Two trails lead to this falls. The short trail is an easy hike and appropriate for most all ages. Like Globetreker commented the loop trail which we took, is much longer and quite steep and rocky in places. There are some sections with steep drop...More

Nice hike took about an hour or two. The falls are worth it. Of course, take bear spray, but this is well traveled and fairly easy to navigate trail along a river. Very much recommended for a family

Did the loop trail going up to the top and down to the falls. It's a long hike with some very steep parts. Saw some really young kids on this hike (under 6 years old). Don't advise that. It's too easy for a young one...More

Wonderful little gem that is not as well known and visited as many other sites in Yellowstone. It is quite an easy hike of only about 1 mile to the falls and is another beautiful site to see in the park.

This was an easy hike and the views along the way and at the falls were amazing, but please, use bug spray. Three days later and we are still itching! We would do this hike again, but we would bath in bug spray first.

This is about a 3 mile round trip hike along the Little Firehole River up to Mystic Falls. The scenery is just beautiful.
