Great hike to the Morning Glory Pool in Upper Geyser Basin, the basin with the largest collection of geysers in the world.

The Morning Glory Trail leads from the Visitor Information Centre and the Old Faithful on wooden boardwalks along the world's largest collection of geysers in the Upper Geyser Basin of Yellowstone National Park. On this 6,6 km hike we experience spectacular geyser eruptions, intense sulfur scents and admire colorful water as well as boiling hot water and sparkling pools. Many information boards about the individual geysers and pools help us understand the phenomena.
