This is such a fantastic place, top tip is make sure you have read information on the area, there are lots of pamphlets available in the tourist information centres which help you understand what you are looking at. This area is truly amazing.
A walk around the Upper Geyser Basin is a must if you're visiting the Old Faithful area. The walk is lengthy, but not strenuous and can be done by people of all ages and physical abilities.

There is so much more to see than just Old Faithful. We walked the 6 miles of walkways & visited the Hotel and spent 6 hours here. We saw Old Faithful blow after just 5 minutes of arriving and twice more from distance. The most...More
This part of the park can take almost 3-4 hours of your day. There is so many geyser's in this area.
Predictable geysers in the area:
Old Faithful - 26 minute eruption window
Daisy - 1 hour window
Grand (Tallest predictable) - 2 hour window...More
The entire Yellowstone Park is an out-of-this-world experience, but the Upper Geyser Basin is surreal. Visitors should not miss it. Plan to spend time learning about the geyser formation, and also admiring their beauty.
another awesome place to visit. you cant go wrong anywhere in yellowstone. the upper geyser basin has the most stunning colours I have ever seen. there actually is not one area of yellowstone that isnt nice. definitely worth the view for stunning colours
This area is really spread out and it takes a lot longer to get from one point to another. Check in the Visitor Center to get times for possible eruptions. Old Faithful was not faithful for us time wise, but while we were waiting, we...More
All of the geyser basins are unique and must be experienced. So many colors shapes and landscapes await your viewing. Yellowstone offers an array of geological landscapes and I would love to go back. You can never see all that Yellowstone has to offer in...More

Hi Daniel: This is kind of a loaded question. That is if you are to go directly from Old Faithful up to the Morning Pool (near the end of the upper geyser basin) it is 1.5 miles. Depending on how often you stop, how fast you walk, will determine the amount of time you need. My opinion, give this ENTIRE walk (you can find a trail map of the area online search, or even here in Trip Advisor) about 3 hours. I enjoy photography and there are many places for picture taking. Early morning is the BEST time to go- less crowds. Better yet, going to Yellowstone during the shoulder seasons, less heat, less crowds altogether. This is what we found. If going in summer- definitely hit this area EARLY. Whatever you do, if you can, spend a couple days in the Old Faithful area, you will not be board or without things to do and see.
