Added this on after we walked South rim to artists point. Nice trail, didn't see many people but we did see mosquitoes at the lake.

Nicely well demarcated trail. There are trees with orange trail markers. Trailhead easy to find. Started clockwise by the bathrooms at Mammoth Springs. There’s a little elevation gain and switchbacks but it’s not bad. Not many people. Be very bear aware. A family on the trail saw a grizzly. We didn’t see much wildlife, an elk and lots of squirrels. Saw no beavers but we did see several ponds. Lots of tall grass/plants. Recommend bug spray and pants. We ended at the hotel grounds with elk relaxing on the grass. It is a moderate hike. Elevation gain just over 800 feet. Liked the hike because it was not crowded at all.

Good one for small kids. The only reason this gets 4 instead of 3 is for the insane wildflowers right now.

Pack bug spray!!!! The hike back was completely miserable! But can’t beat only seeing three groups of people in 15 miles!

Oh my gosh this trail was really amazing! I hike pretty often and this one is definitely difficult. Pretty steep incline the whole way. It says 4.7 miles but altogether my app told me I went 7.3 and it definitely felt that long so be aware. There is a point where you get to an area with lots of snow with a great view and I think some people stop there and head back down, but we went even higher and walked through snow and up another steep trail of rocks. It seems a little wrong but it gets you up there and the view is panoramic and breathtaking! VERY windy. There is a little alcove or rocks up there to protect you from the wind.

This hike is not for the beginner or out-or-shape. It was a 2.4 mi constant climb on the way up. The first half of the climb in the trees is standard trail, the second half of the climb past the false summit is mostly scree climbing. The views are spectacular and 100% worth it, but it was a haul to get there for me. The wind is strong and cold when you get to the top, windbreaker at minimum needed for the top. The way down is pretty much falling down the steep trail you ascended. Tread carefully to care for your ankles and knees as it's easy to go fast while stopping your descent. I would do it again for sure, the views are worth every bit of the hike!

I love to hike in YNP. Someone told me to get app. This app have this as an easy hike, maybe I am just fat and out of shape. But this is Definitely a huff and puff hike. Natural Bridge is an easy hike. It’s very up-and-down so many rocks on the trail. But worth it but not easy.

My favorite geyser basin in the park. Beautiful springs, interesting geologic features, lake views. Easy, short stroll on a boardwalk.

I did this trail on 07/02/20. It was beautiful but not maintained. after 2 miles it became tuff to follow as tracing marks kind of vanished.

We started early and we were able to see bison, elk, and cranes. As a warning we saw pretty fresh wolf and bear prints, bring bear spray. All in all a beautiful hike!

Basically couldn’t find the trail. Asked a Ranger that was nearby, she tried her best to help but no luck

Starting very early to avoid the social distancing insensitive crowds that seem to be attracted to Yellowstone, we modified the loop as indicated in the trail description by walking out along the valley trail to Point Sublime. We then returned to the trailhead via a short wooded section an a very nice seldom described thermal area. After having to bypass a lone bull bison, we finished the hike with a black bear sighting. All in all a very nice morning!

We climbed Bunsen peak upon our arrival in the park after a 5 hour drive. What a great way to unwind and stretch our legs to start our pre 4th of July visit to the park. It’s a simple climb with moderate effort and a nice view waiting for you at the top. It’s a great one for the kids as well!

Artist Point to Point Sublime is about 2 miles round trip. As others have noted, the end point is disappointing, compared to the great views along the way. The trail weaves in and out a little but most of it is close to the rim of the canyon. Don’t let your kiddos get near the edge!

If you enter from the South this is the perfect introduction to the power this place has.

Amazing trail with beautiful wild flowers and amazing views! I strongly suggest hiking with 3 or more people! On our way up trail 2 people warned us about a black bear sighting off in the distance so we we’re all ready on edge. (We never saw the black bear) We made sure to make noise throughout the trail and we had our bear spray ready! We went on this trail around early afternoon and we only saw one other couple the whole time. Eventually after the second pond we hiked up a little hill and made a right and a grizzly was sitting about 20-30 feet away from us! Luckily it heard us coming so we didn’t surprise it, but we were able to slowly walk away from it without agitating it. Amazing hike but bear spray is a must and I suggest hiking in a larger group than 2!

Great family hike! Very easy hike and gorgeous lake, meadows, mountain views. The cutthroat were spawning just upstream from the headwaters.

I think the map is wrong, the section of trail east of ribbon lake doesn’t seem to exist. But its easy to just go to ribbon lake, then backtrack a minute and take the trail that bypasses the section that is out.

I hiked out to camp at site 4R1. The first half mile or so you have incredible views of the canyon and river. Then you turn into the forest toward the lake; that part of the hike is nice, and the lake is nice, but there are probably nicer forest hikes to nicer lakes elsewhere in Yellowstone. Also the mosquitoes were so horrendous that as soon as I got to the site I immediately hid in my tent to get away from them, so I didn't even really get to enjoy the lakeside view. On my hike out in the morning the bugs were non-existent, so I recommend either sticking to the canyon edge or only going basically at dawn.

Nice short hike. Most of it is exposed so it's best early or late. Great spot to see black bears especially early in the morning.

I hiked a little over halfway into this trail to campsite 1A1. This section of the trail is pretty much a flat walk through the prairie - amazing wildflowers the whole way! Super secluded too; there was a handful of cars at the trailhead but I didn't see a single person my whole hike. The campsite has elk antlers and skeletons around on the ground, which was pretty cool. This was also the only backcountry hike/campsite I stayed at in Yellowstone where the mosquitoes didn't absolutely terrorize me!
