Yellowstone Lake Overlook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Yellowstone Lake Overlook is an easy hike to a knoll with commanding views of the West Thumb of Yellowstone Lake, Duck Lake, the West Thumb Geyser Basin and the Absaroka Range. The trail heads thorough a forest and high mountain meadow to the overlook. The Continental Divide lies just a few miles to the southwest."
--Robert Stone, Day Hikes in Yellowstone National Park (Day Hike Books).
"This half-day trip takes you north from Grant Village, past the West Thumb Geyser Basin and Potts Hot Spring Basin, providing a unique lake-view perspective of these two thermal areas, before returning to the put-in. Be aware of afternoon wind and waves on the lake, no access to shore from the lake at the thermal basins. Attractions include hot springs and geysers of the Lower Group, the Lake Shore Group 1500 feet to the north, and the Potts Hot Spring Basin 0.75 mile farther north."
--Don Nelson, Paddling Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks (Falcon Guides).
