Just hiked in past the suspension bridge down to the river's edge (where one would need to cross to continue the trail) and returned. I think it turned out to be 5 or 6 miles total. Lovely hike, saw many birds, wildflowers, and views of the river from different vantage points. The suspension bridge is obviously very cool as well.

Excellent trail we only walked in 5 miles. The roaring creek and suspension bridge is amazing.

Did this hike my first day in the mountains not being used to the altitude- BIG mistake! As one other reviewer mentioned, this trail has many switch backs and what goes down, must come back up.
It is an absolutely gorgeous hike down to the suspension bridge and the river, but if you are even borderline beginner, this is not the hike for you as the way back is quite strenuous. Bring water and there was a multitude of bear scat along the way so bear spray would be a good idea.

I did a section of this trail, down to the suspension bridge. The trail starts out with a lot of switchbacks, going downhill. Quite a bit to see along the trail, and as with most trails in Yellowstone, you have a great chance to see wildlife. The suspension bridge is really great, and it is cool to walk across the Yellowstone river and see the beauty of the area. What goes down, must come up.....so if you hiked down to the river, you must climb back out using the switchbacks. Its a rough climb, but well worth it. A great trail, even if you only do a few miles on it.

Beautiful hike. There were tons of wild flowers blooming. The suspension bridge was sturdy and the view off the bridge was great. There were lots of mosquitos wish we had brought bug spray would have kept us from being devoured. I will do this again as we cut it short because of the mosquitos.
