“Not as crowded as some of the more famous Yellowstone areas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I liked this area because there are a lot less people around. There is also a decent hike at the back of it. Once you get to the back take the gravel path towards Mystic Falls and when the road forks take the Overlook path up. At the top you can look out and see Old Faithful and this whole area. Pretty cool. Just pack bug spray, the mosquitos will eat you alive. Little too strenuous of a hike for our 3 year old, she ended up on daddy's shoulders most of it.

“Very Nice Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

The biscuit basin tells you all about the geysers in that area. It is a pretty site to see, even if it is not the biggest. If you do not want to get hot go to this site in the early morning or late evening.

“Mystic falls should not be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

1.25 miles from the Biscuit basin parking area. Easy hike to Magnificat falls through a lodge pole pine forest. Should not be missed.

“Gorgeous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

Some really incredible views here. The Sapphire spring was gorgeous, and one of the better hot springs that we'd seen.
