    Route Description for Wraith Falls Trail

    The Wraith Falls is a gorgeous route on the northern edge of Yellowstone National Park. This trail is well maintained but features a series of stairs that is not stroller friendly or wheelchair-accessible. The best time to check out this trail is in the springtime when the spring melt floods the creek, and the waterfalls are at their peak volume. Standing at 24 m tall, the Wraith Falls are a gorgeous sight. This route is a wonderful way to tap into the beauty of the Wyoming wilderness with the whole family.

    Beginning at the Wraith Falls Trailhead, follow the path south to the Falls.

    Snap some photos at the viewpoint and enjoy the beauty of this stunning waterfall before heading back to the trailhead the way you came.
