The Mammoth Hot Spring Terraces have always been a popular feature in Yellowstone. The step-like terraces form as heated water moves along the Morris-Mammoth Fault. Those are so beautifully fragile and wonderful sights. The Mammoth Terraces are constantly changing shape and color. Springs which were active may be dry and lifeless sometimes later, yet activity may one day resume again.... More

While the various geyser basins were the best part of the park, this was another unique experience that just added to the fact that Yellowstone is full of extremely varied locations. This area was extremely well maintained with the boardwalks being extensive yet unobtrusive to the views. The area itself was unique beyond description with formations that were unbelievable and...

This national park is one of a kind. Visited in early October and experienced three different seasons fall, winter and summer all in a matter of three days. The landscapes are so different and dramatic. Mammoth hot springs is nothing like any hot springs I ever saw. Completely unique.

You can walk all the boardwalk areas here, or just a few or one. Very interesting; another natural wonder in Yellowstone.

Mammoth hot springs doesn't look like much at first but once you go up the wooden ramps and explore you wont be disappointed in the formations and little pools it creates. I've never seen anything like it! Located in Yellowstone you need a $30 day pass to get into the park, but its worth it. You can see bison on... More

Mammoth springs is a very scenic place with multiple different formations, hot pools, sulphur springs and very nice trekking deck. Very nice to visit anytime of the day. We stayed at Mammoth springs Hotel so we did morning walks everyday and it was very nice. Must place to see

Amazing to wander through the steaming hot springs in the middle of winter with snow all around! Well built board walks and paths make for a safe time.

This is a good place to stop. In the fall, you can find elk in the town. Be careful, if it is mating season time, you don't want to go near bulls. (Always be careful -- never approach more than 25yds.) In the winter, see the terraces and occasional elks visiting. Note, the hotels are undergoing renovations, so this year... More

This is pretty unique compared to other stops. The 'steps' are the main attraction, other than that not much to see. But the steps are worth a stop, we really loved the way they looked and found them very interesting.

Yes these are pretty. Yes they are worth a look once. What was more impressive were all the elk in the area. I mean in your face elk. We had to skirt around a few to get to our cabin. A girl at the ice cream shop said one brand new mother shooed her away when she tried to get... More
