My favorite geyser basin in the park. Beautiful springs, interesting geologic features, lake views. Easy, short stroll on a boardwalk.

If you enter from the South this is the perfect introduction to the power this place has.

Good variety! Saw a couple bison at entrance and then a couple more along the shoreline. Marmot on the rocks near shore. Heard animal moans/calls in the forested area - our party of 4 thought elk/deer?? Super windy (stormy) along the shore so lightweight jacket is good. Terrain is relatively flat. Family-friendly.

Short and sweet. Boardwalk the whole way around and the hot pools and whatnot are super cool to see. Maybe half of the people were wearing masks though even with the boardwalk not wide enough to maintain social distancing so be sure to being your own mask to protect yourself at least.

This boardwalk trail rates five-stars because of its uniqueness and it borders Yellowstone lake. The park does an excellent job in routing guests to close encounters with the diversity of the spouts, geysers, pots and vents. Several are even "in" the lake itself. Every turn on the boardwalk is a new fascination. There were many families with small children, but not overly crowded. The boardwalk design is also good for people with mobility issues.

The trail starts out looking pretty barren and unpromising, just off East Entrance Rd. But the experience quickly changes to an enchanting wooded landscape that follows the edge of the lake. My wife and I have spent a lot of time in Oregon and both thought the shoreline bears some resemblance to the central Oregon coast. The trail features beautiful points overlooking the lake and distant mountains, jetties, hydrothermo rocks, meadows of wild-flowers, thick woods and open tundra - all in 2.5 miles. On this July afternoon we saw only geese and bison. We also spotted several bear tree-markings on the last third of the(clockwise) trail.

So much to see! An easy add-on that’s 100% worth it. Of old faithful loop, grand prismatic and this one- west thumb was my favorite. Don’t forget your mask during covid, this is a popular one!

Short hike. Not too busy, great hike for small children. We did the hike in the afternoon and it was windy and a little cold

Fantastic quick hike. Lots to look at in a short distance. Saw a bear and three elk as well. Kid friendly.

HikingGreat!

Great! I’ve never seen this many geothermal features in one place (Except maybe Rotorua in New Zealand). Everywhere you turn, you’ll see a geyser or fumerole of some sort. Bring a West Thumb map so you don’t miss any features.

Ran into a black bear, it ran away though because an elk distracted the bear so he/she went after the elk instead of us. This trail isn't very well maintained and some of it is destroyed because a tree fell on the bridge. When starting, start on the left next to the display then continue, once you make it to the point just use the same trail back no need to do the loop, it's not marked at all.

Incredible! A family-accessible boardwalk that’ll take you past awesome views of unique Yellowstone features. The colors are absolutely stunning! Don’t miss out on this spot if you’re coming in from the Yellowstone South Entrance. Saw two young elk as well. Be sure to complete both loops and take a look out on the lake - everything is worth seeing here!

Beautiful sulphuric pools and view of the lake. Don’t expect to clock a fast mile - you’ll be gawking at the colors! Saw an elk at the beginning of the trail. Pretty empty, but we got there pretty early and the Park is just opening up.

I would skip the full loop next time. Just do clockwise and then go to the point and return. The forest part isn’t anything to see and coming back had to cross on thin boards to get across creek and then walk through muddy field. Going to the point and back is definitely worth it though.

Great trail and even better Instagram photos. Hiking is all about social media validation anyways.

Mommy and I decided to celebrate my 37th birthday by visiting Yellowstone. This was our first hike and it quite the leg burner. Half way through I feel and got a boo boo on my knee. Mommy kissed it and make it better. A must do!

This was a beautiful view of Lake Yellowstone and the Tetons and some fun geysers along the way.

The drive along the lake is super pretty, especially the Absaroka Range.
