Very pretty scenic drive. The geyers along the way are very good too. Some of the geyers were better than Old Faithful.

The drive is stunning, but if it's a hot day what a wonderful place to swim. So much fun. I was very worried about some of the young people who were cliff jumping,though. Dummies. Very glad no one got hurt.

There was quite a bit of rain during our last vacation to Yellowstone and one day while we were out driving around we discovered this scenic drive! Couldn't get out and enjoy the place due to the rain, but definitely worth doing again. A good place to linger and maybe bring your lunch.

The Firehole Canyon drive is a 2 mile one way drive. The views into the valley of Firehole river are beautiful. There are many small waterfalls along the way. There is also a swimming area, we were not able to stop as the road and was so busy and no safe parking spots to stop, but it looked a great... More

The Firehole Canyon drive is only about 2 miles long. The views into the valley of Firehole river are beautiful and there are many small waterfalls along the way. Birds are also plentiful here, we saw a couple of osprey and some hawks. Some other bird spotters we met had seen a bald eagle, but unfortunately we missed that. There... More

The swimming area was still closed when we were visiting, but we enjoyed the nice, slow, quiet drive and stopped to enjoy the view of the falls just off the road as well.

We always go on this side off loop road, as the canyon is gorgeous. Roll down your windows and enjoy the rich sounds of this small canyon. We also saw several elk as we journey thru the area. Stop at the end of the road and check out the bbeautiful water fall that carved out this canyon.

Very beautiful, but heavier traffic especially near swimming area. Bring your swimsuit, if weather allows. You can swim among the rocks...a cool thing for families to do. Kids seemed to really enjoy it.

A lot of people, apparently, do not follow this drive......we really enjoyed it and stopped at each place that had a parking area. The sights are a little different that some of the more popular spots and they are spaced out more than in some areas. But, the pace is what you make it and it is nice to be... More

Nice drive and an easy way to escape the park crowds. Scenery was nice but not spectacular relative to the other Yellowstone sights.
