Nice thermal area with few visitors

A boardwalk circles around several pools. When we went on July 26, 2015, a large section of the boardwalk had collapsed and was not accessible.

This is a gem in the park. A short drive with beautiful views and a spot to take a dip and cool off.

We've always enjoyed this jaunt--especially the chance to bath in the Firehole River. Parking is challenging so come early.

This is great little one way side loop off the grand loop near Madison Junction. We stayed in West Yellowstone and took this side road a few times on our way to the Old faithful area and lower geyser basin. The road is narrow and RV's are not allowed.

I was a bit nervous along this drive and if you are afraid of heights, you may want to close your eyes on some turns. I was a bit afraid to get out of the car on some turn off areas. I was surprised at the beauty though and am glad we did this drive!

A drive along Firehole Canyon Drive can be very beautiful in the morning before the crowding begins in the afternoon. The River and falls are beautiful and the short loop is a nice change for the main loop road in this area. But be prepared for crowds of swimmers coming into the narrow road in the afternoon to swim in... More
