“Good Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

The hike is enjoyable, you have the two paths to choose from at the fork. Easy one to the left. Moderate one to the right.
I preferred the one to the right. Be prepared for a little leg work on the path to the right! The over look of the basin is fantastic!
When path comes out by top of falls you get a beautiful look.
The walk back down next to the falls is relaxing.

“Nice hike.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Nice hike, beautiful scenery. Take plenty of water for the trip but it is worth it. Make sure to bring a camera.

“Outstanding short waterfall hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

One of the better easy hikes in Yellowstone to a GREAT waterfall. The best way is to hike the longer full loop around the back of the falls.

“Very good hike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Take this hike all the way from Old Faithful geyser- you will see a lot of geysers along the way. The hike isn't strenuous but it will take a few hours all the way from Old Faithful and back. There is also a possibility to park the car nearby the waterfalls and hike just the end of the trail.
