- Description: An easy hike, walk or bike ride to a backcountry geyser south of Upper Geyser Basin. The 2.5 mile trail is mostly flat, partially paved, and follows the Firehole River through a beautifully unburned pine forest. In fall, the number of insects is down and the changing colors make this a terrific hike. The geyser erupts, on average, every three hours and observers maintain a log with the time and duration of previous eruptions. Bring bear spray if you plan to continue on the trail past the geyser as this is a bear frequenting area.
- Gear: Sturdy shoes or boots or bicycle; jacket or rain gear as necessary; hat; sunscreen; insect repellant, camera
