Even with a little rain this is a great trail!

Enjoyable trail that wasn't very strenuous. We got a little confused a few times so this app was helpful staying on the trail. It was best going clockwise on the loop as someone suggested before, because it was more gradual. That is not to say that it was all easy, because there were some climbs. Nice falls though. Not the most beautiful I've ever seen, but a nice hike.

Great short hike with beautiful views from the overlook. If you're short on energy or time, you can easily just go out and back to the falls.

Trail is very easy and short so it's worth the hike for a really pretty view. You don't have to do the whole loop either if you're trying to conserve time you can just hike 1 mile to the falls and turn around to cut some time off.

Nice trail after the boardwalk.

Nice moderate level hike. I recommend going around loop clockwise for a more gradual incline and steeper decline. Water level was a little low in early September so the waterfall was not quite as impressive, but still some very nice views of the fall and the park.

Went here with family years ago and loved it! Loved hiking to the falls! Saw a marmot on our hike, too!

This was a nice easy hike to the falls. Hiking to the observation is steep but not to bad. If you time is right you can see old faithful blow from the observation area. Just amazing.

Not a place to be in a lightning storm, but views of geyser basin great otherwise. And of course the waterfall is cool as are most in Yellowstone.

This trail is one of the most beautiful and easiest trail I have ever seen in this park. Flat and easy up till the mountain, love it!

Nice easy walk, and the falls are beautiful. If you're short on time, skip this one, and hike to Fairy Falls instead.
