The colors throughout the paint pots is amazing. I took my time walking through and looking at this awesome site. I was there in November hiking and camping. The snow made the colors seem so much more vibrant
Did this trail as a kid when family was visiting Yellowstone. I remember the vivid colors from the pictures. I recall being enthralled with Yellowstone.
Pretty decent spot, great to see if you want boiling mud, has some decent color amoung it. Good stop if you have a little extra time
Nice, easy, and very interesting. The distance was not bad for young kids but there were plenty of locations where they could wander off the trail and hurt themselves. We started the day with this walk around 8:30 and by the time we were done, the parking lot had twice as many cars.
Really neat geysers in this area
really cool area with cool paintpots
Not really a hike. Good for families who want to see the springs and paint pots. Definitely check this out.
Not at all a hike. It's an easy trail which kids and people on scooters go on. Scenery is decent. it's more of a place to see just to see.
Beautiful thermal features
