Real cool spot to check out some hot springs

Interesting trail. Got to see old faithful blow twice! So many interesting hot springs and geysers here.

Breathtaking. Never seen anything so naturally beautiful but DOES NOT HAVE A BATHROOM! Haha only complaint I have. Haha

Interesting but other spots in Yellowstone are nicer.

Hiked this trail to the overlook. Wow! it's a gorgeous view. I'd call it a moderate hike. We are seniors in our 60's, and felt like it gave us a little challenge. We packed our lunch and sat at the overlook eating on a beautiful fall afternoon. The only disappointment we had was the lack of wildlife. Even from the overlook, we could see no wildlife. But, that's the way it's been the entire trip. Where are all the animals? Wolves taking care of them?

This is an awesome little trail to get a sample of a lot of the wonders of Yellowstone. There are some sections with stairs, which, during our October visit, were caked in ice and really tricky to manage for children. Worth it though!

Great views and a fairly short, very pretty hike. Kid-friendly. We were cautioned to watch for bears, as some frequent the area.

Fun loop trail to see old faithful and connect to see other Geysers.

Such a pretty magical place. Absolute must if you go to Yellowstone.

Loved this hike! To the falls is a easy hike. We decided to do the loop after we got to the falls and saw how amazing it was. We went to the falls first and I want to think going to the falls first is the best route. But when we came down the other side it looked more gradual and had switchbacks. Our favorite hike in the park that we done this weekend.

A nice short walk.

Great easy walk on the boardwalk to see the geysers from different vantage points

More geysers. All unique

The geysers and pools are pure magic. Castle Geyser was definitely a favorite.

Such diversity in one park continues to inspire. The paintpots are beautiful and very entertaining to watch.

I personally enjoyed the beautiful pools of West Thumb even more than the Grand Prismatic area. It features beautiful views of Yellowstone Lake, and the pool depths and colors are other-worldly. The trail offers a brochure that talks about each feature that can either be returned or they ask for a dollar donation.

Go at sunset to get a great view of Grand Prismatic and alpenglow covered mountains. The new overlook trail is a steep but short hike.

Amazing view but very hard to enjoy with the crowd. Lots of rude foreigners with no consideration of others at all. Glad to see it from that vantage point once but will never do it again because of the crowd.

Awesome trail with some climbing required. We added the overlook to the trail with awesome views of the basin which made the whole trip 3.4miles. Falls were stunning.

great view.

nice walk along the lake. can be quiet windy but beautiful with the pools.

dragon's mouth spring was the neatest feature here. the mud pots at artists paint pots are cuter, lol.

i surprisingly enjoyed this more than i thought i would, lol. i started out at the old faithful area so maybe by that time i was already geyser'd out since i found the paint pots so bubbly cute! i'd suggest going clockwise (hang to the left) to save the best (mud pots) for last.

nice hike you can access via biscuit basin. you'll reach a fork in the trail- go left for the shorter route (0.6 miles more, i think) or go straight for the longer route (1.7 miles more).

You can see the whole area from the viewpoint

Awesome view.

Nice walk. Beautiful views.
