.

    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.

    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

    Falls were okay. We started at bike trail from fountain flat drive making it just under 10 miles. Bike trail open and mostly flat only one set of bikers passed us on our hike. Saw some bison off in the distance and one elk. Bike trail offered great prairie views and was gravel with some old broken pavement spots. From bike rack into falls was poorly maintained trail with some trash along the way. Heavy traffic and typical tourist racing to reach distinction, snap their selfie and push they way back out. If you can time it right the falls are nice but if your traveling with younger children skip the extra miles of the adding the bike trail.
