  • There is a trail off this basin called the Mystic Falls trail, which I recommend (west bug spray though!) For a great bird's eye view of geysers. This basin is not as crowded as others in the park.
  • This area has a very short boardwalk that takes you to a number of really beautiful thermal features, including the Sapphire Pool! Just make sure to get here early, as the parking lot fills up quickly!
  • Really amazing to go hiking to the mystic fall and the mountain top. You can accually go to the falls to touch the hot water meeting with the cold.
  • Parking is easier to find than near the grand prismatic springs. Short walk to see all the geysers and pools.
  • Awesome geyser, but make sure to come early as parking lot fills quickly.
