Loved this hike. Very short, and no one else on the trail. We turned a corner and saw a bull elk enjoying a nap in the shade. I highly recommend this hike.

This short 2.5 miles round trip is a must see! You can explore the falls and spend hours entertaining yourselves.

Simple hike that gives u two choices a hard way and an easy way. We chose the easy for now and got rewarded with a beautiful waterfall. Not too crowded either

This is one of our favorite hikes. The short route is great for younger kids and the longer route is not very difficult. We like to go right down to the base of the falls for the full effect, however, getting from the trail to the base of the falls is much more tricky with younger hikers. We saw two bison across the river just below the falls today. The wind was really blowing in the parking lot of Biscuit Basin, but the trees and canyon kept the wind at bay and made for a delightful hike to the falls.

A great little hike to a wonderful waterfall--very easy, about 4-5 miles, with a beautiful payoff at the end. Great excuse to get out of the car and see some of the real Yellowstone.

Great hike with forested area, meadows, and adjacent river. Some incline, but not difficult. Be sure to take plenty of water.

Not a difficult hike - moderate with some uphill hiking. Waterfall is breathtaking. Suggest starting from the left side; due to the steep decent on the last portion of the hike.

Good easy hike with a very nice waterfall. We just went up and back doing the two mile hike vs the 3 mile loop up the mountain.
