Fairy Falls


Latitude & Longitude:






The Fairy Falls Trail is an out-and-back trail heavily trafficked and located near Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. The 4.8-mile course is primarily used for hiking, walking, running, and camping and is suitable for all skill levels, plus there's a waterfall! The Fairy Falls is one of Yellowstone's most spectacular waterfalls, a stunning 200 feet (61 m) high with two different trailheads that approach the Fairy Falls two different ways. Either park at the end of Fountain Flat Drive or park 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Midway Geyser Basin at the Fairy Falls Parking Lot. From the trailhead, walk 1.6 miles (2.6 km) through a young lodgepole pine forest to the falls. Then continue 0.6 miles (0.97 km) to Spray and Imperial geysers, adding 1.2 miles (1.9 km) to the hike. The trail opens in late May (Bear Management Area closure). Parking is minimal. This hike is pleasant with a moderate skill level. Take note that there are some steep and rocky areas along the way.
