Pictures are beautiful, but cannot get the true experience from the walkway, which is more at eye level. We were told there are plans to build a deck to look over this, but not done yet

As with all of Yellowstone, you can just die from the people at the entrance. However, there are great sites away from the people. Just take the time get on a back trail and you'll find this a better experience.

Definitely worth seeing at least once. Yet again the number of people is a large detouring factor from visiting again, but what can you do?

Old Faithful gets all the pub, but walking the Upper Basin will be less crowded w/ better sights. In awe of the geological wonders.

After visiting Old Faithful, this should be next on your list. There is nothing like it in the world. Plan to spend a day gradually exploring the many geysers and pool in the geological treasure. Most is accesible by boardwalk but there are other geysers...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... More

Summer is the busiest, that is when we were there, late June. I've also been there in early fall and that was very nice.
