I loved the steam phase, it was really cool! Also, it never stopped, or, at least that's what it seemed like.

I'm just letting you know that the trail was closed in late August 2020 for fire control as were all the other accesses in this region of the park. So hike in at your own penalty. I'll wait until next year and try again.

even though the eruption schedule is about 3 hours apart, so your chances of missing it are great, we missed it by 40 minutes, the path is still beautiful as it winds very close to a creek and you get some wonderful views.

This is a very easy hike on an old road along the Firehole River. We used it as a way to get acclimated to the elevation in Yellowstone. We did miss the geyser erupting by about 30 minutes and decided not to wait the approximately 3 hours for the next eruption. It is still a great hike with plenty to see and do. The wildflowers were very pretty. We did see a deer. The geyser cone is unusual and you can walk around the area more than other geyser basins. Just be careful of thin crusts around thermal features. A nice introduction to Yellowstone backcountry.…

We hit upon this Geyser whilst wandering the road in the Park. We pulled over to see more of it than we had from the car. It has a large vent and pillar shape caused by many eruptions, unfortunately we had limited time and had to miss the next one.
