There is not a lot of hiking to do at Cave Falls. It's more of a short walk, but a great "hike" for children. The trail can be pretty slippery due to mist from the waterfall.

There are two separate waterfalls that can be viewed right from the parking lot. Cave Falls itself is a 250 wide 20 foot drop of water, and then a shorter waterfall of about 5 feet further downstream.

Cave Falls gets it's name from the cave that used to be located right next to the waterfall. Yellowstone officials believe that Cave Falls caved in around February of 2008. There is still a small outcropping where the cave used to be, but the trail is closed off to get over to it.
