One of the only places you're officially allowed to sim in Yellowstone. Be warned it can be a fats flowing river but it's warmed by some hot springs so it's a great temp. Don't let young kids in by themselves!

The beautiful river and falls make the Firehole Canyon Drive well worth the 1 to 2 hours need to enjoy the rugged scenery. There are places to stop for for photo opportunities.
