Hike to Mystic Falls in Yellowstone National park

From the Biscuit Basin trailhead, walk across the bridge over the Firehole river along the Biscuit Basin boardwalk. After 0.3 miles, you reach the Little Firehole Meadows trail. From here, walk 0.6 miles through the mostly open forest to the junction with the Mystic falls trail. Turn left here and walk another 0.6 miles to a good view of Mystic falls. All trail junctions are well signed.

Mystic falls is a rushing waterfall of about 60 ft. Watch the forest for animals, as we saw a good size buck Elk here during our hike.

When ready, return the way you came.
