  • When we were there, both trail head were covered in water. One of the trail head had a fallen tree. Quite sure this trail was not on NPS's favorite list. The trail leads you to a cliff with nice views. Nothing spectacular.
  • Very easy hike that starts just before the lake and continues in the forrest, passes the lake and ends in the forest as well. The outlook on the lake is amazing. Overall the hike is a bit more than 2.5 miles and took us a bit more than 2 hours
  • good hike, not a lot of elevation gain, do it on a nice sunny day in the AM
  • Of all the trails we did in Yellowstone this was probably my favorite. We saw a part of Yellowstone you don't get to witnesses unless you are off the boardwalks. I think it's about a 2.56 mile trail. But, you go through a meadow, the forest, along the water where the wind reached up to take my hat, and back through the forest and meadow. It was breathtaking views all the way through and we saw very few people. Take some water with you, there are no restrooms. Look at the map at the trailhead before you start your hike. Don't miss this trail if you are there.
  • Nice walk to Yellowstone. We had just arrived in the Park and we are found face to face with a Buffalo male a ton on the way, fantastic moment. Further we spent in a wonderful location between the Lake and the forest. See photos.
