Lovely easy hike for all ages. We loved walking along taking our time, and going down by the river. Mostly shaded.

Beautiful hike crossing and wandering along a fork of the Gallatin river and then ending at a tall waterfall. Good for children. Go early as the trail gets very crowded later in the day.

I was a lovely day to hike to the falls and we enjoyed it. One of the reviews I had read before going was that it was "stroller friendly". Whilte I am sure that it is possible to push a stroller the entire round trip, it sure would take it out of you.

Also, there are some areas where it seems like sheer drops on the sides of the trails. They made me nervous with the children playing around while on the trail.

Easy hike with several stops to go down to the water before arriving to the big falls. Very beautiful waterfall. Highly recommend if you are in the Big Sky area

Nice and easy hike for all ages. The falls are totally worth it! The trails are nicely maintained and there is good parking.

Awesome family hike!

Well maintained. Lots of places to rest. Is mostly down for going in and mostly up going back.
Beautiful sights along the way and waterfalls at end.
Easy for my 8 & 11 year old to do.
Only down side: was lots of people.
Wear good shoes for the hiking of ups and dows

We visited during the flooding time that ultimately closed yellowstone. This led to a tremendous view of the falls as the river was running much higher than normal. The lower viewing platform was inaccessible due to the increased overflow at the falls. Overall we traveled with a three year old, seven year old, and two over 60 year olds and all did this hike just fine.

Our family hiked to Ousel Falls in June of 2022 and enjoyed a breathtaking view. The trails are well maintained and safe. I have read reviews that indicated that they were friendly to strollers, but I was glad we elected to hike without one. It would have been safe enough, but not much fun to push. There are plenty of spots along the trail to stop for photographs or a break. Overall, we really enjoyed the experience.
