Mystic Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This dayhike is popular thanks to its proximity to Old Faithful, and it offers easy access to a pretty backcountry cascade. Complete the full loop to leave the crowds behind and for an expansive overview of the Upper Geyser Basin."
--Andrew Dean Nystrom, Top Trails Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks (Wilderness Press).
"A popular day hike to a popular waterfall."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Yellowstone National Park (Falcon Guides).
"This hike follows the Little Firehole River to Mystic Falls -- a full-bodied, powerful waterfall cascading down several benches with a total drop of 100 feet. The backcountry portion of the trail also includes an overlook of Biscuit Basin. The wooden walkways at the beginning of the hike meander thorough the thermal pools and geysers of this basin. Many people visit this area specifically to view these thermal features."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park (Day Hike Books).
