NotesThe heart of Yellowstone's geothermal area with the classic geysers Old Faithful, Riverside, Grand and Daisy. The route to walk will depend on the geyser eruption timings, which have a margin of error of around an hour or two for those geysers which erupt only once or twice per day. In addition to the geysers there are many multi-coloured steaming pools.
