Took the boardwalk around the entire Upper Geyser Basin. There were a lot of geysers and springs along the trail. We spent hours on this boardwalk. I recommend purchasing the Science book for kids from the Visitor Center. I comes with a backpack that you check out with thermometers and tools to use on your hike.

If you have kids 5+ years can pair this hike with a scientist patch earned from the visitor center. Was cool as part of the scientist activity you had an infrared thermometer and educational materials that made the hike so much fun. Add on a coyote visit during the hike and it was phenomenal.

Easy walk if it's not too hot out. You get to see lots of different smaller geysers and things all pretty close together. So much to look at but if you're not fascinated by this type of thing like I am, staying by old faithful and skipping the loop may be sufficient

A good set of geysers. Make sure to be around when old faithful goes off. You may also get lucky and see some of the other geysers go off.
