A short hike from the Biscuit Basin gets you to this beautiful area with quite a pretty waterfall. Definitely make time to see it if you are able to make the hike.

We decided to climb up to a lookout and never actually got to the Falls. But the lookout was so worth it. Not for sandals and hiking sticks are helpful but we saw Giant Geyser go off from a distance and it was spectacular.

This was a 'just right' length of hike. It's a little more than a mile from Biscuit Basin, so it doesn't take all day. It climbs steadily uphill, but it's not very steep. I think we were able to finish in about 2.5 hours. We...More

It was a nice walk, moderate ups and downs. Beautiful vistas along the river. The falls were nice, not full, nice. The walk back seemed nicer...views and some chipmunks at work in the trees, getting the pinecones to fall...to gather. So cute.

The Mystic Falls Trail is a relatively easy hike of about 2.5 miles round trip. Mystic Falls is very rugged and beautiful and well worth the trip. The trail starts at the end of the Biscuit Basin boardwalk. The boardwalk is very scenic and can...More

Two trails lead to this falls. The short trail is an easy hike and appropriate for most all ages. Like Globetreker commented the loop trail which we took, is much longer and quite steep and rocky in places. There are some sections with steep drop...More

Nice hike took about an hour or two. The falls are worth it. Of course, take bear spray, but this is well traveled and fairly easy to navigate trail along a river. Very much recommended for a family

Did the loop trail going up to the top and down to the falls. It's a long hike with some very steep parts. Saw some really young kids on this hike (under 6 years old). Don't advise that. It's too easy for a young one...More
