A beautiful side road from the main loop. There are a number of geysers along here, most of which are constant and two of which form the Firehole Lake. Short boardwalks take you out to walk round the larger features. We were there on a...More
The short drive is away from the crowds in the upper basin and main geothermal features, as well as the canyon and wildlife in the valleys. Several geothermal features along a one way drive with plenty of parking. A way to wander away from the...More

Sorry, Betty, I just got this, The boardwalk is very short, years ago there was a trail back from there for some distance but that is were the extremophiles were found for research and it is now closed. There are two boardwalks at the end, left and right, do both. Say 10 minutes each? Many buffalo in the spring. But before you go that far be sure to stop on the left as you drive in to see the bubbles rise from the Firehole pool, before you get to Great Fountain.
