Park and get out of the car at the top of the hill, find the boardwalk entrance and walk the entire route to the down-slope platform. There are several pull-out stations worthy of photos, especially close-ups with a quality camera.

Definitely worth it to spend the time walking around on the boardwalks taking in all the sights of the hot springs. It's unlike anything I'd ever seen before!

You can walk a little or a lot to see these hot springs. There is a board walk to safely walk around these hot springs.

This was my first trip to Yellowstone. Fewer people in October, weather can be unpredictable so be prepared for anything. There are many boardwalks so you can safely explore the hot springs. Beautiful colors and textures. Elk grazing nearby.

The upper part which used to be with water 10 years ago, has dried out and there is really not much point to climb all the way up. There is no panoramic view because the nearby hills are near and enclose... More
