Now this was everything the brochure showed! It's a nice walk to see the whole thing. It looks like frozen water running down the rocks! But its just the minerals from the water in geysers! A must see! But beware.....there is a strong sulphur smell as you walk...but its worth it 😊

This is a wonderful place for nature lovers and those who enjoy walking. We walked the entire site and saw hot springs and impressive natural formations created by the ever changing geothermal pools. Bring your camera. You won't want to leave without photos. If walking is challenging for you, you can drive from the lower sections to the higher ones.... More

I was really looking forward to Mammoth Hot Springs/Terraces and found myself pretty disappointed. The pictures you see make it seem huge and impressive, but (July 2016) so so many of the terraces had dried up and gone dormant. There were huge swaths of dry nothing and the parking was horrendous to see this nothingness! People parking illegally, waiting, and... More

I expected to see more springs, many of the bed were dry but it's still a good place to see. The boardwalk is good, you cannot take strollers or wheelchairs far due to steps, lots of steps. Go early or later as parking is awful mid-day. Once you park, the boardwalk isn't too crowded.

We stayed nearby and loved driving by each day. Then exploring, even in the rain was excellent. Do not miss walking around here.

My son and I spent a couple days touring Yellowstone in 2015 and at the end came out at the North exit and didn't spend much time at Mammoth. My wife, daughter, and I made a special trip from Bozeman to see it in 2016 and had a lot of fun in town and walking the boardwalk up to the... More

If you love nature what part of Yellowstone is an awesome. A lot of walking around the boardwalks and steps but it is worth it.

This site, in my opinion, is definitely worth the visit because it is quite unique. It is not similar to any other site that you can see in the park so visiting it should be on your list of things to do.

Such a beautiful area of the park. You need to get out of your car and either walk from the lower terraces to the upper or upper to lower which is easier. Don't limit yourself to the scenic drive. To truly appreciate this area you need to see it up close.

Since my son and I stay in Gardiner, this is the first area we stop at when in the Park. It was interesting to see the new spring at Upper Terrace Drive. It has grown since we were there last July. I prefer the Upper Terrace section to Lower.
