Nice easy hike. Boardwalk on a lot of it. Wildflowers in bloom. Nice falls but not spectacular. Good start to hike. 1/2 mile out. 1 mike total. Little bit of elevation at end.

The wildflowers on the way to the falls are beautiful this time of year. It's a short scenic hike. I really enjoyed the falls and scenery.

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
