Beautiful hike! Longer than what it says here. Can't get far without a Bug spray though, the mosquitoes will suck you dry!

Did this with our 5 and 10 yo, along with their 70+ grandmother. Great trail from a former road. If you miss the eruption, there is plenty to do and explore until the next.

We got there about 5 minutes after it finished and spent the intervening 2:30 exploring the river, unmarked hot springs, and having lunch. The greatest benefit was the opportunity to watch the geyser’s entire eruption sequence.

Afterwards we visited Old Faithful, and the kids were less than impressed after watching Lone Star.

Great trail, very scenic.

Beautiful as always. Have hiked this trail since I was a little girl. Take the time to jaunt across the bridge and up to the cave-very worth it. Then come back down and hang a left to hike up out of the canyon. The trail will actually eventually lead you to FSR 196 near Bear Lodge (grab lunch!) But that’s about shy of 11 miles one way.

Enjoyed this hike. Kids were able to do this hike well too.

Great workout in and out of the canyon!

Love taking this walk on Sundays. Kids bring their bikes and we leisurely walk our way around. Lots of green shaded grass, a couple playground sets to stop at, a fun bridge to cross and bathrooms available

Great hike! There's a steady incline all the way up. The trail itself is an old gravel road, so it's very easy to follow. Awesome views from the fire lookout at the summit! There's a "visitor center" there with pit toilets and labelled sketched maps so you can distinguish different landmarks you can see from the lookout. We saw goats, marmots, and chipmunks. The wind was pretty intense at the top! Took us about 2.5hrs roundtrip at a relaxed pace and about 15min spent at the summit.

Pretty tough incline all the way up. But a spectacular view from the top. Bring some bug spray as we were swarmed all the way up and down the trail.

i went here on a whim today and as my first and only hike in wyoming. great choice. it was well worth the hike as the falls area is absolutely amazing. the water wasn’t cold and i only wish i had brought my swimsuit. just be ready for some rock scrambling and bring plenty of water

Did this today!! 2.4 in and out. Would recommend doing the hike in from the parking lot rather than Howard Eaton trail. The biting flies on Howard Eaton were TERRIBLE!!! This way they weren’t awful.

Lone Star erupted right at 3:30pm. It was totally worth sitting and waiting for an hour and a half. Amazing geyser!!!

Great hike! We parked where FR 222 intersects with FR 16, there are two stream crossings and some terrain we weren’t sure we could get over with 2wd. My GPS said 3.9 miles round trip even with hiking .85 miles up FR 222 to the trailhead. Forest service roads and trailhead were well marked.

Beautiful hike! Unfortunately, Bannon Trail (the main trail up to the peak) was closed today, so we opted to take the chairlift to the summit and continue to Mary’s Saddle on foot. It was incredibly gorgeous scenery with stellar views of the Tetons.

Great trail, no crowds, lots of shady spots

Loved the hike and the views from the summit are amazing.

TH is located in the middle of a science/lab space within Yellowstone. service road makes for a nice meandering 2 miles in and a great 2 miles out. The hike down (and subsequently back up) to the falls is strenuous... but well worth it. one of the most amazing waterfalls I've ever seen!

Truly a hidden gem! There are AMAZING views from start to finish. Once you start to summit, the Tetons will slowly emerge into a breathtaking view. We started at Grand Targhee Ski/Bike park on the Bannock Trail (which is a hike only trail) by the Dreamcatcher Ski Lift. It is 6.4 miles round trip. Definitely wear boots because it gets a bit rocky and unstable at the top - maybe pack layers as well because it's significantly more windy once you summit.

Absolutely loved this hike!! The views on the way up to the summit are surreal and the view at the top are so worth the hike! Loved this hike!

This was a really wonderful hike, went on a Friday mid-day in June we had the trail completely to ourselves. It was the perfect difficulty four our terrier. The "hidden falls" at the end is gorgeous.

Wonderful hike! The trail is a dirty track all the way up. Beautiful sites along the way, out of the trees the whole time, wildflowers line the path, and just overall a really great hike. This is a pretty popular one so be prepared to see some groups. Up pretty high so be aware of altitude and take it a little slower than you’re used to!

An easier hike, but a pretty long one. The elevation gain is gradual and with a fair number of ups and downs. The wildflowers couldn’t have been better. Absolutely amazing. Also a wonderful mix of terrain including meadows, forests, and some sage brush. Not much wildlife on this day. Singing birds the whole way, a couple of marmots, and we heard one pika.

About 4 miles into the hike there is a major landslide that has wiped out the trail completely and totally. We used GPS and the AllTrails app to cross the landslide and bush hack a bit to find the trail on the other side. There were some horse/game trails that were helpful. We went with our large dog and he was able to navigate everything but it would be difficult for some people and animals to navigate the downfall and rocky areas.

The falls were beautiful and well worth the hike. We took a path toward the end that you don’t have to and probably shouldn’t. Instead of going up the hill, follow the less worm path left along the water toward the falls. Much much easier than going up and over. The lower, flat path is the way we took back from the falls to the main trail.

At least at this time of year there are lots of creeks and streams to cross so be ready for wet feet.
We started from the trailhead at 12:30PM and got back at 6:30PM, including stopping for lunch and other stops for pictures and sight seeing. We never lost the sun behind the cliffs the whole time. The temp was mid 60s with a breeze and it was perfect.

Highly recommended!

It was a great hike! Definitely recommend!

Amazing views and great trail. Be ready for a very wet hike if you go in June. I had to wade 2+ miles through 6 inch water. It was definitely worth it but it might be better later in the summer.

Okay for a little hike, especially if you’ve never seen the neat rocks. It’s not marked very well, so allow more time than you think you’ll need in case you get a little lost. Super buggy in the middle of summer, so wear bug repellent.

Nice easy walk beautiful views

A beautiful loop, I recommend you take a lunch and hang out on some rocks to really enjoy it. Saw hundreds of flowering opuntia. This was fun to hike but I’ll have to bring a bike next time bc it looks like a mtn biker’s dream!

My favorite for after dinner hikes and bike rides. 15 minutes away from Laramie, this is a fairly easy trail that is easy to get to.

hiked 6/21/18. I clocked 11.5 miles. we walked clockwise doing the 6.5 miles first. trail was flooded in places. took shoes and socks off twice on the way to the lake but was dry after that. gorgeous views the whole way. watch out for falling trees if windy. trail is obvious.

This is a hiking trail, NOT a mountain biking trail. If hiking, I would have rated it much higher. The scenery was very pretty. We were here in the middle of June, wear bug spray.

The trail is a loop but it was really easy to loose the trail. We met another group who had also lost the trail and had just given up.
