Firehole Lake Drive

Yellowstone National Park Montana

Listing Type: Scenic Highway
City: Yellowstone National Park Montana
Region: Yellowstone Country

Firehole Lake Drive is a one-way side road that was constructed primarily to view this interesting area. Firehole Lake Drive is a very interesting three-mile drive. On the first loop you will encounter the geysers, White Dome, Pine Cone, Narcissus, Steady, and Firehole Lake, one of the Park's largest hot pools.

The White Dome Geyser is a cone-shaped geyser, erupting at intervals of up to 2 minutes, to heights of up to 30 feet.

The Great Fountain Geyser erupts in a series of bursts separated by brief pauses. This geyser erupts at maximum height of 100 to 150 feet with rare bursts of up to 230 feet. The eruptions usually last from 50 to 60 minutes, but has been known to last up to 75 minutes, and the intervals between eruptions can be between 7 to 15 hours.

Directions: South of Madison Junction.
