While in Yellowstone make it to the Mammoth Hot Springs....wonderful town right next door. This is a pretty cool site to see with a number of colorful and interesting hot springs. The formations are very interesting, and you will be amazed at some of the colors at the springs.

This was a little different than other things as you had to climb and there was so much more color. Each level is a little different and the views get better. All along the path there is education information which provides a break for tired legs. Well worth the visit.

I was a bit disappointed in the dried up look of most of the formations. The last time I was there was quite a bit of water running over the formations which made them much more attractive. The trails around the formations are easy walking and very well maintained. I even noticed they were able to take wheelchairs around the... More

Simply amazing to see! Looks like giant ice formations but actually created by hot springs. Easy Boardwalk paths to walk on and you can see as little or much as you want to walk.

It's a long drive from West Yellowstoen but you can not miss Mammoth hot springs. We liked it very much even if it wasn't my favorite spot in Yellowstone. The terraces are amazing especially the white ones, so beautiful. The Upper Drive road was closed because new geysers make holes in the road, really funny to see how powerful nature... More

Other than the hot springs not a lot to do in Mammoth Springs, but it's on the North loop so worth stopping for an hour or so.

Seeing this area was just something that is hard to explain; it's a place everyone should see in person in their lifetime! Pictures DO NOT do it justice! Just stunning, amazing, mysterious!

Mammoth is so different from the rest of Yellowstone that it is worth the time it takes to get there. Again, not as heavily visited as other part of the park. The newly remodeled visitor center is very nice.

I loved it and it was a SUPER hot day in July!!! It's worth the little walk up the wooden pathways. The different colors and textures are so pretty.

Interesting hike around the Springs. Well laid out board walk. Can be a challenge getting to the top of the walk but worth the hike.
