South Rim Professional Reviews and Guides
"This trail overlooks the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and its two thundering waterfalls -- Upper and Lower Falls. The trail passes Lily Pad Lake en route to the spring-fed Clear Lake, completely surrounded by forest in an active thermal area containing boiling water holes and bubbling mud pots. It is a magnificent hike with a variety of scenes."
