Geyser Area Trails

Key information: Geyser Area Trails

  • Yellowstone National Park is home to nearly 60% of the world's geysers, and amongst these are some of the best known the most famous being the fantastic Old Faithful. The astonishing features found at Yellowstone inspired stories of fire and brimstone' from their earliest visitors.
  • Walk through this extraordinary area. With some geysers erupting regularly and others at random, you may need to plan your route to see them in action, but they are definitely worth waiting for.
  • The thermal areas hold their own dangers; boiling water sometimes lies under a thin crust, and people have been injured or even killed by the scalding water. Do not stray from paths, and don't swim or bath in hot springs.
