This was the coolest. After spending the night at the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel we headed off to the hot springs. The area was created over thousands of years as hot spring water cooled and deposited calcium carbonate, a form of limestone. The colors of the pools were beautiful and the travertine terraces were incredible. Minerva Spring & Terrace was... More

This place is kind of other-worldly but extraordinarily beautiful. Take the stairs or go up to the top.

Mammoth Hot Springs is well worth the visit during the day or night and any time of the year you can visit. The walk from the upper terrace parking lot is best taken in a clockwise direction so we mature people are going down the stairs and up the gradual sloping walkway. Walking at a slow nonfat burning pace provides... More

I have been to this location a few times over a 50 year period, and can recommend it at anytime of the year, but I think it was most impressive in the winter. There is more water flowing, and the steam makes it look more impressive. The last time I was there in the summer, it was almost dry and... More

The sights, the trails, even the sulphur smells are so cool to experience! Also in late September there were LOTS of elk around bugalling!

Mammoth Hot Springs are amazing, and when we hiked the access trails there were about 10 other people there with us. Cool geology, beautiful colors and shapes as the mineral rich waters flow over the calcium carbonate deposits, and yet we had some privacy. Go now!

By all accounts this area should be ugly, it's barren, mineral covered and hot, but somehow when you see it all you can see is it's beauty. You can do a drive through, which I suggest, and park and walk. If you have time do both. Some of these features need to be seen from different vantage points to really... More
