The short hike to Fairy Falls is right off the path that provides aerial views of Grand Prismatic Springs. On the whole, an easy couple of miles but also a fairly boring couple of miles if you’re not immersed in conversation with your company. Arrival at Fairy Falls waterfall marks the end-point of the trail. Since we were exploring with our nephews and niece, the falls provided a nice spot to pause for lunch, for the kids to play and explore, an opportunity to snap a few family pictures, and some time to bond with the locals.
I’m honestly not sure how much I’d recommend this hike to someone traveling without kids or looking for a really phenomenal hike. However, it suited our purposes quite nicely.
