Glad we stopped at the upper terraces to walk the lower terraces from the top. Really interesting from a scientific standpoint.

I just saw the lower springs as my back was hurting. Was able to view up close for photos. You can walk up higher for views of upper springs. Restrooms nearby too

Having been to Yellowstone10 years ago, I was excited to show my family the once-beautiful Mammoth Hot Springs area. What a disappointment! We went in July 2017 and it was a lot of walking in unshaded areas to see dried out after dried out white...More

After seeing Old Faithful and the other geysers, we thought Mammoth would be anti-climatic. It wasn't at all. The terraces were beautiful. And the pair of elk so close by were a pleasant photo opp. Definitely recommended.

Yes, you may be sick of learning and seeing thermal activity but this is a bit different that geyser world and is worth seeing the formations. The good news is you really don't have to walk anything if you don't want to. When I was...More

We had no idea this existed. We were just driving the Loop Road and encountered Mammoth Hot Springs. Walk the long boardwalk for as long as you like and then continue your drove pulling off at the overlooks along the road. Just amazing sites.

Fascinating area, and not as crowded as other park areas - especially if you can visit in the am. Park visitor center and restaurants are nearby.

My husband insisted we see this while visiting Yellowstone. However, I could have skipped it. It's hot, stinky, and sad looking.

This area is easily skipped... but don't. It is at the top of the Northern Loop, but definitely worth seeing.

Depending on how busy it is when you go, I'd recommend the parking areas that are road-side right next to the springs. There are separate parking areas near the upper & lower sections. If it's really busy when you go, you... More
