Mammoth Hot Springs

Come view some Yellowstone Hot Springs and look at the beautiful travertine terraces.

Mammoth Hot Springs is a worthwhile trip - the view packs a serious punch!

There is a great place to grab an ice cream or a snack for your walk to the incredible Mammoth Hot Springs (there are two locations at the hotel and general store that are both good choices).  It’s hard to describe how incredible this place is but it reminds me of the ice castles seen in Disney’s frozen or an incredible work of art as it seems more imagined than real.


The colors, the shapes, and the fact that it’s been created over thousands of years in nature are all awe-inspiring.

Bring a stroller or baby carrier. There is not a lot of room for error and it takes a super hands-on approach to get there safely. It is so important that you make sure ahead of time that the kids know to stay on the path. In the prime summer season, it can be busy. Just bring your patience, and be ready to allow ample time for fun.

This incredible destination is totally worth the trip!
