  • The Solitary Geyser is perhaps a third mile hike starting from the Geyser Hill boardwalk (or as a side route from the Old Faithful Observation Point hike). The Geyser is more of a short 3-5 foot...  more »
  • This geyser is located up the hill close to the Old Faithful. It is not as busy as you need to take a little hike there, upwards. Easy doable and nice to do after seeing the Old Faithful.  more »
  • It's an easy walk (0.3 miles) to get to this geyser. The geyser is nice and it's worth to visit. There is a bench at the geyser to rest.  more »

  • Great site
  • Some people will diss this geyser because of its 4ft height, but it’s still pretty cool. It erupts approximately every 5-7 minutes. I stayed for five eruptions. The size and longevity differ between each eruption. Sometimes the height would be about two feet and last about 90 seconds, other times it would be 4 feet tall and last 30 seconds. It was so cool! Take a lunch, sit, and enjoy the frequent eruptions. Make sure to stay in the designated trail area- there is fragile ground!
  • Not many people come up here but worth the short hike.
  • Beautiful
  • Really love Yellowstone!
