It is not so pretty, and of course has the sulfur smell, but is very much part of what you must see in the Park!

We visited on our third day in Yellowstone. We really enjoyed the Terraces and got some great photos. Unfortunately, whilst we saw plenty of evidence of them, we didn't see any of the wildlife which apparently is so abundant in the area. We visited at the end of our three days in Yellowstone, and felt that other areas were more... More

Regretably, the last winter trip we made here, I was too ill to get up to the Hot Springs terraces. The walk over from the General Store is short, and the only real issue is snow and ice on the boardwalks and stairs, so wear cleats. We saw a bull elk grazing as we went up, and he seemed perfectly... More

We just returned from Yellowstone and were amazed. The hot springs were stunning, if a little bit smelly. We would go back again in summer when it will no doubt be busier, but accessibility would be better. Go if you have the chance.

Just love the terraced formations, and the colorful mineral deposits! Then the area was crawling with elk!

We visited Mammoth in Sept '13. We were staying in Gardiner, so were only a short distance from the entrance and Mammoth. What a beautiful place Mammoth - it is awsome!! It was absolutely beautiful and showed nature's magic at it's best. We also saw a lot of wildlife in the area - a bonus. I would highly recommend Mammoth... More

I could not believe the stark beauty, mineral formations and the bubbling waterfalls. Great walking trails and information about the area. They work hard to ensure your safety in this very thermal area, which is commendable. A must see. It gets very warm in this area.

This large sculpted mass of white limestone is amazing, I've never seen anything like it. It's like you've entered another planet. The walk is really good a lets you explore the whole landscape. There is lot to see so take your time. In some places the boardwalk is a bit steep and there are quite a few stairs

The colors and smells of the entire area are unforgettable. Take your time as you visit the areas of Yellowstone, each unique and offering a geographical science book on nature. The hot springs almost look like a Hollywood scene. You almost don't believe what your censes are telling you. Take an RV and take your time. Watch out for the... More

My son and I were in Montana and decided to hit Yellowstone since we were so close. It was well worth the trip even though the temperature was -20F. The hot springs were beautiful and quite amazing. There was only one road open (to Cooke City) but that offered many opportunities for viewing elk and bison. Truly a breathtaking view!
