Observation Point Professional Review and Guide

"The trail to Observation Point begins at Old Faithful in the Upper Geyser Basin. The trail crosses a bridge over the Firehole River and climbs to a magnificent overlook on a rhyolitic rock outcropping. Perched on the edge of the hill, the vistas extend across the entire Upper Geyser Basin and surrounding mountains, including a bird’s-eye view of Old Faithful. The loop trail descends through a lush forest to Solitary Geyser, with a 4-foot eruption every 5 to 7 minutes. To witness the eruption of Old Faithful from the overlook, check at the visitor center for the estimated eruption time and allow 30 minutes to reach Observation Point."
