Flaming Geyser State Park is a 480-acre day-use park with more than three miles of freshwater shoreline on the Green River. The park's most unique feature is its "geysers" (methane seeps). Park activities include whitewater rafting and model airplane flying.

Easy few hours to enjoy nature walking.
A must is the rail toward bubbling geyser.
There are a few different loops to walk at Flaming Geyser State Park. Some of the smaller loop are around large fields and are nice for people that just want to do a flat walk. One loop is around a remote controlled airplane field. My some enjoyed watching the planes fly. The is a very short hike to a bubbling methane pool next to the river. It has stairs and is pretty easy. There is also a short hike to go down to the river. Do to the clay cover ground it can have standing water and mud. It stays this way for days after the rain so wear waterproof hiking boots. The last trail goes about halfway up the hill on the perimeter of the park. It has mild hills and a waterfall. When we went the stream under the waterfall had moved making a 6 to 8 foot crossing area that had mud about 3 inches deep. There was no way around it. I had on waterproof hiking boots so I just trekking through it. There was no running tap water so I had to clean then off in the Green River. This would be a nice place to go in the summer. There was a lot of fresh deer trails and dropping suggesting the deer visit the fields each day. Maybe in the very early morning. Dog friendly just remember the mud in the rainy season.
I really wouldn't classify this as a "hike," but more of a nature walk. If you're in the area and already have a Discover Pass, then this is a fine place to have a picnic or walk the dog. But I wouldn't go out of my way to visit Flaming Geyser.
Oh, and the "flaming geyser" is nothing more than a tiny flame, slightly larger than a candle's, coming out of a pipe in the ground. Whoop-de-do.
