  • Really not worth the trip unless you have bicycle. Not much to see and geyser itself is not really impressive after you’ve seen so many better geysers in yellows .

  • I loved the steam phase, it was really cool! Also, it never stopped, or, at least that's what it seemed like.

  • Eruptions are about every 3 hours, although it starts spurting about a half hour earlier. The trail leading out to it is fairly flat, following the Firehole River. They don't post eruption times for this geyser (at least, not that I saw) and we happened to luck out that it went off about a half hour after we got there. There is a logbook there (at the geyser, not the trailhead) where people who've witnessed an eruption log it so you know if/when to expect it to go off when you get there.
  • Really cool geyser with a quick 2.5 mile in hike. Check the book to see the times it erupts
