Trout dancing at the falls
Oct 2020
Great drive along the river. Main falls had trout jumping about. Very picturesque. Cascades were beautiful as well. Swimming hole area was closed due to Covid. Looked like it would be a great swimming hole.

Beautiful Blue River
Sep 2020
The Grand Loop Road follows this river through much of Yellowstone Park. It cuts through or runs along side many of the major thermal basins. We enjoyed the many beautiful views of the thermals and wildlife.

Beautiful and less crowded than the main road
Sep 2020
Yellowstone has a few little side roads, most of which are only able to be traveled in one direction. There is a small one way road along part of the Firehole River that is beautiful and includes a great waterfall.

Pretty
Sep 2020
A pretty canyon with some unusual geology (the meeting point of two lava flows), accessed through a special one-way road off the main road.

Cool Colors and Fly Fishing
Aug 2020 • Family
The Firehole River flows through several significant geyser basins in Yellowstone National Park to include the Upper Geyser Basin, which contains the world-famous geyser Old Faithful. The river was named by early trappers for the steam that makes it appear to be smoking as if on fire. The Firehole flows over three of Yellowstone's major waterfalls: Kepler Cascades south of Old Faithful, Firehole Falls and the Cascades of the Firehole in Firehole Canyon. The River can reach 86 degrees and only fly fishing is allowed on this river. It has cool colors from the minerals and geothermal activity that flows into it. Definitely worth checking out.

Great View
Jun 2020
Great View! It was closed when we were there, but it is still worth a stop to see the views. I can't imagine swimming in this cold water.

While we went in Jan, one of the most stunning sights we saw on the loop! A great photo opportunity to not miss! Simply beautiful especially on a sunny day!

Great swimming hole here, but usually crowded
Aug 2019
The warm waters of the Firehole River are fun to swim in! But it can be difficult to find parking at the swimming areas.

Probably one of the most missed drives in the park.
Sep 2019
This one way loop provides some of the most beautiful scenery in the park. Don't miss it! No buses or large vehicles are allowed on the one way road.
