Beautiful trail with amazing views. Hiked parts of it in July 2017. You can get right next to the head of Yellowstone falls and/or take some great photos at a distance as well. Not for small children.

Four stars because of the awesome scenery! Trail was closed in 2 places, so was unable to hike the entire thing. Pretty easy hike with lots of people.

Very short and easy. If you take the one-way drive you can stop at multiple points along the canyon rim and have amazing views at each one. I would recommend going down one of the trails that actually descends into the canyon some because that is where the best views are.

Sections closed due to construction. I would wait until it reopens.
