About the trip

Waterfall, Hot Springs, and Geysers

Your day will begin with an easy hike to the Grand Prismatic Spring Overlook. From above, the spring's multicolored concentric circles are mesmerizing. We'll continue along a path to Yellowstone's tallest frontcountry waterfall, Fairy Falls, which plunges nearly 200 feet over the Madison Plateau.

After enjoying lunch by the falls, we'll continue our journey. We'll follow a stream of thermal runoff until we arrive at two very special thermal features: Imperial and Spray geysers. Once we've had time to explore this backcountry geyser basin, we'll return the way we came.
