Biscuit Basin Interpretive Trail is a 0.7 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Yellowstone National Park, WY that features hot springs and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
This interpretive trail has geysers, mud pots, hot springs and local wildlife, plus it connects to the following hiking trails: Mystic Falls Fairy Creek Summit Lake Three miles (5 km) north of Old Faithful is Biscuit Basin, named for the unusual biscuit-like deposits that used to surround Sapphire Pool. Following the 1959 Hebgen Lake Earthquake, Sapphire erupted, and the "biscuits" were blown away; it last erupted in 1991. Sapphire remains one of the most beautiful blue pools in the park. Mustard Spring provides a bright color contrast, and Jewel Geyser adds excitement as it erupts every 7-10 minutes.
Went here with family years ago and loved it! Could spend so much time admiring the hot springs! So beautiful and so unique! One of my favorite hot springs is in this basin (Sapphire Pool)!
Beautiful & very crowded. Have to check out if you're visiting Yellowstone though.
Don't miss Sapphire pool for anything!
Beautiful loop. The Sapphire Pool is the highlight here.
Short loop trail with some cool thermal features.
There are some really neat sights on this short walk. The hot springs are incredible.
Quick walk with some interesting thermal features. Finding a parking spot wasn't easy
This is mostly a walk, not a hike but it is one that is very lovely. The walk is flat and very easy. Good for everybody and there is lots of parking available.
This was quick and easy, lots of opportunity to see some good thermal features. Nice and easy.
