The Cascade Corner comes as close as any part of Yellowstone to having it all. This three- to five-day route passes by many of the region’s highlights. It’s tough to argue with good catch-and-release fishing, soakable five-star hot pots, lovely backcountry campsites, and wildlife galore in the lower stretches—especially when the majority of the trail is downhill.

Cascade Corner lived up to it's reputation and was scenic and beautiful! I was suprised though by the limited wildlife sightings as compared to Lamar Valley last year. Maybe it was the elevation / timing/ or just luck. I'd like to understand this more, the movement of wildlife in YNP. It did not diminish the trip at all and the river, waterfalls, hotpots, and terrain was spectacular. We added a trip up to Dunanda Falls at the end by cutting across the Bechler Meadow and it was a great add on. This trail is truly memorable.

Great hike. nice wide trails nice campsites all along. Only saw one bull moose and some elk. First day is solid trees until you pass the Shosone lake area then you follow the river. Great hot pools to soak in halfway through. Tons of waterfalls
