This is another must see on the tour through Yellowstone. It is not as spectacular as Old Faithful but worthwhile.

Lone Star Geyser is set apart from other active geysers. It's a 2-1/2 mile hike (fairly flat, but at altitude) from the trailhead. But the way is mostly easy, because the trail follows an old service road. The wooded trail parallels the Firehole River part...More

Do not be fooled by pre-geyser activity. Read signs so as to not miss the main event which lasts 15+ minutes.

It requires a 4 mile roundtrip to see the geyser and you better plan the eruption but this was better than Old Faithful. You really got a feel for what is going on in the underground plumbing at Yellowstone and the eruption was more than...More

Took the drive through this area and at the end is the geyser. Not much parking so we snapped some pictures. It is very white and stands all alone.

This geyser erupts about every 3 hours; first, a minor eruption lasting about 5 minutes following about one-half hour later by a major eruption, which lasted 25 minutes on my hike to this geyser. The hike is all level, along a stream, and is shaded...More

A very easy hike -- 4 miles round trip, all flat. The prize at the end is a geyser which is second only to Old Faithful but there are only 20 or so people waiting and watching rather than the 1000 at old Faithful. The...More

You don't need boots or poles to hike up the road to the geyser. Goes off about every 3 hours so if you can find out when the last eruption was you need an hour to hike up to it. Easy for families also.
