LAME. This is a hot springs / terrace graveyard. Everything is dormant. Don’t waste your time.

We went over two days! It was beautiful and well worth it. There were a crap ton of mesquitos at our campsite and the last mile and half to the falls. So bring bug spray!!

Parked at the General Store at bottom and walked to trailhead. From there its a good 2 miles straight up to the top. You actually follow what use to be a drivethru paved trail then meet back up with boardwalks on way back down. The place is dried up I thought and kind of a drag but the hike was a good burn and made it worth it. Seen some deer and marmots at top and buffalo dump so there is animal activity and not many people use this trail map so always keep looking.

Pretty trail along the river with a beautiful waterfall. Be bear aware. Bring a hat and bug repellent. A little crowded at the falls.

Beautiful hike. Down into the canyon with the creek all along the way. Not crowded. Hard to access trailhead by car but worth it for the views. A nice rest day hike.

Nice but totally crowded (Thursday). Lots of People are disrespectful (no mask, no distance) and I always had to hold our little one as she is not as quick as others. It is an absolute top 10

Nice Trail with lots of boardwalks, totally crowded (Friday afternoon). Not as impressive than other basins (e.g. Norris or West Thumb) The „stairs“ are only seen here.

You can wander for a long time on all these boardwalks seeing the different features left as the hot springs change with time.

This was one of the highlights of my Yellowstone trip. The views from the top were amazing. Didn't see many people on the second half of the trail. I recommend a clock wise loop you get a nice view of the falls for a while. Seems like if you wanted a longer hike at the top there is a path that takes you to Fairy Falls.

I loved this hike! Not too crowded, and you get a bonus of seeing the thermal area as you walk toward the trail. A bit rocky at the end but nothing very challenging. Stunning views. We went on a breezy day, so bugs weren’t an issue.

Worth the walk. There are Bear signs up everywhere. Stay vigilant and you will be fine. Take food for the little squirrels at the Falls. You will want to take them home as pets.

A beautiful hike, lots of wild flowers. We hiked counterclockwise from Fairy Falls to OD3/Firehole Falls. Mosquitoes followed us most of the way and made the campsite miserable (even with heavy duty bug spray and wearing all the clothing we brought). A very pretty campsite though, right next to a small waterfall. The hike from OD3 to Biscuit Basin was buggy til we dropped down to Mystic Falls.

Great hike! Not difficult, and the waterfall made the trip worthwhile.

Did this trail 7/9 at 6:45PM and took us 1hr 18 minutes. I am someone who easily gets bit a lot by mosquitoes so wore leggings and sprayed bug spray on top of my pants and still ended up with 13 bites on my legs alone. We brought our bear spray but didn’t end up needing it and didn’t see a bear or any signs of one. Made sure to talk loudly the entire hike and jogged a bit downhill to avoid getting bit by more mosquitoes. We went clockwise per recommendations from other hikers and I’m not sure how much of a difference it makes. Was a nice hike to do to see mystic falls and the basin overlook but my favorite part was the switchbacks going back down the falls with all the flowers along the trail.

Ok, let’s clear up a couple things before discussing the hike: 1) This should just be called Lava Creek Canyon Trail that leads you to The falls 2) If you call the ranger station, at least that’s what they call it, because that’s it’s name 3) Don’t start in the campground, start where the trailhead clearly begins as there is a sign and a trailhead marked just for you 4) If you are coming in from the North Entrance, the trail head is clearly marked with a sign on your left. 5) If you reach Mammoth Campgrounds (on your right), you have gone too far 6) Mammoth Campgrounds is currently closed, parking there and starting isn’t even an option Now the hike: It’s breathtaking. You drop into a canyon and follow the river where you will see tons of wildlife, amazing wildflowers and nature blossoming in every direction. We saw two people on the hike. One a runner who was there and then gone and a fly fisherman who wasn’t even on the trail. There is a awesome suspension walking bridge shortly after beginning that takes you over the river and it is just beautiful. In the beginning the hike is rolling hills but the last mile+ is uphill. Straight up hill. We just climbed an 11k peak last week and this was not a little jaunt in the park. You need a lot of water. Double what you think you need as that summer sun coupled with summer wind will hide just how dehydrated you really are. All trails posts this as approx 8.3 miles. We clocked it a touch over 9 round trip. I think the estimated time is a little on the embellished side of things. I am sure you can do it in 3.5 hours but let’s remember that you need to be watching out for wildlife and be on the lookout for Prairie Rattlers this time of year. I highly recommend a walking stick in the tall grass to tap the ground, rocks and bushes. All said, this is a fantastic hike, but not one I would recommend for the beginner or someone that hasn’t spent a little time prior to the hike at an altitude over 6k. The views are unrivaled and the falls at the end are a treat. Well not really the end, surprise...now you gotta hoof it back.

5 star if you go to Geyser. Geyser is no miss. Very few people travel and geothermal properties are amazing. Must also do overlook of Grand Prismatic.

Backpacked and camped on OD4. It's a very nice site, has a bear box. The hike itself is not difficult , but not much too see to do a loop. I would recommend to do waterfall to waterfall. Very pretty waterfalls though!

First section mountain biked 2.5 miles in from Bensen Parking lot. Trail was dry, wide, mixed with packed dirt and gravel. Slight elevation. Then hiked the remainder to falls, about 1.5 miles down switch backs, crawling over fallen tree trunks that blocked trail. Saw a Marmont, deer and mountain goats. Got to the falls and to take in the prize. Worth it. Hike back up was all reversed, switch backs out of canyon. Biked back. Only passed by a few people so this trail was not packed at all. We were the only ones when we got to the falls.
