  • This might be the smelliest place in the park but it is a diverse, bubbling, wonderful place to explore. It was especially nice in a heavy snowstorm!  more »
  • Over a wooden path next to the parking lot you walk along some peculiar and not so aromatic geysers and "witch boilers". Especially the rotten eggs smelling Mud Vulcano and the Growling Dragon's Mouth Spring are impressive.

  • This is one of my absolute favorite spots in the whole park. The small hike is one of the most fun for chances at seeing wild life as well as observing some beautiful and interesting thermal features. Make sure to take the time to admire the views on the boardwalk hike around the bluff.
  • Enjoyed this location. The Mud Volcano was very active and boiling. It was a little crowded and the parking lot pretty full but a little bit of patience paid off.
