About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The Mystic Falls trailhead is located at Biscuit Basin in the Upper Geyser Basin. It’s an easy hike for all levels through woods and small patches of open areas with wildflowers and views of the entire landscape. The trail travels alongside a creek flowing from the waterfall and travels upstream until it reaches the waterfall. Hike further up the trail up to the overlook for a gorgeous view of the area, which is also a great place for a snack before heading back. If you travel in summer, use bug spray as the area is riddled with mosquitos. And don’t forget to bring bear spray with you on your hike.
