Unique Stop in Yellowstone

On the northern end of the park, this site is a one of a kind inside Yellowstone. There are many walkways to view everything from many angles. A must stop.

Mammoth Hot Springs is a popular attraction near the north end of Yellowstone. There is separate parking at the base of the formation as well as over at the food and shopping areas. Some walking and stair climbing is necessary to ascend the formation by means of a wooden boardwalk. This sizeable feature is well worth a visit, both for... More

This is truly one of the most impressive features in the park. The formations are breathtakingly beautiful. To really see and appreciate the formations you must climb to the upper levels. Some of it is pretty steep but well worth the effort.

I had the pleasure of taking my young nieces and nephew to Yellowstone and this was one of our first stops. The look of wonder on my darling 6 year old niece's face as she studied the hot springs was worth the whole trip. She could just not comprehend how a natural hot spring could produce such a diverse landscape.... More

We visited the upper terrace of the hot spring. It was a popular place, so some difficulty parking, but so many interesting features! Boardwalks lead you through many of the areas. We stumbled upon a ranger giving a talk and leading a group through the site. Of course you are free to join the group and then leave at any... More

Got to Mammoth Hot Springs and we were greeted by elk and lots of them! They were lined up in the center of town just laying around and grazing. It was a remarkable sight. So glad we saw this. Also enjoyed viewing the terraces.

This is a most unusual feature which is accessible from its base by walking or taking the car up to the higher level. There are many different features such as terraces, springs, pools and geysers. Keeping on the walkways is essential.

It's always changing based on the flow and output, creating new pools and wonderful colors which are caused by microbes and some minerals. There's an upper level with magnificent views of the area and the lower levels to hike up the boarded path. I found late evening, dusk to be the most beautiful.

Mammoth Hot springs is the Headquarter of Yellowstone. It's got beautiful stone architectures. I dedicated about an hour or two to see this place then exit the park from the East drove towards Red Lodge. Along the road I made frequent stops for the bisons. They usually like to passed the road without pedestrian lines maybe we should add some... More
