Short hike including a lake, a meadow, and the ocean

Very beautiful hike. Great view easy terrain. The bridge is out on the west side of the trail and you have to cross the river on foot

It was so fun and pretty. Had an awesome time and definitely recommend

Nice trail diverse in forest, meadow, shoreline. Heard bears were in area so bring your spray and use common sense. Be prepared to scramble over fallen trees possible. Lots of fun and quick hike

Beautiful easy hike underwater thermo features pretty not super crowded when I was there. Avoid times of due north or me wind

Just do it. It's beautiful, easy and underwater geysers are just plain cool. Plus---the Colors!

Unbelievable sights. Very beautiful view of Yellowstone Lake.

Unique geothermal activity by the side of the lake gives it a different appeal.

Saw Elk at this interesting group of hot springs adjacent to the Yellowstone Lake

Very nice easy trail.

Awesome to stand right over the hot springs from the safety of a boardwalk. The water is so clear you almost can't tell its there. Then look up for the picture purfect lake!

Nice easy scenic secluded hike.

2016 great trail.

Nice basins and plenty to see, nested well against the Yellowstone Lake and some gorgeous colors and easy boardwalk make this an accommodating hike that rewards.

Easy trail with views of the lake as well

Great view.

Such a great loop! You need to stop here. Its a very interesting stop because of the lake as a backdrop. Makes for pretty pictures

An easy trail through a forest, meadow and lake front. The views were stunning. It was prime grizzly country with evidence that they were around, but we were grateful of the large guided tour not too far ahead of us. The trail was extremely easy for my husband and I who hike regularly, but also easy enough for an 8 yr old with us who doesn't hike. My older parents who don't hike struggled during the hike. We did see a bison by the small lake at the beginning of the trail, but we walked past him without consequence.

Easy hike. Lots of animals along the way. Saw lots of fresh bear scat near the lake. Make sure to have bear spray on you.

Easy loop around some amazing hot springs next to the lake. Beautiful must do. Great for kids and grandparents too.

Very easy walking on the boardwalks, incredible grouping of thermal features!

Easy. Boardwalk all the way but some of the prettiest views I think. Take a Ranger guided tour if you're a science geek like me! I learned a lot! Good for families and little ones who don't like to walk much I think. Enjoy!

introductive view of geyser basin.

Easy hike to some beautiful lake views. Lots of bear droppings, especially near the water, so be alert and prepared just in case. We had the trail nearly to ourselves, so this is a trail to seek out if you're sick of the crowds but still want to see something impressive.

This one was alright. Not the most interesting set of geysers.
