Features Hot Spring · Views

Boardwalks protect you and preserve delicate formations. You must stay on boardwalks. Pools may be near or above the boiling temperature and can cause severe, possibly even fatal, burns.

Description

Follow the boardwalk in a counterclockwise direction. The trail passes several small springs. The second spring is surrounded by a mineral buildup that slightly elevates the spring. This "terracing" gives rise to the name Terrace Spring. Next you'll come to a small, hot spring lake with a constant rolling spring. Some might think this is a geyser. But to be a geyser, it must have intervals of inactivity. This is merely a very active hot spring. The trail continues along the large pool and loops back to the parking area.

Thanks to guidebook author, Tom Carter, for sharing this trail description. To learn more about visiting Yellowstone, check out his book, Day Hiking Yellowstone.
