Must do hike while in Yellowstone. Stunning view of Artists Point on 1/2 of the hike and hot springs on the the other 1/2.

Amazing view and the majority of the trail is wheelchair/stroller accessible until the end stairs, but beautiful views before that point. Easy, short, beautiful.

Fun trail. Started at Uncle Toms trail parking lot towards artists point and on towards point sublime. Took the turn towards lily pond and on to clear lake. Along the way there are geysers and mud pots which were fun to see. Clear lake was beautiful. Finally the trail passes through a large meadow with beautiful vistas. I feel it may have been more fun the other way around but still an enjoyable easy hike for the whole family.

We were going to skip this trail but glad we didnt! It is not much of a hike, but it was surprisingly beautiful. Even though it was crowded, the canyon views were dramatic and very different than other hikes I made. It can be a quick stop that you should not miss.

After Red Rock Point (highly recommended!) getting us closest to the lower falls on the north rim, the Brink of the Lower Falls trail was closed for repair, so we went on the Brink of the Upper Falls trail (the river is extremely powerful and wild diving over the upper cliffs), onto the South Rim road, taking the trails to Artist Point (beautiful palette of reds, whites and yellows in the sunlight, one of most famous views in park) and Uncle Tom’s trail to the lower falls. Great combination of stops.
