There was not much going on the morning my family and I traveresed the area to Mammoth Hot Spring. We were greeted by so many elk frolicking that it caught us off guard. Because it was early, we were able to sit and enjoy God's gift of nature. We were not in a hurry and were thankful we came before... More

Visit Yellowstone before you die. And when you get there, make sure that you have the Hot Springs high on your "must see" stops in the park. This is a great camera spot. Plan on taking at least one to two hours just walking and gawking.

There are a ton of elk in the nearby area. Just see the lower terrace. We skipped the rest because we had limited time. Worth the time though.

If you read different guidebooks they'll tell you that Mammoth Terraces is constantly changing based upon which springs are active at the time. This area is in the Northwest section of Yellowstone and we made a special drive 1 day to get there because some of the pictures we'd seen had been stunning. Unfortunately when we visited in June 2015,... More

This was an other worldly sight. Not "beautiful" in the traditional sense, but still fascinating(and very smelly!) It is worth a stop if you get the chance. Some of the buffalo will sit right in the middle of the hot springs without a care in the world.

We had 4 days in the park & enjoyed walking through the upper & lower terraces. Area is not as colorful & varied as the other thermal areas, so if you have limited time in the park or have difficulty with steps, you may want to skip.

If you are looking for elk, this is your place. They are always lounging in the grassy areas around the ranger station. It's pretty amazing. The Mammoth Springs themselves are super cool. We found the ranger walk around the terraces very informative. The terraces are formed by the build up of travertine in the water over time. It really is... More

Mammoth Hot Springs is worth it but drive in from the north gate and go back out that way because the amateur park management who hire amateur road contractors will wreck your vehicle if you go any further into the park from here.

We really enjoyed Yellowstone and the awesome hot springs/. We spent a week there visiting all these areas. We were lucky it was a beautiful day to enjoy the springs.

Nice boardwalk around some really beautiful springs in northern YNP. Also a ton of wildlife inhabit the area including elk, wolves, bison, and mule deer. (Actually one of the few places in YNP you see Mule Deer).
