easy hike but not flowing well in middle of September

Easy quick hike, says it’s a mile but really 3/4 of a mile. Bridge was rotting with several areas broken thru boardwalk . These broken areas clearly visible when walking on the boardwalk. As with many trials in Yellowstone it is not well maintained. We saw a small herd of elk eating down by the creek. Short and sweet, good for all levels. There are some stairs to the falls but there is a hand rail and this area appears to be in good repair.

Easy hike, great for young kids. I think there are better waterfall hikes in the park that are just as easy.

Beautiful and quick trail if you're en route from Tower Falls area to Mammoth. Quick hike to Wraith Falls, Enjoy a small spray of water, and all the chipmunks everywhere! Shaded trail for most of the way.

Nice waterfall and worth getting out of the car real quick but I would see other things first like brink of lower falls. Easy and quick hike for sure.

Too many other options. The trail nor the falls are interesting.

Waterfall was gorgeous and it's an easy hike to get there! Not many people get out of their vehicles in Yellowstone, so get out and explore.

This was an easy hike to a nice waterfall. Great hike if you want to make an easy day or tag on to other hikes.
