Directions:From Mammoth Hot Springs, drive south Grand Loop Rd. for 4.5 miles to the signed turnout for Rustic Falls (or 16.4 miles north of Norris).

Rustic Falls is a busy turnout just south of Mammoth Hot Springs. Glen Creek drops 47 ft. forming this fan type waterfall at the head of Golden Gate Canyon. Some may think Rustic Falls is not too impressive, but we liked it for its uniqueness and interesting shape.

Another good waterfall nearby which we did not get to is Osprey Falls. This one requires a 8 mile (RT) hike to reach, but would be worth the effort if you have time.
