The geology is fantastic! We drove through it, did not walk.

Stunning and gorgeous trail. We drove and stopped off occasionally to see the geysers, hot springs, and even a herd of bison! The beauty of nature is very clear here, the best trail in Yellowstone.

Did to say I did. Just a marker.

nice drive and not busy.. the cone geyser was a first!

Scenic but just a walk up a canyon in a picnic area.

Excellent drive enroute to devil's tower.

Great short hike, only a few minutes off the highway. Amazing rock formations to climb about and explore a bit off trail. Great for our 3 and 8 year olds! Also fun to watch the climbers on the cliff faces.

Simply amazing views

I couldn’t find this particular trail from where it had the trailhead, but we wandered around that area and went on a beautiful journey. Lots of rocks for climbing, beautiful flowers.

In April, the park plows and closes off sections of the park roads for non-motorized use. Many of the side roads to Jenny Lake and other view points, campgrounds and turnouts are also plowed. The weather couldn't have been better this year. And, April 21 was park free fare day, so locals said it was the most crowds they had ever seen. The main park road is relatively flat, but the side roads can have more elevation. Keep in mind that all the buildings including restrooms tend to be closed. We did see one portapotty at the first Jenny Lake pulloff (that was probably there only as they were doing construction there).

We drove to the Great Fountain Geyser on Firehole Lake Drive, which had just finished erupting and was spewing some steam and water about 20 feet as it finished its cycle. We spoke with a geyser expert, as she was knitting while timing the eruption and taking notes, one of several geyser watchers we saw on our journey. She had the Washington license plate “GEYSER." We also saw White Dome and Pink Dome Geysers along Firehole Lake Drive and drove through a seeping hydrothermal area surrounding Firehole Lake that looked pretty treacherous. The one-way drive came out at the Fountain Paint Pots of the Lower Geyser Basin. Don't miss this drive.

Very densely packed geothermal features in a single locality

From the north end of Jackson Lake, we approached Yellowstone on the Roosevelt Hwy through Bridger Teton National Forest, a big lodgepole pine forest, with many trees hit by fires appearing like giant toothpicks. We arrived at the south gate to Yellowstone just as (on the first day of summer, mind you) it began to SNOW! We passed by Lewis Canyon and Lewis Falls in the snowstorm, but couldn’t halfway see it and deemed it as a must-stop on our return visit (we also missed Moose Falls and the Dime Creek pullout). Finally, the snow eased off and we arrived at the Lewis Lake area, which was beautiful as the sun glistened on the snow-covered lodgepoles. Our first crossing of the Continental Divide at 7988 feet was quite interesting and exciting with the changing topology and weather. We reached West Thumb Geyser Basin (turning out to be one of our favorites) ahead of the snowstorm. On our return trip we had great weather and made a stop at Lewis Falls. Great drive, and GTNP and YNP make a great combination sight-seeing adventure.

a walk in a pasture. prarie and cows. nothing special

We drove down Gros Ventre road to the slide today.. never expecting to see the beautiful scenery we did all the way there and past it. we drove as far as we could past Atherton campground and up to a horse ranch. The aspens were spectacular and the river corridor amazing. Also the rich red mountain.. unbelievable. few people and stopped in Kelly afterwards for a sandwich. best day ever. highly recommend it!

Awesome drive with great views definitely give it a trip!

Amazing views!
