Fairy Falls

Fairy Falls
Yellowstone National Park

Fairy Falls is 200 foot water fall. That comes right off the top of a plateau.

Their are a couple of different ways to get to the falls. The easiest way is from the midway geyser basin. Or from fountain flat drive. Both ways are beautiful. But fountain flat drive is a much longer hike. Both of these trails are bicycle trails also. It also offers a view of grand prismatic that can't be seen any other way.
And it passes right along goose lake. Witch is on the map but you can not see from the road. The trail also reminds me of the fires that swept through park. You can see for miles and miles all of the burnt timber. But you can also see miles and miles of new life. It is an amazing cycle for sure.

So if you have the time and the energy. I think this is a great trail for just about any body.
The lake and the back side of grand prismatic. Are also the first things you see on the trail.
I know i will be back in the spring.
This is a wonderful place so please remember to haul out your trash and please pick up after other people. If we all do this we can insure the beauty of the park for years to come.
