Syllabus
Midway Geyser Basin is a 0.7 mile round trip hike with 50 feet elevation gain. Located 88 miles west of Cody Wyoming. The trailhead is car accessible. June and September are the best months to enjoy this hike.


Overview: Firehole River bridge and a following boardwalk lead to Midway Geyser Basin that features Excelsior Geyser crater left after the geyser exploded and now just producing a whole lot of hot water that streams and steams down to the river; Grand Prismatic Pool that is a large round pool of blue hot water with 'prismatic' meaning 'brilliant' here and not 'having form of a prism'; and also a couple of small pools.
