Old Faithful Area: Mystic Falls Trail - Yellowstone National Park

Distance, round trip: 3 miles

Difficulty: moderately strenuous

Trailhead: At the back of the Biscuit Basin boardwalk, 2 miles north of Old Faithful Junction. You can also begin 0.25 miles south of Biscuit Basin; park in pullouts on either side of the road.

This trail follows a lovely creek through mixed conifer forest to the 70-foot falls, over which the Little Firehole River drops from the Madison Plateau. Turn around here or climb the switchbacks to an overlook of the Upper Geyser Basin, then loop back to the main trail.

*Bear Management Area: Trail closed until the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (usually the last Saturday in May).
