    A slightly hilly hike with low to medium foot traffic. A great waterfall but a short trail. We did this trail and Fairy Falls back to back. Pretty views!

    A nice, flat hike to get away from the crowds in the park. The waterfalls are beautiful. A good hike for a family.

    Beautiful lakes and ponds in a short walk. Nothing spectacular but great if you just want to stroll for 2 - 3 hours.

    We did the loop counterclockwise, starting on the fairly steep switchbacks up to the overview of Biscuit Basin. The children and grandfather in the family ahead of us were having to rest a lot. But the view from the switchbacks included Old Faithful and a few other geysers actually spouting. Quite a sight. After traversing the top of the ridge,the trail begins its steep descent toward and then alongside the falls. And what glorious falls they are! In Spring I would probably give this trail five stars just for the falls. We saw a marmot sitting on a rock near where the trail evened out. We followed the rushing stream surrounded by wildflowers back to the end of the loop. For those without the time or energy for the entire loop, begin the hike by turning left onto the loop and just go the falls. It's still a lovely hike.
