“Great side trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

This is a great detour from the main road if you are traveling from the canyon area down to Old Faithful. Very scenic and not very crowded, a few great spots to stop and get out and take pictures and enjoy the scenery.

“Superb Scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

A lovely drive through magnificant scenery. Certainly many Kodak moments of breath taking views. The waterfalls were impressive and easy access to all of them. Another great day.

“best place for a swim in Yellowstone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I had looked for a place to swim in Yellowstone because my 14 year old son's life revolves around water. We swam in Firehole River because I found out on Tripadvisor that it was the best place in Yellowstone for swimming. It was a bit crowded the day we were there but lots of fun. My son and I were able to jump in upstream and float down through the rapids.

“Another must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

The old narrow road (one way) winds through the canyon with amazing views of the sparkling river and falls. Several places to stop and take photos safely.

“Beautiful, but busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Gorgeous views and masses of photo opportunities but too many cars and people. The swimming area looked lovely but once again crowded
