    Old Faithful Geyser and Upper Geyser Basin

    58 reviews

    Well worth a side trip while in Yellowstone. Stop by the Visitor Center to find out the timing. Be prepared for crowds - get there early to grab a seat.

    Grand Prismatic Spring

    32 reviews

    Because of the minerals and varying temperatures, there are so many different amazing colors formed in the aptly named Grand Prismatic Springs. The steam surrounding the pools also gives this area a mystical feel. This is my favorite part of Yellowstone Park.

    Lower Falls and Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone

    31 reviews

    It's a long, steep hike down the stairs to the viewing platform for the lower falls (and an even longer one back up!) but the trip down to take a look is more than worth it. This is part of the rugged natural beauty that makes America the stunning place it is, and if you're in Yellowstone, it'd be a ...

    Yellowstone Lake

    21 reviews

    Huge! Lots of places to pull over for a picnic and to enjoy the view. Not as exciting as other parts of the park.

    Mammoth Hot Springs

    22 reviews

    Mammoth Hot Springs is unique. The limestone, mineral calcium and the rock forms because of the scalding water coming out of the earth. It is amazing because it creates different colors with different minerals.

    Fountain paint pot

    5 reviews

    The fountain paint pot trail is just wonderful. In a short walk along a wooden bridge, you are greeted with geysers, the emerald green fountain paintpots, bubbling mudpots and mists from the hotsprings. It almost feels like you are walking into a world made from mist, at one point, it's impossible to see more than a few inches ahead. On ...

    Sapphire Pool

    5 reviews

    You would not believe how blue the water can beā€¦its like being in Hawaii. Just don't breathe in the Sulfur too deep. The constant waters bubbling up from below make it beautiful but kill off all the vegetation nearby.

    Ice Lake Trail

    3 reviews

    Ice Lake trail is an easy hike with few obstacles and lots of great viewpoints. We walked about a mile in before turning around. It was our first hike in Yellowstone and we hadn't bought our bear spray yet - worth the $40 btw. We half expected to see moose with some of the terrain and you get a good ...

    Grizzly Lake Trail

    3 reviews

    The Grizzly Lake Trail is an awesome and fairly easy hike, but be prepared to get wet. We hiked it in May, the middle of the wet season in Yellowstone. It was so wet that one of us had to run back to the car early on to get better footwear. The hike starts with a hill to the left ...

    Biscuit Basin

    4 reviews

    Some of the most impressive geysers. Some are crystal clear, Celeste blue, others have a cloudy complexion, reflecting the sky above. Worth a stop, and also the trail head to Mystic falls which is miss-able if you are pressed for time.

    In 1994 there were no wolves in the park. From 1995 they had been reintroduced in the park and now they are around 300. It's fantastic observing them playing, running , jumping. There many families of wolves in the park, occupying different parts of the park. Sometimes they fight againsrt each other.

    Old Faithful

    2 reviews

    A definite sight to see !!! Dress in layers, weather can change fast. Bring a snack while waiting for the geyser to erupt. Be ready with your cameras. The predicted eruption time is in the visitor center lobby which is helpful so you can shop around before waiting and sitting outside by the old faithful.

    Cascade Lake Trail

    2 reviews

    A very, very wet trail in the spring but worth it. The trail was basically a stream and there are several stream crossing you can't avoid getting wet in before getting to the first lake but the views are awesome and wildlife is rampant, in tracks if not in person. If you take the whole walk it's very long but ...
