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!

This is a hike we did as a family, back when we had a 4 year old. Appropriate for that age & a nice hike to a waterfall.

Wraith Falls is probably very pretty in the spring/early summer when the winter snow melt puts a lot of water in this creek, but in August in barely had water. It is a unique type of waterfall. Rather flat face of rock with ridges in...More

There is nothing too difficult about reaching the Wraith Falls' viewing platform, just a short walk and a few steps to climb. This isn't a suitable area for disabled people or wheelchairs but so long as you are reasonably fit it's quite an easy walk....More
