OBSERVATION POINT TRAIL
Trailhead: Firehole River footbridge behind Old Faithful Geyser
Distance: 1.1 mile (1 km) loop
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
This loop trail gains about 200 feet in elevation to a prominent overlook providing a great view of the Upper Geyser Basin. Elk and bison are often in the area, and it is not unusual to have the overlook to yourself during an eruption of Old Faithful.
