Mammoth Hot Springs is one of the most dynamic hydrothermal areas in Yellowstone National Park. And it is one of the park's most popular destinations. View travertine terraces. See multi-colored hot springs. Take a ranger-led walk. Learn about thermophiles and geothermal features. Tour Fort Yellowstone, a cavalry post from 1886 to 1916. Visit Albright Visitor Center and, in addition to exploring the exhibits, watch a short film on the history of Yellowstone. But don't limit your discovery to natural phenomena and history. Discover the habitats and terrain of the Northwest Yellowstone. Hike Beaver Ponds Trail, a moderate 5-mile loop, and catch sight of elk, mule deer, pronghorn, moose and beaver (dams and lodges). Head to the Boiling River, one of only two safe soaks in Yellowstone, and take a fun break from family touring. Follow Grand Loop Road south to Willow Park and watch wildlife in solitude in the early morning and late afternoon. Ride horseback in Gardners Hole and survey the backcountry from the saddle. Watch elk on the front lawn of the Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel before you retire each evening. In winter, snowshoe and x-country ski in a group or individually.
