This trail offers great views of wildlife and the Northern part of the Yellowstone River's 20 mile long Grand Canyon. Along the way we saw plenty of bison, marmots and a small herd of bighorn sheep. The parking area (Yellowstone River Picnic Area) is the perfect place to have a picnic after a good hike.

Backpacked with favorite outfitter week of July 4 starting at Soda Butte Creek trail head then transitioned to Mist Creek into Pelican Valley finishing near Indian Pond. Terrain was easy to moderate until climbing pass between Lamar Valley and Mist Creek:about a 1,000 ft. gain over approximately a mile. Unbelievable scenery, especially Pelican Valley, and saw wolves, coyotes and 5 grizzlies, including one that foraged all afternoon in the meadow next to our campsite. Weather was fantastic and only drawback were the mosquitoes--tons of them around the clock. Thank god there was plenty of heavy duty bug juice to go around because we would not have survived the trip without it. Got plenty of arm exercise swatting them continuously and annoying as hell.

Strenuous hike with a well-earned reward of two lakes and beautiful scenery at the top. We had a real surprise at Surprise Lake when a mama black bear and her two cubs joined us at the lake for their afternoon drink!

I did this back in August with a group of friends. Cloud Peak does not disappoint! We took 3 days to hike in, summit, and hike out and it felt comfortable. Easy to lose the trail at times due to miles of boulder - hopping when you make the summit push. Gorgeous wildflowers, amazing views! Listen to the weather though, you won't want to be up there when a storm blows through. It does have a narrow section that's not for the faint of heart!

excellent trip. harder at top. very remote so be prepared

Visited on a family vacation many years ago. remarkable national treasure.

The historic site is a significant site along the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails. The drive to the site is gorgeous and remote. The drive alone is worth the visit. The trail, other than the markers is a simple walk along the creek and high plains. The primitive camping was nice and a bonus with the toilets.

I actually stumbled upon this trail taking backroads enroute to Salt Lake.

Don't be fooled by the "hard" level. 95% of the trail is easy. The overlook of the lake is worth the trip, which you can hike to for the photo opp then turn around for an easy day hike. The color of the water from the lookout is worth The trip. You'll be amazed how blue looking the water is. No picture will do it justice. The "hard" portion is from the overlook down to the lake itself, which probably should be classified as "very damn hard". The trail is lightly traveled, so there is some downed trees in the trail, but you can easily get around them. We set up camp near the lookout and enjoyed an easy overnight trip. You should too.

Easy hike but definitely recommend. We saw a total of 5 people the entire hike. It's 100% worth it to go all the way to the top when you get to the bridge. You can't stand on it but you can see it from the backside and it's a really cool perspective.... it was a very peaceful and tranquil hike. At least for late September...

This was a cool hike but easy.. once we passed the overlook to Primastic Springs the crowd definitely thinned out. Once you get to Fairy Falls I would seriously consider continuing on to Imperial Gyser. There was nobody back there so it felt like it was our own private gyser.... it also goes off like every 30 seconds. If you do the whole thing you get to see prismatic, the waterfall and a gyser.
