This is bucket-list stuff. At almost 15 kilometres total and descending 457 metres on a not-so-great trail in places, it’s not for everyone. But, except for the lesser-known Agate Creek Trail, this is the only way down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. It’s not so deep nor so hot as to the bottom of the other, more famous, Grand Canyon of the Colorado River who’s trail is on the one hand more developed and on the other much more beaten up. This trail is generally off the radar though I must admit I hiked it during a slower time of year; I only saw one other party of two.
Evidence of dormant and active thermal activity is seen along the way. The footing can be moderately insecure in places. Backcountry campsites at the bottom, permit required and with no open fires, appear so very enticing.
This is a remarkable and quite accessible way to experience some of the deeper aspects of Yellowstone.

We took about 2 hours to get to the river, stayed about 2 hours at the river and took about 3 hours climbing up. There is parking at the head of the trail, and it is called the Glacial Boulder Trail then once your're in the woods it splits and the seven-mile hole trail starts. The first part of trail has amazing sight of the canyon then mostly woods then the descend to the river. Worth it, great pictures, eat at the river, start by 9 am or before, no restrooms, trash cans etc. It is rated as difficult bit is due to the climb up, it takes a good body workout but other than that is pretty easy, personally.

The trail start just a bit further on the road past Inspiration Point. There is a pull off which you can park at that can fit about 5 cars otherwise you need to park at Inspiration Point and hike up the road to the trailhead. The trailhead is at the pull off just beyond the Bolder Point of Interest. The entire Seven Mile Hole trail is 10 miles round trip and listed as strenuous. We did just a bit more that the first 1.1 mile to Crystal Cascade which is easy to moderate. There is some up and down but not too bad. The trail winds thru a pine forest with some views of the canyon (Sublime Trail on the South Rim had many more views of the canyon). The pay off (besides a fabulous trail in the woods with canyon views) is the terrific view Crystal Cascade which is a 4 section waterfall that you can see in total as it flows from the top of the canyon most of the way down. This trail maybe the only place from which you can get a view of these great falls.

When we went in early June we only met 2 other groups on the trail. Amazing how few people walk this trail given how terrific it is. There was no marker at the Crystal Cascade observation point but you know it when you see it in that it is such a great view of the falls in it's entirety. This trail (under Seven Mile Hole) is on the handout of Canyon Day Hikes which you can get from any Visitor Center.

Yes I'm a wimp overall but this trail pushed me to my limits. The last 1.5 miles down the mountain are tough, there is no "trail", it's rocks. However, when you finally make it down the mountain the view is AMAZING! Going back up the mountain is very hard. Steep, unstable rocks, the altitude is tough. Bring your bear spray!!

Far removed from Yellowstone's deservedly popular and crowded geyser basins, hot springs, and bubbling mudpots are myriad backcountry trails that attract those who love the solitude and grandeur of the great outdoors, without the crowds. Count me in. If you are physically fit and ready for a strenuous, challenging 10-mile round trip hike Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River, then this hike may be for you. Starting through dense lodgepole pine forest there are several spur trails along the canyon rim with spectacular views into the canyon. We have made this hike several times and seen bears on a couple of occasions, so be alert, make noise, and carry bear spray. The trail down is steep and the footing a bit unstable in some spots, but don't let that deter you. Give yourself time down at the river to rest. The hike back up is no joke. My wife and I are experienced and in shape our legs were burning. There are a coupe of campsites near the river if you want to make it a two day trip. If you don't think you can handle the whole trip, take a walk along the canyon rim, enjoy the woods and views into the canyon and turn back when the trail starts to descend. Just know your limits.

This trail was strenuous, steep, with much unstable footing along with the great views. We are flat-landers and would not recommend this unless you are physically fit and adjusted to the altitude. Tried fishing, but the swift current and wind did not make it easy. A bear had been seen near the parking area, and left it's calling card shortly down the trail, so be very bear aware (we did not see the bear, luckily). You can get some great views of the canyon colors without going down into the "hole", but it is not actually "flat" as much as rolling up and down even before the steep section to the bottom. Just know your limits and what you are getting into before you go.

I could not imagine the trail was going to be so nice at the same time it was so tiresome. The climb back is difficult for those who are not used to make trails.
