Roaring Mountain

Roaring Mountain, named in 1885 for the constant howl of escaping steam, is an acid scrubbed hill. And while the mountain no longer roars it still steams and the steam vents, known as fumaroles, emit an audible hiss. This roadside attraction is a must stop for families traveling Grand Loop Road from Norris Junction to Mammoth Hot Springs.
Getting There
 
Roaring Mountain is located 4.5 miles (7 km) north of Norris Geyser Basin and 15 miles (24 km) south of Mammoth Hot Springs. Be sure to pull your vehicle off the roadway when stopping at this roadside turnout.
Things to Keep in Mind
 
Roaring Mountain is one of the hottest spots in Yellowstone National Park. Keep to boardwalks and trails. Do not throw objects into geothermal features.
