These natural hot springs are absolutely magnificent yet unique. Just off the road and located near a popular tourist town this makes for an awesome day trip. Easy parking, bathrooms and restaurants nearby make for an easy and family friendly trip. 

These natural hot springs are crazy cool and very rare, which makes for an unforgettable trip. The hot springs are located right off of highway 89. With easy parking, restrooms and a town less than half a mile up the road this location is very convenient. The area provides boardwalks which makes viewing the springs close and personal. It is HIGHLY ADVISED TO NOT WANDER OFF THE BOARDWALKS, the ground is very unstable in the area. This area is very populated with Elk and predators of the Elk which influence the Elk to wander and chill in the local town for safety. 

A camera is an essential for this trip. You won't want to forget this experience. During the summer it can get hot so LOTS of WATER and SUN SCREEN. During the winter seasons it can get chilly so bring layers, rain jacket for sporadic weather change and an umbrella. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.

Overall rating: 

My favorite time for Mammoth is winter.

The Hot Springs at Mammoth are a must do if you are in Yellowstone. They are gorgeous any time of year. I love winter in this part of the park as you can be the only ones on the entire trail at many given times. Also, if there in winter, there are cross country ski trails around the hot springs and we have skied here a couple of times and had a blast.

Very Cool

These are very unique and worth the drive. We were fortunate enough to see some elk in town. I would take the time to hike around and explore a little bit

Very Odd, in a Good Way

The springs were pretty darn cool. It's pretty interesting to see what bubbles up from under the Earth. We walked around here for about an hour, after that we got kinda bored.
