this is a must stop with many geysers, old faithful, grant, castle,. riverside, daisy, beehive. We stayed whole day walk around and wait for many geyser eruptions. certainly you will see old faithful, we were lucky to see beehive, grant, castle and riverside.
This is the picture that you see so often associated with Yellowstone. It is beautiful. But don't forget to take the Fairy Falls trailhead to the Observation area where you are above the Grand Prismatic Springs and can look down on it. It is an...More
These colorful geysers with their hot water are fascinating. Just take the boardwalk to walk among the geysers. There are plenty of benches & places to rest on the boardwalk. There is no other place in the world quite like this.
Without a doubt the most beautiful pool in Yellowstone. It is about a mile walk from Old Faithful, a very easy hike unless it is a hot day. There are plenty of benches and places to rest along the way. Heading back there is a...More
The upper geyser basin (also a middle and lower) is the showpiece of the geysers, featuring Old Faithful. But there is so much to see here, and to learn about, that you must (yes, that is must) stop in the visitor's center first. The center...More

Hi Daniel: This is kind of a loaded question. That is if you are to go directly from Old Faithful up to the Morning Pool (near the end of the upper geyser basin) it is 1.5 miles. Depending on how often you stop, how fast you walk, will determine the amount of time you need. My opinion, give this ENTIRE walk (you can find a trail map of the area online search, or even here in Trip Advisor) about 3 hours. I enjoy photography and there are many places for picture taking. Early morning is the BEST time to go- less crowds. Better yet, going to Yellowstone during the shoulder seasons, less heat, less crowds altogether. This is what we found. If going in summer- definitely hit this area EARLY. Whatever you do, if you can, spend a couple days in the Old Faithful area, you will not be board or without things to do and see.
