The falls itself is a great lunch spot and the overlook loop trial is a real treat with great views of the valley. We did the loop counterclockwise, saving the waterfall for the downhill part. It was delightful.

This was one of many hikes we did during our 1 week trip to Yellowstone. It was one of my favorites. It is a very easy, flat hike to a beautiful water fall. There is hot spring run offs near the falls, so if your climbing around the rocks be careful where you put your hand! It might be very... More

This is a shorter hike; a little over a mile. It is through the woods along a river. The scenery going to the waterfall is beautiful. The waterfall itself is quite beautiful. The braver can hike all the way down to the water's edge. It is slightly slippery on the loose rocks but is worth it. You can get right... More

Park Ranger, Erin, led us on this hike, and she was nothing short of fabulous! So friendly and knowledgeable. The hike started on time, and it was easy for all ages. The falls in the end were so pretty, and the setting is much different from the steamy landscapes of Yellowstone. This is definitely worth getting up for!

This is a wonderful shorter hike. The scenery is terrific. I was there at7:30 am and did not see another person until the end of the loop at 9:30am. You can see Old Faithful from the top. Bring your binoculars.

Beautiful falls but hot because of the lack of shade. Amazing how hot it gets during the day, and how cool at night! Lots of people on this hike, even early. Can't imagine what it is like midday.

This trail is long and exposed, but the waterfall at the end is worth it. About a quarter of the way in is a fork, take the left side, it's much easier going. The right path takes you up to an overlook of the valley, which is beautiful, but very switchbacked.The left fork takes you to the waterfall. When you... More

Mystic Falls is definitely a must stop. It's so beautiful. You can get great pictures from a lot of different angles. A must see.

This is one of the ranger led tours offered in the Old Faithful area and well worth it. The trailhead is off biscuit basin. The ranger was very informative, and the views up by the falls are incredible. We got to see a yellow bellied marmot. --I'm a hiker, but the ranger gives so many educational breaks that much older...

We have hiked this numerous times and never grow tired of it. It is an easy hike but gives you a feel for the "backcountry".
