We LOVED this hike and the view of the falls. It is absolutely beautiful in June when the water is flowing. Not much parking, which means little to no other traffic. When we hiked up, there was no one else in site.

Wraith Falls is a dainty waterfall located on Yellowstone's North Loop Road between Mammoth and Roosevelt. It takes a little more walking to view this waterfall vs. it's neighbor, Undine Falls, but the walking often means fewer visitors and seclusion. Wraith Falls was one of...More

Easy hike to a great view of the falls. Not many people in the area. In fact, we had it to ourselves in the early morning. Worth a stop.

This was a quick stop on our drive from Roosevelt to Mammoth Hot Springs. We didn't stay long but enjoyed stretching our legs to see this waterfall. It's over a large flat surface, making it look like a giant waterslide. There was lots of water...More

Yellowstone has countless waterfalls to offer views from, but don't count any of them out just because you have seen some other ones. Each one is a gem in itself. We generally spend about 15-20 minutes at each just enjoying the beauty that each one...More

This is a easy trail to the falls and worth the short hike to take a look at this interesting water fall. It has an interesting fan type shape and you just might see some small game along the trail. Enjoy!
