Explore the most popular nature trips trails in Wyoming with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This trail has a tremendous amount of blow down once you get off the Cliff Creek trail. It needs trail maintenance before it is back to being a five star trail. Beautiful area. Very buggy in mid-July. One stream crossing.

Super rewarding hike. Killer views without much effort. My bud and I went light and stopped on the way home from a trip. Took 3 hrs on the nose seems most average 5 or so though. Highly recommend!

Starts out pretty steep but wide enough and not too hard to walk up. Once you get to the creek it’s a nice spot to stop and wet down your arms and neck to cool off in the summer. From that point on it is very mellow. Gets a little narrow in some spots with vegetation encroaching on the trail but for the most part the trees and foliage provide a nice amount of shade. I only made it about 5 miles in before turning around to catch the shuttle back. Several great canyon clearings and heading the roar of the cascades as you approach the louder sections is a great motivator.

I could imagine it being a pain to come back down the steep part if it is crowded with people coming up from the shuttle. As long as you track your progress and keep time it seemed nice to go out later in the day and catch one of the shuttles going back around 6pm (last one was at 7pm) but don’t cut it too close unless you’re prepared to hike a couple hours back to the visitor center without taking the boat.

This is a challenging trail due to the descent to the Yellowstone River 1500 feet! You have to go up it too! The surface on those switchbacks is loose and adds to the fun. The plateau and views of the Yellowstone are very cool as is the remote nature of this trail. We saw bison, pronghorn, plenty of bear sign, and otters!

Incredible

A FANTASTIC day hike for those who want to see the try beauty of the Tetons. Hiked this on July 12th for my 50th bday with 2 families age ranged from 14-53. Very well maintained with a nice constant grade. Took 3 hours at a leisurely pace up to the lakes and 2 hours down stopping to look for animals. Saw several including marmots , dear and a baby bear on the lower part. Didn’t start until 10 am so shroud have packed a little more water or a filter to take some for the lake. A single hiking pole also would have helped for the down hill.

Took my wife and two boys (7+9) up the cascade canyon trail to the big waterfall- seemed like about 4 miles in one way. Took the Jenny lake ferry - $45 for 2 adults/2 kids, round trip. 10 min boat trip, every 15 min or so. Holds 40 people. You can skip the ferry, but 2.5 mi hike. Last ferry leaves 7pm. The hiking took about 5 hrs round trip, lots of breaks and lunch. Weather sunny, low 80’s. Mosquitoes in the shaded areas, but not bad. The first mile is tough uphill climb, but levels off after that. Used about 6 quarts of water/drink w 4 of us. The creek the trail follows is absolutely gorgeous! You can put your feet in it roughly halfway up the trail. Boys were very tired at the end. Jenny lake is beautiful against the mountains. There is a small boat ramp to the left of the main ramp, about 1/4 mike hike away where you can park also.

Incredible views, definitely worth the challenge. The hike is miss-rated on all trails and should be rated hard. Bring lots of water and solid hiking shoes. Like the reviews say below me, the trail is not well marked, but manageable. Stay to the left of both bolder fields on the way up. The lake is unbelievable though and I'd highly recommend the trail.

Fantastic views from the top and definitely worth the hike. We took the face trail up and it was intense. Lots of elevation gain quickly and lots of loose gravel that can slow you down. But, beautiful wildflowers and views the whole way. The last thousand or so feet there is a rocky trail that will require a little bit of scrambling but it’s not terribly difficult. Slow and steady wins here. We took the face trail back down again as we had a late start and it is about two miles shorter than huckleberry trail. There’s a nice creek just near the parking lot with icy cold water that you can dip into and cool off. We are pretty experienced hikers and it took us about 6 hours round trip.

Awesome hike!! We had only planned to do Cascade canyon, but when we reached the fork, we didn’t quite feel like that was a good location to turn back, so we decided to head towards the lake. About 0.5 miles after the fork, the trail opened up and the views of the Tetons were just unbelievable. It was one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. There were some campsites in the area, next time i would definitely stay overnight just to enjoy the view for longer. The lake was partly frozen, but we dipped our feet in. On the way out, we saw a grizzly mom and cup on the trail. There were enough people around to be safe. Regardless, I would highly recommend to bring bear spray.

Easy and flat. Unfortunately had to cut it short about two miles from the point because of beer sighting.

Far too crowded when I visited and slightly worn. The boardwalk needs renovations and there were unattended children running amuck. It's ok for strolling but tourists have torn the place up.

Amazingly beautiful nature! We enjoyed slowly meandering to take photographs.

Stunningly beautiful!

Very pretty - also great if you’re killing time waiting for Old Faithful!

Won’t call it a hike, but great views from the overview locations 600’ and 1200’ down a sidewalk from the parking lot.

Easy boardwalk hike. Parking can be horrendous! Kids loved the trail and we loved the “new” hot springs and mud pots.

Easy hike to a great view from the brand new viewing platform. Didn’t have time to explore Fairy Falls with our 5 and 10 yo’s and their 70+ grandmother, but will in the future.

Open for swimming! Great place, plenty of safe areas for kids and fun areas for adults. Recommend bringing a life vest as the currents are strong in the deep areas. A fun activity for strong swimmers is to head up stream and float down through the canyons twists and turns.

Beautiful long day hike. Straightforward trail, some signage. Loads of wildflowers in July. Some minor boggy areas.

Did It one day, no ice axe or crampons needed, but I’ll still say you need them so there’s no one on the trail again for the next group.

We were disappointed to find that this trail is no longer dog friendly. We only made it about 0.3 tenths of a mile till it became Yellowstone National Park land.

Fabulous hike with great views!!

Great short, all around hike that includes so much of Yellowstone scenery. Only down side was construction on the trail so had to change course a bit and hike on road to pick up the trail again. Otherwise super hike for all abilities.

Great all around hike but definitely plan for a longer hike. Lots of wild life and bring bear spray. Beautiful views of the Yellowstone River.

Closures really put a damper on our hike but we were still able to see all 3 falls from afar! Gorgeous views the whole hike.

Almost gave the trail 4 stars due to all the closures that interrupted our hike because there were no signs warning us of them til we got to the closure— but the views were so breathtaking it’s still worth 5 stars to me. This trail was the highlight of my entire Yellowstone trip, 10/10 would do again.

Great views of Old Faithful all around if you stand back some from the crowds along the edges. Make sure to get there early if you want the best spot/view

Super family friendly and easy walk around these gorgeous, vibrant hot springs. Great view of Yellowstone Lake as well, definitely worth a stop.

If you are in GTNP for a few days, there are plenty of better trails to explore. However, it's flat and easy compared to the rest. Taking the trail around Jenny Lake would be a better option.
