Amazing

The Lower Geyser Basin is incredible. The amount of hydrothermal activity here is astounding. This area is definitely worth your time in Yellowstone.

More Geysers
Jul 2021
There are a bunch of geysers in the area as well as hiking trails. Some unique geysers in the area, but by this point in the park, you've probably seen a few hundred already.

Largest Basin in Yellowstone
Sep 2020
This basin is easily accessed off the Grand Loop Road, along Firehole Lake Drive. It is the largest basin in Yellowstone and includes several of the most visited features including Old Faithful.

We were impressed by the White Dome Geyser and the dark Surprise Pool.

Good, informative, signage.

there are a LOT of geysers to see in the park--and all of them will act different based on time of year, weather, their spouting history, etc. I recommend viewing them all

Great geysers

Be sure to wear a hat and carry water as you will walk farther than you realize going from one geyser spot to another, especially since they are all on different schedules.

Another amazing example of nature. Nice walkway around the various geysers. Interesting to see the different types of geysers and how they affect the surrounding landscape.

Did Fountain Paint Pot Trail
Sep 2020
We did the Fountain Paint Pot Trail that is part of the Lower Geyser Basin. Had no issues finding parking at around 5:15 pm on Thursday, 9/3. The .5 mile trail took us around 30 minutes. However, at that time of day, it got pretty hot.

Don't miss a single pull off at Yellowstone National Park as the pandemic is here and you are not allowed to do much else.
