  • A must see. Great way to get up close with the hot springs! Parking is tough
  • A nice, less crowded basin with a jewel pool, Sapphire Pool, on the trail. Don't miss West Geyser a bit further from the main loop!
  • Great small walk to see awesome pools and geysers that go off every couple minutes.
