Great place to snowshoe and get lost in the magic and solitude of the Park during winter! Went 11/30 and got a late start, about 2:15pm, so only did a small portion of the trail, out and back.

Fun to bring the family. The trail is short, smelly (lol), and easy maneuverability. Lots of things blurping and bubbling making it entertaining.

Yellowstone is always a treat

Stunning!

Gorgeous hike! Wildflowers are amazing in the summer!

A super easy scenic trail. Started late but no issues. Spotted a coyote and if course, bison.

The hike in is nice and downhill. You are hiking through the valley so there are definitely gorgeous views the whole way and we saw some wildlife too. It was a pretty exhausting trip back up. The end is this cool bridge over Yellowstone River but I probably wouldn’t hike it again.

Did this hike first week of November. There was snow but the trail was visible! Waterfall was half frozen and super beautiful!

We only hiked about half way around the lake in late August. The trail travels thru forested areas and open meadows. We saw on large black bear running full speed across the meadow and up into the tree line before we even reached the lake. Head counterclockwise around the lake back thru dense forested areas, and eventually opening back up to views of the lake. Camped at DR2 a beautiful large site with amazing views of sunset and sunrise over the lake. Small path down to the shore to the lake to filter water. A pit latrine a distance from the campsite.

We didn't hike the whole thing, but there are some awesome sights of the canyon along this trail.

So pretty! We got caught in a rain storm, but hid under a tree for 15 min and then it passed. The falls are very cool and the hike itself is easy.

So amazing! One of the coolest places I've ever been! Easy to walk here and a never ending adventure walking through the geysers that go off at different times of the day.

Nice trail - about 1.5 in snow got too deep for us - wish we had our snow shoes with us.

When Yellowstone comes to mind so does Old Faithful. Yellowstone is a hydrothermal wonder with 10,000 it has more features then the rest of the world combined. Old Faithful is the most famous and is definitely something you do not want to miss. The build up and the fame of this attraction is such as it is hard for it to live up to it’s notoriety, that being said, it is still a must and it is still very cool. It can be very crowded, so you might want to checkout other vantage points rather than right in front of the center.

What sets Yellowstone a part from other national parks is the 10,000 hydrothermal features, more than anywhere else in the world combined. Old Faithful is the most famous of these features, but Midway Geyser Basin’s Grand Prism Spring is the most photographed because of it’s bizarre, but beautiful colors: oranges, browns, and yellows adorn the area surrounding it, and the blues, greens, and aquas grace the heated water, throw in the full spectrum of the rainbow, as the sunlight reflects through the rising steam, and you have quite a picture.

The Brink of the Lower Falls Trail is steep and might be rate Hard except that it is short and there are a lot of switch backs. But it is so worth it. So beautiful, so powerful! To stand right next to a big falls at the very point that the water cascades into space is nothing short of awesome. As the water thunders below it kicks up clouds of mist forming the most gorgeous rainbow For more on this special place as well as other adventures around the park checkout National Parks Hiking: https://nationalparkshikingpursuingbalancethruadventure.wordpress.com/2019/10/03/brink-of-the-lower-falls/

This is more of a scenic stop then a hike, but I do suggest doing a little walking to see the falls from different angles. Well worth the stop.

Alltrails map is incorrect. there is an obvious path that was used in the map, but looks like the park rerouted it to the trail I took (see recording.) old trail has a big rock blocking it on the way in, stay to the left. you'll see orange trail markers to cross the little bridge. where the old/new trail meet, you'll see logs across the old trail to prevent access. overall cute little hike to get some steps in. waterfall was frozen solid, but views were nice. lots of grouse making noises in the grasses!

Whew coming back up was no joke! goal was to see hellroaring but that pond before it had some giant prints in the fresh snow that sketched me out enough to turn around, since I was alone. they were probably wolf, but MASSIVE. also saw some bear tracks frozen in the mud both before and after the suspension bridge. so they were at least a couple days old. gorgeous hike though!

We hiked/walked this trail on a sunny Friday afternoon, 10/25/19. The trail was covered mostly in snow but it was still manageable. We didn’t get a chance to finish the trail but the geysers we saw were amazing (except for the sulphuric smell - lol!). We’ll have to come back and do this one again when we have more time.

Hiked or walked this short easy trail on a sunny Friday afternoon, 10/25/19. The trail had a mix of snow and muddy sections with some icy patches. You don’t really see the colors and full view until you get to the top section where it all comes together in a nice scenic view.

Easy trail with great views of the geysers. We went on a sunny Friday afternoon 10/25/19 and were fortunate the crowds were at a minimum. The trail had a lot of snow on it with icy patches but it was doable if you went slow. Beautiful day and amazing colors!

This was a nice short trail with multiple views of geysers we hiked on a Friday, 10/25/19. The colors are amazing! The path was challenging in some areas with snow and ice but definitely recommended. We were fortunate the weather was nice and sunny because the forecast the following day was snow.

Harder trail than expected. The snow made it a rough traverse, but falls well worth the hike. Many goat trails. I’m afraid of heights, and those gave me pause. Trail heads up and up and just when you think you’re done ... you keep going up. Great hike
