This trail is closed probably due to snow

Great trail, walked from the parking lot. Had a variety of sceneries. Snow, rocks, cool trails, trees, bridges, live animals, and water falls. First time hiking this trail. Worth the hike to the top. Great view of the lake. Was about 7 miles but easy. Even saw a moose on the way back.

We did this as a family of 17 last summer with 9 kids ages 7-14 and it was fantastic!! It’s wooded a good part of the way, so not overly sunny but bring your really good mosquito spray! Between Fairy Falls and Imperial geyser was a big field where buffalo had clearly been recently (but none when we were there) so there was fresh-ish scat that was a BIG hit with all of the kids. There were mud pots as well. Highly recommend!

Great trail, pretty flat for the most part. There was a little bit of snow and mud on the trail in some places but nothing too bad.

Very nice hike through the nortwest region of Yellowstone. We stopped by Cache lake on the way and camped the night just past the river. Water was cold and knee deep in late July so plan accordingly, then hiked the peak early morning and back the next day.

Did this hike in late July. Long but the falls and hot springs are worth it. Bugs were bad that time of year, so anticipate that.

What an awesome trail! Completed this with a group of friends back in August 2019. Definitely took a good chuck of the day given our breaks and the weather near the summit, but it was completely worth it. Started our hike around 5 am near Mammoth Hot Springs and was met with some overgrowth hanging on the trail. The dew got our legs pretty wet in the beginning so it would be great to wear gaiters or have an extra pair of socks on deck. The scrambling section near the top had some loose rocks and seemed a little sketch at some points, but was a fun challenge. A great trail to do while you’re in the park for a few days!

Gosh am I ever thankful the USPS made this whole trail ADA accessible.

It was windy and I counted 22 baseball caps and random jackets. scarves, etc in the springs. Smelled like feet but I like feet so *shrugs* would revisit

When in Rome... yes just walk the mile and go see the thing. Then treat yourself to a huckleberry lollipop in the government-subsidized gift shop.

some of the best natural features in the continental US. highly recommend.

some of the lake is steaming from the underground volcano

Great trail and even better Instagram photos. Hiking is all about social media validation anyways.

Love this hike, but much prefer coming up the other side of the mountain (chittenden)

Last hiked June 2018. Awesome hike, fairly easy. We did get a huge windstorm on our way back that had us terrified with several of the old, burned pine trees falling all around us.

It's an easy hike, but it's long and can be boring.

I’ve been coming back here for the past 4yrs and it never gets old! Super easy walk

Amazing hike but it will kick your butt!! Totally worth it!!! Beauty is all around throughout the hike cheers

This was a beautiful trail for a couple of gals from NY. We saw wildlife and amazing views! There were some fires in Yellowstone, so the smoke blocked a bit of our view, but on clear days you can see other mountain ranges. Just amazing. I have walked the streets of Rome, hopped through the Greek Isles, swam in the Caribbean and shopped on the Champs Elysees in Paris, but Northern Wyoming is the most beautiful place I've ever visited! Mt. Washburn was amazing!

Visited 10/19... was amazing to witness old faithful and the geysers were beautiful. However.... sooooooo many disrespectful people. Witnessed way too many people throw their trash on the ground, and cigarette butts wherever. Obviously this isn’t the parks fault, but seeing this made me super annoyed Anyways, I wouldn’t consider it a “hike” but it was a super easy and relaxed walk!
