Easy to follow trail, pretty steep at the beginning but then it levels out. There are two lakes, both are gorgeous! Could do an overnight at the lower lake as there is a clearly defined camp spot. We ran into a mama moose and her baby on the way down the trail :-)

Nice drive in Yellowstone. Get to drive through the original park entrance which is cool.

Palisade Falls

A wide black-top trail gradually winds up the wooded shady hillside passed huckleberry patches and under large pines to the open rocky clearing just below Palisade Falls. Our summer day-hike was relatively easy on our chubby middle aged bodies with occasional pauses needed for me (not my husband) to catch my breath. Wheelchairs, walkers and canes could easily be used on this well-kept nature walk path. Lunch at the falls was perfect but shade in the open space below the falls was hard to come by in mid-day of summer. Restrooms at the trail head were open and clean. No water for drinking that we could see. Our mini-adventure was late in the day. Though we weren't alone, we felt it quiet enough to relax fully.

Well maintained, even in the winter! The snow was great and even though we didn't have snowshoes, it was a nice hike. Easy but the falls are amazing - especially in the winter time!

You can tell by elevation gain (3200 feet) that is a pretty good hike. Great views on top.

This is a great family hike. I was able to do it with a baby on my back and with my dog. there is a bit of elevation gain but nothing too bad. The trail was really crowed but I did go on 4th of July weekend. I will be doing this one again. It was a really hot day but with the shade of the trees and the mist from the water fall at the end, we did not feel it to bad. The parking can get tricky so get there early if you are going to go during peak season

Dusty, buggy approach. All the fun was getting to the trailhead.
