We decided to check out Mystic Falls. Came to a fork in the road and decided to go right (1.7 miles said the marker). That was a climb but the view from the top was worth it. Then we went on down the loop and...More

We were here the end of July. This was an easy hike to see some beautiful waterfalls. Parking was easy as well. Great Stop especially if you enjoy waterfalls !!

On the day we traveled, most folks were taking just the short hike to see the pools and the falls (which were nice). But the full loop provides excellent views, especially on a clear day. The attached photos attest to this.

We took it slow uphill on this 2.4 mile round trip Mystic Falls loop. A separate out-and-back option is 0.7 one way along the river to the falls. Stunning vista.

The description which best fits is: A moderate hike with a water falls at the end is like a good dinner with chocolate cake at the end. The water falls is beautiful and a great reward for a hake through some beautiful woods. I highly...More

we see a lot of falls in our travels and Yellowstone has more than one. This one was not my favorite because it was a very narrow path without nice rest spots.

Nice trail with some shade. This is the first time we did this trail. Falls were pretty and I would say it was an easy walk. Be sure to have your bear spray.

We did not realize this was here until spotting the sign. The hike back was fairly easy and the views were awesome when we got to the falls. It was not too crowded either.

I'm a little late with this. But you drive to the firehole to swim. Parking is tight and the road is one-way, so you can park at the exit and walk-in. It's not at Mystic Falls, but off the same road.

Totally easy to find...The trail is marked and so is the trail head! A beautiful little hike.
