In forty years of hiking and camping this is one of the best trips I've done. This corner of Yellowstone has spectacular falls right along the trail, dramatic canyons, frequent hot pots, a big geyser, two great soaking hot springs, broad meadows, and some of the most beautiful fishing venues anywhere. We took eight days, to allow for a side trip to Bechler Hot Springs and a fishing day, and followed the Boundary Creek trail after the Bechler Ford in order to see Silver Scarf and Dunanda Falls and the hot pools just below Dunanda Falls. The trail is easy to see and well maintained throughout and (if taken from north to south) has only one moderate uphill section. I give it five stars only because I can't give more.
Stunnig beauty and terrific water falls and hot springs. Bears and moose in some areas. Hard hike up the hill, easy hike the other way. Lots' of people over the labor Dqy weekend.
