“A run through a lodgepole forest with views of Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone and Ribbon Lake.”— Jake Bramante
This is a sweet vantage of the canyon and a great spot for a snack. The Silver Cord Cascade, although right below you is mostly obscured by the rocks save the very lower section before it drains into the Yellowstone River.
Continue on the trail as it goes through some more trees to the campsite. You can continue through the campsite to the edge of the lake, but be courteous to those camping there.
