Summary: An interesting waterfall, set amid thermal features. Yellowstone is a marvel, full of waterfalls and other amazing sights. Definitely something to see.

Mystic Falls are in Yellowstone National Park, near the Biscuit Basin a few miles north of Old Faithful. This is a very interesting waterfall. There are steaming vents on either side of it, and hot springs empty into the river just below the falls. Be careful where you step! Some of those streams are hot!

It is a 1.5 mile walk to the falls. The first half a mile is through the Biscuit Basin, where you will see Sapphire Pool, among other thermal features.

Nearby Falls

Yellowstone is full of waterfalls. The Upper Falls and Lower Falls are the grandest, and easily seen from several viewpoints.

Many of the others are roadside falls, such as Firehole Falls, Gibbon Falls, Kepler Cascades, Lewis Falls, Moose Falls, Rustic Falls, Tower Falls, and Undine Falls. Others, such as Mystic Falls require a hike of a few miles, and there are many more wild and remote waterfalls.
