The view from the southern end of the loop is expansive and very pretty on a clear day.

Such an interesting hike with lots of geological features!!

We were able to go in late October. It was a wonderful hike since we were about the only ones there!!! We saw lots of bison and such interesting and magnificent scenery!

Nice waterfall and worth getting out of the car real quick but I would see other things first like brink of lower falls. Easy and quick hike for sure.

Interesting but a bit too smelly. Nice information if
You have a guide who is passionate about the area.
I enjoyed it with Wildland Trekking.

I guess if you are going to show some out of town folks Old Faithful and want to call it a hike, this would be the route, but not really something I’d do again unless that was the exact goal. Hiking up to observation point started to feel like I was finally hiking but then by the time I got away from the crowds of people we began to descend into them again. Views of a bunch of tourists waiting for Old Faithful to erupt, and a river bridge, and a descent view overlooking the other side of the lodge. Good if it’s your first time in the park and just want to walk around.

Simple, easy walk with a spectacular view. Fun to scramble a bit on the rocks at the base as well.

Nice easy hike, very intriguing geology.

Old Faithful is way too hyped up. Its predictably is about all that’s notable. Beyond that it’s jammed with bus upon bus of tourists who leaving thinking “that was it?”. My recommendation is to get away from the main events and hike to some waterfalls - Mystic, Fairy, Osprey. They are not difficult to get to and you’ll taste more of the ruggedness and beauty of Yellowstone.

Really cool, love the legend as round it as well.

Wonderful sights!

Just so cool. Amazing sights.

Good family friendly hike

2 different thermal features which are very unique on their own.

Unique geothermal activity by the side of the lake gives it a different appeal.

Very Unique geological experience

Part of the Lower Geyser Basin, Fountain Paint Pots across from Firehole Lake Drive offers a variety of geothermal features and is worth the visit.

Short mud pot trail, there are much better areas to view geothermal activities. 3.8 miles/6 km south of Norris Junction, the lower portion of this colorful hydrothermal area is wheelchair-accessible. The upper trail to the mudpots is steep and rough, and not recommended for visitors using wheelchairs. Fountain Paintpots is a better viewing area.

Saw Elk at this interesting group of hot springs adjacent to the Yellowstone Lake

Nice trail that leads to a beautiful river

The short walk was make all the more interesting with the 4 inches of snow cover...giving the area a 'rather steamy' fog like look as you walked. Interesting area to explore.

Goudronné! Incontournable (sans jeu de mots) tout de même.
