Nice paved drive with great scenery but not much wildlife. We did it on a whim but it really was one of the nicest drives we did in Yellowstone. Combine it with Lamar valley, Tower Falls or a few other sites.

It is great to get off the main road and see some scenery up close--this road will allow that! It is still busy, but take the jaunt and you won't be disappointed.

We took this drive and it was sure a wonderful choice for us . There are stops with attractions that we did not expect and a geyser that erupted as we pulled in.

This was a short detour off the main road and so well worth it. Keep your eye out for the sign it's easy to miss.

This was my first time to see Great Fountain Geyser and it blew Old Faithful out of the park. It starts slowly only rising a few feet then it quiets down for 5... More

The Fire hole Canyon drive is a short loop drive along the Fire hole River, just off the Grand Loop road south of Madison Junction. You drive alongside the steaming Fire hole river and see the pretty Fire hole falls. There is small section where you can swim, only one of two places where you are allowed to swim within... More
