“beautiful winding road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

This road follows along the Firehole River and canyon. Just beautiful, but narrow road in some spots, so if you are the least bit scared of heights, this may be a problem. Road is one-way, so that helps.

“Take the one way road for 2 miles.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

One of the loveliest wild places in Yellowstone National Park. We found this on our last day in the park on our way back to West Yellowstone from Old Faithful Inn. After spending three entire days in Yellowstone this was the most beautiful breathtaking drive of our time there. It's only two miles but the waterfall in the canyon is not to be missed.

“Well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

A great side road with lovely water. Great place to picnic, away from crowds. You can swim in the river at the southern part, so bring your suit and a towel!

“I wish I had read TA before visiting! Missed the swim.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We missed the opportunity to swim in the thermal pool in Firehole Canyon. It is not advertised or signed and we drove right by.

I should have consulted Trip Advisor before we visited.

The Drive is a nice byway and the rushing water was very soothing and the hint of pine in the air was very refreshing. A nice break from traffic on the loop road.
