Explore the most popular no dogs trails in Yellowstone National Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Amazing views, saw chipmunks, and several foxes during hike. Mid June and much packed snow covered most of the path of upper trail making hiking very difficult in places, adding a nice thrill. Great hike!

I just thought this one was ok. There are crowds and a ton of switchbacks and felt like view was just ok. I'd recommend viewing falls at higher overlook off loop.

Pretty easy boardwalk to follow, interesting sights, restrooms less than desirable.

The boardwalks were nice. I liked that we could exit when needed. Saw a snake next to boardwalk. Several parking areas.

only recommend going if it is a clear day, we were disappointed we couldn't see color of spring and wished we had passed.

Nice easy trail with several views but noticed some people not paying attention and nearly pushed some people off the boardwalk. Crowded so go early.

hiked 6/21/18. I clocked 11.5 miles. we walked clockwise doing the 6.5 miles first. trail was flooded in places. took shoes and socks off twice on the way to the lake but was dry after that. gorgeous views the whole way. watch out for falling trees if windy. trail is obvious.

The hike is not entertaining nor scenic, but the waterfall at the end is definitely beautiful. The trail is very flat so most likely accessible to many. In addition it is open to the sun and can be very hot.

We did this trail on our visit to Old Faithful Geyser, at the same time taking in Black Sand Basin, Biscuit Basin and Mystic Falls trails. Amazing trail featuring the abundance of Geysers, Hot Springs, Fumeroles and many pools. Splendid sites , an amazing trip ... not to be missed!

A beautiful hike accessed from Biscuit Basin Geyser. We did the out & back trail to the falls. Stopped a while at the very pretty falls where we had some little squirrels come to visit. We then made our way back to Old Faithful via BIscuit Basin.

Great trail to see the south rim canyon without dealing with the larger crowds

I didn't get to complete any long or "hard" hikes due to time restraints (only in yS one day) but this was by far my favorite. great views, seclusion, a good workout, and plenty of pic ops. i was hesitant on doing the whole loop at first but I'm glad I went for it. it feeds off of that hot springs trail which is an extra bonus to start or end your journey.

Snowshoed out to Morning Glory in December and had the entire trail to ourselves, minus a few bison. One of the few times in the year when the area is empty, albeit -10 degrees.

Completed this trail in the winter when it was well below zero. No crowds and a few bison and coyotes in the area.

Probably my favorite short trail in the park. Remarkably beautiful switchback with a lot to see.

Remarkably beautiful shirt switchback trail with active small brook on one side and large river at the bottom.

We had to re-route a couple times because of bison. Amazing views and once you get past the first mile, we only saw two other people even on a sunny summer afternoon.

Great overall hike. We went right before Memorial day. Took us ~2 hours, from 9a-11a. Because we set out earlyish, we were the first folks up the mountain that day and could really enjoy the solitude. On the way down we passed ~20 people.

Ascending you can see the Golden Gate, and the terraces at Mammoth.

Most difficult part of the hike was the scree at the top. That said, boots (which we wore) or even tennis shoes should be fine.

If geothermal activity is what you are after, this is the most convenient hike there is in yellowstone. However, true hiking is more my preference (which is why I only give this 3 stars). We actually hiked cascade canyon in the Tetons the same day and it is no comparison (cascade wins in a landslide).

Probably wouldn't do it again, but the walk is easy.

this was 3.5 miles? I must have missed a lot. It's def worth checking out!

It's raining and there wasn't a soul on this trail! it was quick and easy. the water is flowing!

It's closed, under construction. Looks like it will be for a while

not a soul on the trail!

great trail with minimal elevation. we just hiked to the lake and back and clocked 6.4 miles. great views along the way as you walk through a pine Forest. slightly muddy but no water crossings. plenty of wildflowers

We started at trailhead near Undine falls. Hiked to get a closer view of falls about 1/2 mile

We started at the Wapiti TH and hiked to Clear Lake, then through the geothermal area, then up to Ribbon lake where we found a good spot to eat lunch. We hiked back the same way. Great trail through, forest, geothermal areas, meadows and beautiful lakes. It really lets you take in some of the varied terrains that YSNP has to offer without the crowds. Very quite, the bubbling of the mud pots and the calls of nearby elk were all we heard.

short pretty trail through dense pines to a Lilly pad-covered lake. lots of mosquitos, but fine with bug spray.
