Short route, good for if you’ve got less than an hour to kill.

Nice hike, moderately steep. Lovely views saw some wildlife and the geyser at the top was beautiful.

This is the best way to see Old Faithful erupt! The hike up is steep but the view is fantastic. So glad we did it.

One of my favorite hikes of the trip. The sign was down when I went and missed the usual path up. I ended up hiking a little larger loop which included passing by solitary geyser. Offers a great panoramic view of the Old Faithful area.

I have completed this hike on multiple occasions, one of the best spots in the park to see Old Faithful erupt. If you have the chance do the hike at night, the eruption is magical. Make sure to bring bear spray, and a good light!
