Monument Geyser Basin Professional Reviews and Guides
"The first part of this hike follows beside the Gibbon River on the south edge of Gibbon Meadows. The trail then climbs a hill to a thermal area with unusual sinter cones, mud pots, stream vents and sulfur caldrons. A special feature of this hike is that few people hike the trail, so you may receive a private showing."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park (Day Hike Books).
"A short, steep day hike to an amazing thermal area not very many people ever see."
--Bill Schneider, Hiking Yellowstone National Park (Falcon Guides).
"Since there are few switchbacks, you may get the feeling that this route to a seldom-visited geyser basin was designed to discourage visitors. If you are an aficionado of geothermal activity, however, the unique juice at the end of the stiff, shadeless climb is worth the squeeze."
--Andrew Dean Nystrom, Top Trails Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks (Wilderness Press).
