Explore the most popular Mountain Biking 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.

Great views all the way up but the trail is not very interesting...it’s basically a fire road. Take Dunraven Pass if it’s open.

Awesome easy hike away from the crowds. We checked with the rangers at old faithful for predictions and had to wait about 30 minutes to see the full eruption. Saw some elk and bison by the river while we waited. There were 5 of us watching. So good we are going back again in September.

Gorgeous views the WHOLE way, with the only downside being quite a bit of wind. Wildflowers still present, and sighted some bighorn sheep and marmots. Bring a jacket - it's chilly at the top but SO worth it.

Started at the Bunsen Peak Trailhead. The trail starts along a flat jeep trail for a few miles and then turns right to the Osprey Falls trail. Take your trekking poles because of a few areas of loose gravel, all downhill via switchbacks to the base of Sheepeater Canyon to the Falls. Beautiful place to rest and eat lunch/snack. Take plenty of water....maybe a little challenging to get close enough to the water to filter. The trail is out and back and can be pretty strenuous hiking back out. It is worth it, however. We hiked it around 11 am - 3 pm in mid-August and only saw a handful of other hikers.

Great trail for hiking and biking. Lone Star eruption wonderful. Peaceful area to sit while waiting for eruption

I would highly recommend. Path is even and mostly paved. Geyser is really cool.

great hike. we only saw one other person the entire time. we went on a Saturday and started around 715 am. the parking is kinda funny but there is a sign that says "trailhead parking" (if no one is blocking it). you start at a residential area in the park. the first 2.1 miles are an old road. nice and wide. be loud for bears. then you get to the turnoff for the falls and it starts easy and then goes down switchbacks (which you have to climb back up). hike is not hard or technical. falls are beautiful. we enjoyed the solitude, which is so rare in national parks on weekends!

Awesome hike!

Very easy trail with lots of shade, some mosquitoes (we did it on a sunny day on 8/6), nice view of the river and the geyser at the end. Kid friendly. We did not time our hike well and we missed the main eruption by 30 minutes. But no big deal, we found a spot in the shade and waited about 45 minutes to see a nice 2 minutes eruption. The very good point is that there was no crowd, we saw like 15 people on the way.

Thinking we where not going to see much just a creator after coming a cross a couple that was there waiting and we where told it may be disappointing. . Got there around 1:15 and it started what a wonderful experience and hike family loved it . Took many picture . Highly recommended

service road used to hike up makes it fairly easy other than grade climb. beautiful view, goats.

great hike with the kids it's a 2.8 mile walk to the top on a gravel rd. awesome views at top

Great Trail

Did this trail in June of 2017. it was 50 degrees and misty. Great hike, didn't see anyone until we were halfway out. Nice and easy going in, but the last 1.4 miles down the canyon to the falls can be tricky and a real slog coming back out. But the views and being at the bottom of the falls is worth it.

Incredible views! Did this hike with my wife and six kids. Definitely difficult up hill climb but so worth it.

easy, level hike. we arrived in time to see the geyser go off at 11.05am on 7/24. spectacular sight, one that lasted a full 25mins. would recommend trying to time the walk to see the eruption as otherwise the payoff may be a little underwhelming.

Absolutely beautiful falls, I would highly recomend a walking stick the way down is a narrow slippery trail but the end of the hike is definitely worth it.

Park at Fountain Flats to avoid fighting for a parking spot at Fairy Falls trailhead. Path is wide and flat, following the river most of the way to the Grand Prismatic Overlook

One of the coolest geysers in the park. Lots of water, steam, and whistling. Goes off approximately every 3 hours. We made it a loop by connecting to Howard Eaton trail.

My favorite hike in Yellowstone! Definitely a moderate hike with some portions being challenging and others not so much. The first 2.8 miles of the hike is completely uphill with switchbacks and then back down again. The views are so worth it tho. It took my friend and I about 3 hours to do it (maybe more?) but we weren’t in a hurry and the observation deck at the top is awesome! We also saw a big herd of big horned sheep which was amazing. There are NO WATER options on this hike so if you don’t hike much or are not as conditioned as you’d like be sure you bring enough water! 3 miles going uphill will make you thirsty.
