It was a spectacular hike ❤️. By far my fave.

Trail is impassible without snow shoes and ice picks even in June. If you plan to hike this trail wait until late July August (I found this out the hard way)

Great trail! I hiked it in early June and the traffic was already fairly heavy but the views are worth it. If you slip the fairy ride and take the trail around the lake you will be much more likely to encounter bear and moose as I did as the moose ponds trail is connected to this trail.

Great trail! I hiked the trail in early June and saw mother bear and her cubs as well as a bull moose.

Hiked this trail with my girlfriend on Sept 7th. I am 64 yrs young, but live at sea level (St. Pete,FL)
the first 3-4 miles not so bad, but once you leave the maintained trail it gets much tougher.
That combined with the lack of oxygen made me consider quitting several times. Luckily for me,
my girlfriend is younger and in better hiking shape, so I toughed it out. It was the best pay-off to a hike
that I have ever experienced. The view was spectacular. The sun on the lake and the reflection of the sky made it seem that you were in a painting. As with many places we have been, none of the pictures, as beautiful as they are, can quite hold up to being there. It was very hard to leave.

I hiked this at the end of August and there was a lot of snow. I almost got blown over by the wind at the top! It is steep the whole way up except for a few spots. If you are doing it, come prepared with water and layers.

did the hike 4th of july weekend. amazing hike!! worth the switchbacks and boulder field scramble. the view at the top was amazing. the lake was so cool! take plenty of water! we all depleted our water on the way up and refilled with our filters at the lake. we arrived early but not early enough and had to park further out. about 10 miles up and back to the car. we did see a mom and cub on our way up. they wandered off into the field away from us so definitely bring bear spray, never know!

This was an easy hike to begin a three day back country adventure for us. By accident, we timed it perfectly to arrive right before the geyser erupted, and it was beautiful. We didn’t bother with old faithful and from everything we heard, this was better anyway. I was certainly wowed by this experience! Our back country hike ended through this trail as well, so it was a great “almost home” marker for me, too

We loved this hike. Still can’t believe we were there ❤️

I hiked from Jenny lake halfway through the cayon and back with my mother. There was moderate foot traffic until the boat dock. The waterfall, wildflowers, and wildlife were awesome. We stopped by a stream and saw a fox chasing a beaver. Great hike that totaled about 9 miles round-trip.

Hiked to the prismatic overlook, and then finished on this trail. Totaled about 10 miles. The imperial geyser was the highlight of the trip. Hike was pretty boring compared to other hikes, but was very easy. Worth seeing the geyser over the falls or prismatic.

This was a very easy and relatively short hike. My mother and I hiked to the lookout and turned around to avoid having to walk back on the road. We saw some wildlife, but I would recommend hiking in the morning to see more. There were several other groups who were hiking this trail at the same time we were which were loud and definitely were scaring away animals.

I hiked this trail with my 50 year old mother. If she can do it, you can too. That being said there is a point about a mile in that the trail path got obscured. My mother and I ended up climbing the mountain off trail for a while until we met back up with it. We we're able to take the trail down the whole way. The view on top is beautiful, but make sure you're prepared with hiking equipment and a positive attitude.

This trail was worth it! I recorded one mile of total hiking, and that took about forty five minutes. This trail is very steep and is switchbacks the whole way, so I highly recommend wearing sturdy athletic or hiking shoes. The trail is pretty broad; it can handle two way traffic. And the falls are so gorgeous. The sound of the water rushing off of the falls is so soothing. You can take breathtaking pictures. You can also see the Upper Falls, although not as well. Definitely an awesome adventure!

I don't usually review trails, but this one is pretty great! We went a little later, so it wasn't as busy. But we got to a point in the trail where a moose and her baby were on the trail. We had to wander off the trail but it was an awesome experience. The scenery is also beautiful. It's 4 miles but it's very casual.

If you want to enjoy the solitude in this busy Park, this is the one you should try.

Beautiful. May take longer than you think to complete the hike. Route-finding can be difficult in the boulder section and may not be appropriate for children, older folks, or disabled. A stunning annual run for us with access to the Middle/Grand saddle.

Beautiful hike—very good trail for a little sweat and great views.

Was exactly like the descriptions said. We started out around 09:00 and took 5 hours to get to top. I’m very out of shape now days and refused not to give up until we made it. My wife waited on me lots going up but kept me motivated. The views going up and at the top are good enough motivation.

What a wonderful secluded hike to a hidden gem in Yellowstone. A beautiful delicate looking Falls. Don’t miss the Great Prismatic Spring overlook on your way!

Car pullout with small walking path overlooking the falls. Not really a trail, but a beautiful view!

Very neat thermal features on an easy boardwalk loop.

Easy easy a fun quick hike

We hiked this trail in order to summit Disappointment Peak. Before beginning the last leg of our summit, I took a refreshing (and frigid) swim in Amphitheater Lake. I believe we counted 18 switchbacks. Both lakes were breathtaking!

Great 5-6 day hike! definately cross creeks and a marsh so water shoes. I kept my keens on for miles rather than keep switching. the camp sites are great. You can also take Trail Creek to the Thorofare and to Mountain Creek if late July and you can wade across the upper-ford of the Yellowstone River or a sweet camp site before crossing. Met a healthy grizzly just before Thorofare on the trail. He exited and went around 40 yards out. Can also catch a trail down to the South Boundary Trail. I did it in early October and snow one night.

So many switch backs but a great little walk to see the waterfall.

Start from Bunsen Peak area then work your way down. Catch a ride back up if your legs are hurting.
